Can you believe we’ve come this far! Time just seems to be flying! This month, we will be working on the final 2 blocks of the Sew Sweet Simplicity Free Block of the Month. If you’ve just found us- Welcome! You can still sign up- you will receive ALL of the previous blocks PLUS a bonus tote bag pattern. Just click here to sign up for FREE. Next month, you will get the instructions to put your quilt together.
Now, something very important to share with you- After this Block of the Month event is over next month, the pattern links will be de-activated. So- you will want to save the PDF patterns to your computer, or print them out for safe keeping (I recommend doing both! Just to make sure!) You will have until mid- to late March to save your patterns. I recommend doing it now if you haven’t done so already for all of the previous patterns. PLEASE check the FAQ page for tips on how to download and save the patterns, how to find your patterns if you didn’t get the email, etc. Then, if none of those tips work, please email me. Do not leave a comment here to tell me that you have not received your block– you will get a faster response if you email. (The emails with the patterns just went out, so if you haven’t gotten yours yet, please be patient- for some reason, we have found that it can sometimes take up to 24 hours for the emails to hit some inboxes.)
And so…. On to the fun!
All of my photos were taken after the quilting was done. My long-arm quilter did a phenomenal job- I just love both of my quilts! This is my Block 4 in the appliqued version:

For those of you who have been asking- yes, I am working on a new Block of the Month for 2015! This one will probably start around May and will run for about 5 months. I will also have kits available- and the fabric is GORGEOUS.
