Announcing The 2013 Sugar Block Club!

Hi All! I’m SO excited to share my latest project with you- The Sugar Block Club! If you enjoyed the Craftsy Block of the Month, you’re going to love this…

Yup, a new block of the month series! This time, I’m branching out and offering you a sweet monthly treat for your inbox- 12 fresh modern blocks (but all with traditional roots), laid out in clear, step-by-step printable patterns. Follow along with me and make a throw-sized sampler quilt from your twelve 12″ blocks, or let the blocks stand alone. Each is worthy of a quilt all it’s own! Plus, each block pattern will come with one of my tried & true favorite dessert recipes (and you all know what a sucker I am for sweets!)

Better than chocolates or tulip bulbs or fruit….the Sugar Block Club pattern subscription makes a great holiday gift for your quilting friends! Just make a note with your payment (or email me) if you want the patterns to be sent to an email address other than the one associated with your PayPal account.

It’s going to be a fun year! I sure hope you’ll join me! Sign up now, and you’ll receive your first pattern on Jan 1, 2013.

And don’t forget to grab the button for your site!


2013 Sugar Block Club




  1. Just signed up for the sugar block club and looking forward to crafting and cooking. I so enjoyed your block of the month on Craftsy. Hopefully I will finish that quilt before I start the new blocks! Already making a fabric filled Christmas wish list.

  2. Dorothy B. says:

    Looking forward to the Sugar Block Club….what fun..quilting and cooking!! I enjoyed your block of the month class on Craftsy. You are such a great teacher and can not believe that you do it all with 4 youngsters running around…and twin newborns!!! You are fantastic.

  3. Amy, where did you purchase your solid fat quarter set for the Sugar Block Club?

  4. I just joined up. I enjoyed the Craftsy BOM and today while I was basting my quilt (I do the Sharon Schambers method with the boards and a needle and thread) I was thinking that I would like a bigger one that would fit my queen sized bed with sides that hang down. I was thinking about 30 blocks, and then I had a brain storm. So, now I’ll have 32 blocks a couple to spare for the back. In a year, I should be able to do this years again, and next years, too. Now to decide on colors, this one is a bit on the wild side.

  5. Chris Vogel says:

    Just signed up for this. Looking forward to BOM I love them, its something new to look forward every month.

  6. Amy, I have a fat quarter bundle of Kona solids, but it has dark browns and blacks and it’s darker than yours. Where do I go to purchase one just like yours? I did Craftsy BOM with the same fabric as you used and love it. I want to do the same here. Can’t wait to hear back from you. Jeanne

  7. Just signed up! So excited. I am fairly new to quilting and love every minute I can get to quilt.

  8. Is it possible to put together a bundle of these colors together ourselves if there are no more available in your shop?
    I am so excited about this new BOM and want to be able to start as soon as you post the first month!

  9. Just signed up as I finally watched the last lessons of the 2012 Block of the month with Craftsy. I have not made the quilt but am getting up the courage soon. I will be retiring and hopefully will have some time to myself. I love watching you work. You make it look so easy. The projects posted by other are truly inspirational. I want to do it too. I did just finish my 5th quilt. A repeat of my 1st quilt. I made it for my daughter and she will have it for Christmas. I quilted it on my Long Arm…my first attempt. I probably should have practiced more but I had fun doing it. I have been collecting patterns and materials…now I just have to get going on the making of all these lovely quilts I want to make.

  10. Just signed up!! Looking forward to a year of quilting :)

  11. Hi Amy! I just signed up for the Sugar Block Club and I’m excited for January to get here! I did the Craftsy BOM and loved it (I just wasn’t able to keep posting my completed blocks)! I am interested in this fabric bundle as well so any info is appreciated. Thanks again for being such an awesome inspiration!

  12. Hi there! I am interested in signing up. I am curious about the list of required fabric/notions as well as knowing whether or not videos will be part of the class. These two things will help me in making my decision. Many thanks! – Jen

    • Hi Jen! Folks who sign up for the club will receive a welcome email with requirements, etc, within 24 hours of sign up. And I see my reply to Gail (above) for more info regarding your question about video…. xo

  13. Hi Gail! The Sugar Block Club will actually not contain any videos, as it is a very different concept than the Craftsy BOM, which was a class. This club will be a subscription series- like receiving a magazine or a bouquet of flowers each month- only it will be a quilt block pattern and a dessert recipe. The patterns will contain photos/graphics to illustrate the steps, so as long as you understand basic quilting techniques, like cutting and stitching a 1/4″ seam, you should be fine. Also, I’ll be including links to relevant segments from the Craftsy BOM (such as how to make half square triangles or flying geese, if a block in the club contains those types of patches). Hope this helps, and thanks for stopping by!

  14. I received my material today. I’m all excited and looking forward to getting started.

  15. Diane Comstock says:

    Enjoyed your Craftsy BOM. Started it last March with two girlfriends. We went to each other’s homes every two weeks and then weekly during the summer. unfortunately, I had an accident in October and have yet to finish the second August square and the September and October squares. Now that my hand is better, I hope to finish those squares shortly. Looking forward to doing new squares with the Sugar Block Club and my set of fat quarters received for Christmas (thanks to my family).

  16. Roberta jehn says:

    I just purchased your FQ bundle. I am delighted that you were able to get the solid colors. Your intro email said that 1 1/8 yards of white or other background color was needed. Is white the best background color to use, or will another color work? White is my least favorite color. I want a color that will showcase the beautiful rainbow colors. Will black work? Thank you for your reply.

  17. Hi Amy. I enjoyed the Craftsy BOM so much that I signed up for the Sugar Block Club BOM. Better late than never. Happy New Year

  18. grandmajim says:

    Thank you Amy for your great BOM and precise instructions, just finished it and it great to add to all my other blocks.

  19. I just signed up for your class. I really enjoyed the 2012 BOM class and learned alot. I am looking forward to starting this class too. Oh, and your twins are adorable too!

  20. Hi Amy
    On the 10th I signed up for The Sugar Block Club and did receive an initial “welcome” message, but have yet to received my January pattern. I realize you are very busy with your new additions and with computers being what they are you’ve probably have had some “glitches”. I’m taking a class at a local quilt store to help me with making a T-shirt quilt, so I’m not “desperate” but just want to let you know that I hope that it will be showing up in my email soon. I hoping to add the new blocks to 2012 BOM along with some other blocks to make a queen size quilt for a friend I am trying to get to learn to sew. He’s a very talented art teacher who just moved into a new home and I want to make him something special. If you have any additional suggestion for blocks, I’m open to learning more. I’ve been using batiks with black and they really look great! Thanks

  21. Just added Sugar-Block-Club to my monthly quilting fix:) Looking forward to getting caught up as soon as I receive the January and February Block patterns. I’ve already looked at some of the completed blocks and they are beautiful:)

  22. Is it too late to join? I want to join this looks like fun.

  23. Me gustaría participar, si aún estoy a tiempo

  24. Just signed up, cannot wait until I can start my block
