Sugar Block of the Month


It's back! After missing last year Amy is bringing back the Sugar Block of the Month Club. The 2014 blocks were an absolute hit in my book.  So much so, I actually made my sister a full quilt from the January block. For the 2016 edition, Amy is releasing each block as a quilt pattern!  Totally takes away all the math I had to do. She also had made this year FREE, who doe's like free fun? Sign up with the link above. 

Back in 2014, she had us reflect each month on different things. This year Amy has a "twist" each month on a traditional block. January starts with the Churn Dash block.  After learning from last time, I am going to start with making 2 of each block and fill in as needed for 30 total. 



In the write up for the Club, Amy writes about taking a scrappy approach to the blocks. I am a huge fan of scrappy, but controlled scrappy. Starting with this pull I am going to try and stick with these 18 fabrics for the year with a low volume background.

  2. Controlled scrappy is a brilliant approach, and one that you seem very masterful with using.

  3. Great blocks and I like your fabric pull. I joined the club when Amy announced that it was free, but right now I'm just being a stalker and haven't made any blocks yet.

  10. Fantastic pull. This block of the month always seems to end up in a great quilt, and I can't wait to see how this one progresses.
