August BoM

 



Hello August.... already.
This month for our Dinosaur Block Patterns we have the

Drumroll please....


Our block for August is a Plesiosaurus

The pattern measures 12" (31cm)





This is a photo of these animals 'real' size according to the size of their skeleton remains.
Their necks are apparently not as long as all the illustrations you see.


This is where we are at the moment in our dino journey.


You can adopt your Dinosaur for $1 from my Online Shop.

The small fee goes towards feeding all the animals in the containment area.... thanks!

July BoM and Magazine

 


Hello everyone

Its July... Not sure if I should be excited...
June proved itself to be HORRIBLE!! so I'm a little weary.

Anyhoo
The July Dinosaur block is an Oviraptor
Pattern measures 12" (31cm)

Some of the images you find on this animal has winged arms and feathers in the tail and others show the 'Ostrich' type animal like an oversized lizard. Who knows??

The June Club news

Since the crash of the subscriptions in my shop it seems that no one is really interested in this venture anymore. From the 60 people who were signed up only 4 people stuck around.
I don't think I'm going to make any of these patterns anymore.

Thank you to those who stuck by me. 




For June we have a beautiful Swan with her babies on her back measuring 24"


and a Wolf howling measuring 16"


The Rhino is the second quarterly pattern and measures 12"


Our line up this year looks like this -

May News

 

Hello Everyone

From today (1 May 2022) we are going to be doing things in the shop a little differently.

I have decided that all the subscriptions will be ended. I have cancelled all the paypal subscriptions already. The add on feature for subscriptions in the shop just will not work properly!!! and I pay so much to have that feature and the IT guys can't get it to work - SO -

NO more subscriptions!!

I will still make the magazine and the Club Patterns as usual, but you will get them through the shop as a single item. 

I'm really sorry if that throws a spanner into the engine but I have had so much stress with these issues in the shop and I feel I need to simplify things for all concerned.

Thank you  

xoxo

First up we have the 

Block of the Month for May

Its a Stegosaurus


Here's a look at our motley crew so far....

April BoM, Club and Mag.

 


Hello

Its already April and let's hope its a whole lot better than March.

Today we have Dino #4
a Pterodactyl

Welcome to Quilt Club!

For April we see another quarterly block (a lovely black Rhino - 12") and the 
Nature blocks are a Lioness (24") and the Baobab Trees (16")

I decided to not go with the pop art in the large nature block anymore. It seemed
that not that many of you liked them as I had hoped.


Our lineup is growing for this year.
Last year's blocks (2021) can be found in the shop for sale now.


This CLUB is a subscription group that you can belong to
where we will be making modern blocks, random animals and birds, have a block swap and generally loads of fun.

***********************



Its also time for more exciting CLUB patterns!!

For March we have our 2 new blocks - An Eagle (24") and a Sea Turtle (16")

This year I want to make the larger nature blocks in the Pop Art colouring, but feel free to make your block up just as you like. If you prefer the 'real look' then you do you... no problem.


This CLUB is a subscription group that you can belong to
where we will be making modern blocks, random animals and birds, have a block swap and generally loads of fun.

Older months blocks (Back issues of patterns) can be gotten from me directly for $12 per month you need. You will need to be part of the club to get them tho'



*************************

And Now!!
Something else too.

This is a Sunflower for Ukraine.

Their national flower is a Sunflower and their flag is blue and yellow (which looks like a field of sunflowers with the sky above it).

There is NO way in heck we can ever send them something that could make up for their losses right now, so Im giving away this Sunflower in the hope that when you make it you will think of them and pray for them and when you look at your wall hanging or cushion or table cloth, you think of how fragile life really is. My heart really hurts for these people, their pets, their homes, possessions. 


This is the link to go and download your free Sunflower (18") pattern.
