Paid for it on pay pal. Will we be notified by e-mail about the blocks each month on the first? We were incommunicado for the 1st and 2nd traveling cross country with our brood. And my in-laws only had intermittent internet access during our stay. Thank you so much for your patience! Join and paid with Pay Pal but no confirmation as yet. I am so sorry that you were swamped with emails from people that have nothing better to do than complain.
We all understood when we signed up that you were a very BUSY mom with little ones that come first. Tell the complainers that they must wait their turn. You are doing a great job. Relax and take a deep breath! Life is too short: Finally got the pieces cut and ready to sew tomorrow.
My house will just have to wait. Because of you I was able to accomplish a goal of mine, making a quilt. I followed the BOM on Craftsy and loved every minute. Thank you so much for the time you give us. I, too, live in Denver. A perfect day for me is to go to Fancy Tiger, Sewn and finish with lunch at the Hornet. I hope things settle down and smooth out, but please know you are doing a fantastic job and helping people like me fulfill a dream.
Hope it is okay to be a late comer to the project. I just ordered today. My granddaughter did Craftsy Block of the Month in except for the paper piecing. She saw this and wanted to do this BOM this year. We are doing it together. Hello I also joined on the 4th have you received your welcome letter yet i cant start anyway until my material comes in but was just curious. I am a new quilter and excited to start. Am I overlooking the link? HI I believe you have to go to the flicker group the teal flower at the top part of this page and sign up and join the group The Sugar Block Club then you can post pics.
You are correct…I just posted this morning. You have to set up your Flickr acct so you have a place to store your pics, hen you can post over to the Sugar Block Club. Just joined but was wondering if my stuff will go to my husbands web site Triton msn. My e-mail address has changed since I signed up for the Sugar Block Club.
How can I receive the information about the club? I promised myself I would not buy anymore fabric in the year Did I miss something? I too have paid for this Plwase let me know … thank you. I just signed up for Sugar Block Club, I am so looking forward to getting the first block. I took your class in craftsy. The block of the month. Hi I signed up and paid however have not received an email or anything — how do I access the info for the block and stuff.
What a runaround I have had to try and get all my fabrics in place. So one buys one piece in one place and then have to hunt for colours to match it with!!! Anyway have got my stack in place and will do the first block before the month end! I am a new quilter…took one course in quilting a couple of years ago. But, still find myself struggling along. My first block of the month is finished, but not what I would expect as being perfect.
Will try another this week. Thanks for all the step-by-step assistance. Would you please re-send? Thank you so much. Can not wait to make it repeatedly. Thank you so much Amy. February drove me nuts. My background has a right and wrong side that are hard to tell apart but show when the block is done.
Then I used the main fabric on the wrong petals. I do big complicated paper piecing, but this super-simple-seeming one was a challenge. Ciao, ho ricevuto i due blocchi ma quando cerco di caricare il pdf non ci riesco, ci prova ma si blocca verso la fine.
Grazie buona serata Laura. Ho bisogno di aiuto non riesco a caricare il pdf dei blocchi, come posso fare? Riesci a mandarmeli via e-mail? I hope i can use a credit card? I swear I am a door post! Life is so crazy. I know I am making this too hard. I have a set of printed fat quarters that are calling my name. I assume I will get an email or something from you???? In the past you have made reference to a slip-proof product for your rulers.
Does anyone have some advise on the February block in making the center star with the points? I tried like 3 times, and it makes one side short so the points wont match. What am I dong wrong????? I finally gave up and was gonna use it as is. Nothing worse than giving up on a block due to frustration! I know that I have mention this before and received a reply but I have deleted the email response. Thanks for your help.
Will I receive the January, February and march blocks?? Is there something else I need to do? I suggest you contact Amy directly rather than through this posting because she may check her email more often. I started March 1 and got an email for March and another email giving me access to the February and January blocks within a day of joining. Just signed up yesterday, have saved all the patterns, printed all the foundations and look forward to getting all caught up!!
As soon as I decide on my fabric! May I still join? I NEED to get caught up! I just finished my April block! I reversed my orange and yellow though just for something different since I have basically copied your colors but you do them so well!! I think I will be making a whole quilt out of this block! And I am NOT a paper piecer!! But maybe I will become one yet!
I just joined up for the sugar block club. Will the confirmation email include a link s to the previous block patterns? I got a confirmation email but that was it. If you could resend them or let me know if I am doing something wrong…. Thanks again, Andrea Kirkpatrick. Let me know if you still have trouble…. Amy, I did sign up and get your emails and blog updates.
Thank you, you are such a sweetheart! How do I access the paper piecing pdf files for the blocks? Just found your blog and love it! I also fell in love with this block club! I have a few stacks of Kona solid cottons that would be perfect for these blocks. I have a whole lot of catching up to do! July block has a mistake in the cutting directions.
It should only be 6 squares of the print 1 fabric, light purple, not 8. Thought you may want to update this in the pattern. So there is a mistake on the July block? Please tell me … I need to save the info … Thanks. Hello, I remember getting an email mentioning the Sugar Block Club, but I did not see the email for the September block. Makes for good practice, I suppose, which is what a sampler is all about. If anyone has trouble finding the email for September, it was sent out on September 1 and for a lot of us, went into the spam folder.
Amy, I also realized that we are almost at the end of the year and the Sugar Block Club. I am hoping that you will be doing another one next year. I am sure that with a young family you have a great deal n your plate, but I am sure that many of us look forward to a version. I love your layout. The colors are just perfect and framing them with the white was an excellent touch. I wish to be so creative and also that far along with my blocks.
Had to stop after a few months but now trying to catch-up so I can start the blocks. Have you thought about how you are going to quilt your blocks? Everyone did such a great job.
I kind of got side tracked along the way this year. But maybe some day make a runner or something. Is there going to be anymore info about s? Dear Amy, for , you did a wonderfull job, I loved receiving your BOM-Mail at the 1st of each month and trying out your yummie recipes! I am looking forward to this new adventure in Just finishing up quilting the BOM I must say it is looking awesome for my first quilt. Thanks to your great instructions. Do you think this will work?
Or will it be too busy? Hope that makes sense! I have signed up for the Sugar Block Club! I would like to use fat quarters — how many would I need? Man, i cannot believe that I may have already deleted the first email for ! What do I do? Hi Shana- Have you checked your spam folder?
Thank you for your patience as we get through all of these kinks, which are unfortunately inevitable on the first day of the club. Thanks for your patience as I get through all of these today. Will you send me last months block to catch me up? Could you help with that?
I doubt if there was a dry eye among the dozen ladies. They really appreciated your inspiring challenge. They are looking forward to your remainder challenges. Currently machine quilting BOM. How do I get to them now? Frustrated wiyh MSN please help. Love your blog and SBC. A challenge in April that I will tackle will be leaving my phone in vibrate mode while the family is together for meals and family time.
I have also been slowly getting addicted to screen time. Thanks for all you do. Anyone else not receive theirs. You can expect it shortly…. I mistakenly deleted the May pattern by Amy Gibson you e-mailed on May 1st. Would you please resend so I can complete the pattern? Amy, I need to update my email address for the Sugar Block Club. Please email me so I can give you my new email and I can keep getting my beautiful blocks of the month and your fabulous recipes!!
I saved all my Sugar Block club emails with links to all my block patterns except January? Otherwise I am all good for the patterns.
Is there a way to find those two months here on the website? You can contact me at Rockester charter. Kathy Aho in MN. A lot of the desserts looked really great and the ones I tried were good.
Are you going to continue in with the Sugar Block club? Are you doing things because you feel you have to — traditions that must be continued, for example, or because you want to? Choose those things you really want to do, and do them wholeheartedly. Many years, I have just let go of activities or decorations or events that would cause me frustration or stress instead of pleasure.
Some years I add them back in, other times I choose to spend my time elsewhere. Merry Christmas to you — have a blessed holiday, and thank you for a year of wonderful patterns and thought provoking commentary. I also loved the honest and challenging words your provided this past year.
His Word will not return void Isa Just finished my last Sugar Block Club block. I had four left to do. So for , I will begin the session. No hurry, no pressure. I have all others made.

I have enjoyed the first six blocks! I signed up for the sugar block club and I got the separate email with the block, but did not see the link for the PDF to save the block. Did I just miss it?
