Why hello dear friends! What a delight to finally be back on the blog after a much-needed hiatus! Oh how I’ve missed you! SO so much to catch up on. We’ve been busy! At the moment though, anything BUT busy is the goal. We’re savoring a fabulously mellow Thanksgiving weekend here in the Gibson household…a feast with loved ones yesterday, and this weekend we’re kicking our feet up with leftover pie, movies, and Christmas decorating (and perhaps a few sled runs if this snow keeps up).
WELL, on to the title of this post…the Sugar Block Club! As some of you might know, the Sugar Block Club is the monthly block of the month program I’ve hosted here on my blog since 2013. This year (2015), I decided to take a break from it to allow time for some other exciting projects. Well, I am happy to say that the Sugar Block Club is back, and this time it will be free! That’s right, this year’s club is free!
Starting January 1, 2016, I’ll be posting monthly sampler block patterns right here on my blog. And it’s easy to stay up to date when new blocks or patterns are added- just enter your email address below to subscribe to receive
Along with the free block tutorial, I’ll also be offering for-purchase downloadable quilt patterns to accompany each block. So you can follow along with me and stitch up a single block each month, or, if you like, you can go a step further and stitch a whole new quilt inspired by that month’s block! It’s the best of both worlds! Then at the end of the year, we’ll explore some fun, unique layout ideas for sewing your blocks together.
I do hope you’ll join me in following along with this year’s Sugar Block Club! Mark your calendar, start thinking about your fabrics, and be sure you are subscribed so that you don’t miss any updates.
Happy Thanksgiving! XO
