True, isn’t it?

Cassandra and I have given you 12 quilt blocks now and we truly hope you are taking a lot of enjoyment from the Quilt Concert. I know I have been loving it! I have a feeling that many of you aren’t posting your blocks on Instagram tho, which is my FAVORITE THING TO SEE!!! I adore seeing what everyone makes, so I would absolutely be grateful if you emailed me photos of what you’ve done! You can email me at I will be sure to share what you send me on Instagram as well.

Before I give you this week’s download, I’m going to give you a little secret! There’s a new swap heading this way! I posted a sneak peek pic on Instagram, but incase you missed it, here it is again…

Does this give you a clue as to what the swap is? Sign ups will be soon, I just want to finish this free pattern that will go out to all who join. Remember, newsletter subscribers get signup notification before everyone else and exclusive sign up time for 48 hours before it opens to everyone.
