Oh my goodness, can you believe we are already up to block #3?! I’ve been following your progress over in the free Facebook group– you guys are doing a GREAT JOB on your Blocks!!!

Here are some of the photos that you’ve posted for Block #2- remember, everyone who signs up gets the applique & embroidery flower designs, and the bug designs are exclusively for members of The Art of Home Club:

Time for another free quilt block! PLEASE NOTE- I realize that there is A LOT OF INFORMATION IN THIS POST! PLEASE TAKE THE TIME TO READ THROUGH IT ALL- Answers to most of your questions will be found in this post. Thanks!!

The third block for the Happy Little Things Free Block of the Month was sent out a short time ago. If you are signed up, please check your email for your pattern. (Please note- sometimes it can several hours for the email to reach your inbox. If you don’t have it yet, please be patient and check back a little later.)

If you can’t find your email, please check your spam folder, and Gmail users please check your “Promotions” folder. If you still can’t find it, please email me  We do our best to answer as soon as possible. PLEASE do not comment here to tell us that you can’t find your email- you comment will be deleted! Please email for assistance. Thank you!!

VERY IMPORTANT- If you email us a question and don’t hear back in 24-48 hours, please check your spam folder! We answer all emails, so if you don’t hear back from us, it’s very possible that our response is in your spam folder!!

For technical questions, like how to download/save a PDF, etc. please visit our Frequently Asked Questions page.

If you are NOT signed up yet, please fill in the box in the upper right side bar of THIS PAGE to get your FREE block patterns, or click here to sign up! NOTE- THE PATTERNS ARE NOT ON MY WEBSITE OR BLOG- YOU MUST SIGN UP TO RECEIVE THEM BY EMAIL.

Just ONE MORE THING- Please download and save the files to your computer immediately, so that you can find them when you need them. Don’t rely on trying to find the email with the links later- As many have found, emails tend to get lost, even when you put them in a special folder :)  As this event grows larger with more and more participants, it gets more difficult for me to reply to emails requesting that I re-send the patterns. THANKS SOOOOOO MUCH!!!!

OK- time for the fun!

Here is my Block #3, done with the Cottage colorway and machine applique. I love this classic Red, Pink, Black and Light Blue palette:


See that cute little ladybug charm? You can get them in our shop here.


And here is the Desert colorway, shown with hand embroidery. The bug designs are EXCLUSIVE to The Art of Home Club members– you can’t get them anywhere except our Club. And look at the cute tiny little buttons that I used to decorate my block!!

Guess what? We are opening up the Club to new members starting on
