September BoM and a Giveaway!!

Hello to everyone!
Today you're all in for a real treat!

Not only is it the first of the month - so that means a new Block of the Month in our Wild Babies series.... its also..... my business' fourth birthday! So that means we're having a world wide party!



Lets get started with the Block of the Month for September...


It's a cute baby Otter... I think they're called pups... and this one is a fluffy sea otter. They're not so sleek looking as the river otters. I also think this one is a little older, but still a pup...
I look for photos on the web and then make a pattern from all the info gathered. This one with his arm waving at us just couldn't not be made...
I hope you all enjoy sewing this one too!




 Isn't he just too stinkin' cute!!
The pattern was tested for us by Carlene and Joan

Thanks so very much! I love them both! He's so cute I want to hug it....


****************************
Now onto our Giveaway part......


Do you remember this Cat and Bird pattern I made for a Charley Harper swap??





Well, Today he's part of the Giveaway....
Yaaaay!!

The pattern measures 18x20" and is on the intermediate level, but I must warn you - those eyes - well, don't say you didn't know....


Don't leave yet.... there's more.....




This is the Bethlehem Star.... its a feathered star.... and I just couldn't resist making it into an easier paper pieced pattern.

I love the way you could make this in Christmas fabrics or even in monochrome fabrics to get a snowflake....


The pattern is 16" and on the easy intermediate level...
I'm feeling a cute Christmas lap quilt coming on....................


Enjoy!



GIVEAWAY HAS CLOSED.............

The Block of the Month is here my Craftsy Shop......

Thanks so much for the freebie patterns. Your work never ceases to amaze me, and I love the fact that you are so generous. Many of us LOVE what you do, but paying for all the beautiful patterns from everyone we follow is difficult, at best. I don't always make all the patterns offered, but appreciate being able to save them for the future. THANK YOU!!!
