When you join, you’ll receive a welcome email withing 24 hours that includes login information so you can access patterns immediately for all the blocks we’ve made so far. After that, you can expect to receive a new block pattern from me via email on the 1st of each month, for the remainder of the year. If, at any time, you don’t think you’ve received a pattern, be sure to check your junk folder first, and then if you still don’t see it, pop me an email. Could be as simple as your email server filtering out marketing-style emails, and I can help you trouble shoot around that.
Here’s what we’ve stitched & baked up so far:
My inspiration for this year’s monthly block series sprang from an antique pattern catalog that a friend gifted me for my birthday last year. I was so charmed to read about the self-described “modern” ladies of 1933, who delighted in keeping the historic blocks of their colonial ancestors alive through their interpretations of timeless blocks. It really struck a chord with me, and really re-enforced what I love about traditional patchwork- it’s always in style, and looks great with any style fabric. So all of my designs for this year’s Sugar Block series are traditionally rooted, with lovely vintage charm, full of pretty stars, flowers, and diamonds. I encourage you choose to use whatever fabrics you like! No matter whether you go with modern fabrics, 1930s or Civil War reproductions, Batiks, or solids, we’ll be breathing fresh life into some classic patchwork, building our skills, and having fun! And that’s what it’s all about, right?!
