Well, they zoomed on over from Delaware to Ontario pretty quickly didn’t they? Hehehe…
Once again Sam is the free block for Ontario, I love this block, and how realistic it appears to be sawing the tree.
Sue is the Flickr reward block.
Sam will be free until January 25, the Flickr turn in date is February 11, 2018.
So, let’s get to the download…
Sue and Sam of Delaware have been released, Tomorrow, I’ll be releasing Ontario for Canadians waiting for that release.
This one is not an easy pattern, or at least I didn’t think so. It does require some work on the tree blossoms for Sue, which is btw, the free pattern for this release.
A recommended solution for the small leafy parts of the tree from my tester is that you take and print or mark your fabric for those for the entire embroidery layout, and then use your machine to stitch over the leafs, then cut them instead of cutting all the small shapes involved with the tree. There are two different fabrics for the leaf shapes, a darker and a lighter fabric, and she used the layout guide to create hers. She noted that because the larger flowers have both embroideries in the background that she cut her flowers and then stitched them in place right on the background versus doing it separately first. This release was planned for this past Tuesday, Continue reading
I am happy to finally release Sunbonnet Sue and Sam Canada – Prince Edward Island. This is a pretty simple design for the Island, but cute none the less.
Sam is the Free block for this release
The Flickr Turn in date is Nov 29, 2017.
So, let’s get to the downloads…
As some of you know I’ve been trying to get these files for Sue and Sam released all week.
I ran into an issue when finishing up the pattern for Sue. I realized that the key for the shapes was wrong. This would have been a big problem for you when you pieced her together. Not only did I have to fix that, but the SVG files also needed to be fixed.
I finally have the patterns ready and I can get them released.
Canada should be released next week along with the next Twas The Night Before Christmas Blocks.
Next up in the releases is Sue and Sam In Georgia… I love this pattern set, so fun and quite delicate at the same time. Kind of reminds me of those porcelain niknaks that were popular when I was a little girl. I can’t for the life of me remember the name now, but maybe someone knows what I mean…
With Georgia, Sam is the Free pattern, and Sue is the rewards block.
Created in Electric Quilt with commissioned artwork that is exclusive to use by Seams To Be Sew from Clipartopolis. I hope you enjoy this absolutely adorable set of patterns for Georgia.
I should have written this page long ago, but it’s done now, so should help you know what has been released and hasn’t. I will keep it updated with each release of the various blocks.
This year I’m taking on two blocks of the month projects. Originally these were scheduled to be one year block of the month projects, but I realize now, they are going to have to be two-year projects. I will, however, try to finish the Canadian Sue and Sam in one year.
The first is a continuation of last years Sue and Sam Travel the World, but this year they are traveling the USA and Canada. Each state and province will be done.
The second is a paid block of the month featuring the story of Twas The Night Before Christmas.
This page is here to let you see what’s been released during the year, and what the guidelines are for the year.
I don’t have any good excuses why this is so late, but it’s finally here and I’m happy to have the fifth province done…. almost half way there and I really do want to try and finish them all this year. So, here is Manitoba, and the next set release for Canadian Sue and Sam is Prince Edward Island. I have them drawn, and just need to finish up the digitizing files for the tester to work on, so hopefully, she will get them this week.
It’s been a busy summer and I will try to release updates during the Christmas Caroling Row Along, but any updates will be released on days where the event is not going on, such as Monday, Wednesdays or Fridays.
So, let’s get to the downloads… Sue is the free file for this release. Continue reading
