And…. Then There Were More BOTMs….

Fat Cat Patterns - Fiesta Siesta

…and then there were three more in my inbox yesterday. Thank you all for writing to me about these botms, Each of them looks wonderful. 

Both From My Carolina Quilts and Collection Edith have already started, but it’s not too late to also get started as they both seem to be in the first month. I had never been to Collection Edith’s site before, she came recommended from a follower of this blog and WoW, she has some amazing patterns. I was truly impressed.

Fat Cat Patterns new botm is her 3rd one for this year and it starts March 1, 2019. I have followed her botms for the last six years and love every single one of Sindy’s projects. 

These BOTMs have already been added to my 2019 BOTM page.

A small note of concern was in my email yesterday and I would like to address that now…

Newest BOTMs Added To List for 2019

Buttermilk Basin

Buttermilk BasinHi Everyone, I’ve added a few new block of the months going on around the web to my 2019 list. I thought you might like to know about them, so really quickly, here they are..

I definitely have my favorite block of the months I look foward to each year and so I was happy to see that Buttermilk Basin and Morning Glory‘s botms had started. You might have missed block 1 from Buttermilk Basin, but block 2 is up and if you like working with wool (you can do them in cotton also) you will want to get to their site and get block 2 downloaded.

Reeze always does her main block for each month and then throws in a bonus block, so be sure you are on her newsletter so you get the coupon code for the bonus block.

The cute Gingerbread Village BOTM from Days filled with Joy is just getting started and is an absolutely adorable embroidery BOTM.

And… At Little Rabbit Quilt Co, Rosie is starting a new BOTM on March 01, if you visit her blog you can already tell this is a BOTM you won’t want to miss as she has some very cute patterns. I’m just getting to know Rosie as she has signed up to do the Row Along this year but I can tell she’s gonna be a great friend already.

These BOTMs are also Continue reading

Sue and Sam Kentucky and Saskatchewan Released… + 2 more Free Patterns…

Cupcake Love

I know it’s been a long time coming. I am slowly getting back on track but my internet issues are becoming worse and worse. Three times since December someone has been here to try and fix the problem. The internet will be good for a week and then be back to on/off, on/off..I would actually change carriers, but I have no clue who to switch to. I’ve already been thru 2 of them because they up there prices after a few months… I can’t afford to pay more than a certain amount so I need to stay with a company that at least keeps there prices the same for at least a year at a time. I definitely need to switch phone companies tho. When my internet goes down, the phone also goes down. So my advice to you, don’t use the same phone company (landline, possibly even moble) that you have your cable with. I really don’t recommend it.

Suffice it to say this post has been a long time in the writing. Over the last few weeks I’ve been trying to get these patterns posted. I finally finished them today.

I am releasing February’s Cupcake of the Month, Sue and Sam from Kentucky and Sue and Sam In Saskatchewan. I also have some very cute gnomes today that I am releasing. They are all available on my Payhip store. However, I also have 4 free patterns for you today… Who loves Free 🙂 I know I do.

I am also looking for two new testers, if you have applique experience, please see the post inside.

So, open the post and find the Free downloads…

My First Block Of The Month… Do You Remember It?

Little Treasures

Little Treasures BOM

It seems funny to me that it’s been four years now since I offered what was my first block of the month. They were these very cute dolls from Graphics and Graphics. It was called Little Treasures. I’ll show you some of the patterns in that set in this post for those of you not aware of it…

I’ve often said how much I love seeing the patterns created, part of the reason I do my block of the months the way I do now is so that I can see them be done. I don’t like forcing people to do them, but they are an amazing amount of work and time to create so I went that route so that my time would also pay off in seeing how you created the pattern into fabric and decoration. Hopefully into a beautiful quilt that will be treasured.

This past week, one of my first “followers” someone whose name I immediately recognize as just that, Joyce Carter Continue reading
