I have a group of ladies that I send out a monthly newsletter to. It started out as a way of letting people know about new products on my website but evolved into much more than that. It now includes a free stitchery block of the month pattern; specials on my patterns; and an inspiration column which includes a word of encouragement from the Bible.
In the past we have done Words of Hope quilt (which is now a pattern) and a quilt featuring houses (not a pattern).
It's based on the I am statements that Jesus made in the book of John.
Finished size is 32" x 32". I used the Summertime Friends range of fabrics by Lynette Anderson for my quilt but it's very scrappy and suitable for pieces from your stash.
Besides the stitcheries, there are pieced blocks - bowtie, diamond in a square, pinwheel - and some blanket stitch applique heart blocks.
This year we will be doing a new block of the month in the newsletter. If you think you would like to join the group or would like to find out more about it, please email me.
Until next time
