Hi Jana, You did an AWESOME job on this 'Snow Blosson' block. Have you ever done something like this before? You will become a GREAT quilter in the future. You should be sooooo proud of your beautiful work. Thanks for sharing it with all of us. Happy Quilting, Darlene....

What is the Sugar Block Club?

it is a BOM being done by Amy Gibson @ Stitchery Dickery Dock. Amy did the Crafsty BOM for 2012. This is just one block a month and a recipe. It is 7.95 for the year. So far I think it won't be too complicated.

VERY nice job. My grandaughter (8 years old) loves to watch me sew my quilt blocks. I got her a little sewing machine for Christmas and she is chomping at the bit to begin making her blocks. Will be a while before she gets as good as this though.

That is wonderful. That is about when Jana started. I started her with a little singer. However it was difficult to control the speed. A co-worker got a new machine and sold me her old one so now she has a machine with speed control and she has a 1/4 " foot. We started by just sewing strips together. She made doll quilts. And she did the Craftsy 2012 BLOCK OF THE MONTH. I am sure you will have a great time with your granddaughter. I can't wait to see what she does.
