Sugar Block Club

I should have posted this in January but was waiting to have some pictures to share. Mom and I are doing the Sugar Block of the month club from Stitchery Dickory Dock

You sign up for the club and every month you get an email with a new block to make. It seems like the blocks are traditional but Amy Gibson has modernised them for easy sewing and cutting. In the email you will also get a recipe for a tasty treat. (You can still subscribe.) I decided to use my new Amy Butler Alchemy material for this year long sew along…

When the first email arrived I was excited to start. The January block was introduced as snow blossom…

I decided which fabrics I wanted to use and lost no time sewing. It came together very swiftly…

I loved doing this block so much I also did a Christmas version because I need more squares for the retro Christmas sampler quilt that I’ve been doing for about a year or so now…

There is also a Flickr group for this project so you can check out what everyone else is doing for their monthly block. Check out the group here.

I see that some people have already started on the February block so I better get going! I’ll give you a sneak peak at the pattern though. It’s called North Star…

I’m not sure which of the Alchemy fabrics I will uses for this block but I will keep you posted. I’m thinking of using 4 different ones for where the blue sits.

I hope to get pics from mom too so that you can see her lovely blocks too!

  1. What pretty blocks. I can’t wait to see the rest. I thought about doing this one but decided I should just concentrate on keeping up with the Skill Builder BOM hosted by PileOFabric.

    • Hi thank you. I will check out that BOM club too. If you go on the Craftsy website you can actually get Amy Gibson’s 2012 BOM for free! With patterns and excellent video tutorials. It’s well worth a look. I love the October Foundation Piecing ones she did. I might try some of these blocks too!
