Sue & Sam – Nebraska and Idaho Arrive At Seams To Be Sew Today…

Today I SS Neb IDAhave for you Sue & Sam in Nebraska and Idaho. I know it seems like it’s been a while, but 12 Days kept me very busy as did the rest of December and January.  Because I’m also trying to finish up Twas the Night I have held off doing these and at the same time, I do expect to have at least two releases per month over the next few months of 2 states per release. I need to finish Twas The Night which is just two more blocks and then it’s done and we’ll be zooming on Sue/Sam in the USA… I won’t finish by my March deadline, but I do think we can finish by June 2020 if all goes well.

We are finally at the halfway point for Sunbonnet Sue/Sam… doing 50 states is a big undertaking, Nebraska is the 25th state, and Sue/Sam USA is now 50 blocks large. Idaho makes it the 26th state, so we are now more than halfway done… LOL!! and there are 52 blocks. In the end, you’ll have 100 blocks for this botm.

You’ll notice some changes in the pdf patterns. I have changed the background block on the Sue / Sam’s, as I really wanted to showcase the block in a much nicer way and I will be updating the other 25 patterns also. If you purchased them you will receive an email of an updated file. I’m sorry, the previous free patterns are not getting the update. I’ve also discovered that my machine embroidery digitizing software offers a really cool feature that allows me to tell you what “shape” the thread colors belong to, so this has also been added. This feature was actually added as of the Twas The Night patterns that were released two weeks ago, but it will be great for you to know also that the stops should be the same colors sometimes, even tho I still mention this separately.
