Hi everyone, I've been pretty quiet on the blog front. I'm working away on filling in the centre block and it may be a few days late. As you can see from the progress photo below I still have a few leaves to stitch and then I can start on the critters. I have prepared the templates for these but have to pull fabric and stitch there are lots of tiny pieces which may prove to be a bit scary but we will see how it turns out. I could post the templates on the 15th but I would prefer to have a finished block picture to post with them so it may just be a few days late.
I've been thinking long and hard about my next BOM program and I have decided that once this BOM is finished I think this will be my last free BOM for a while and I will change it up next time. I know we all love free stuff however in order for my business to continue I need to sell patterns, so next BOM the block's will be on sale for half price for a month then go up to full price. That way I can cover the cost of the running my website and maybe actually pay for the fabric to make the quilt.
As I will be selling the patterns from the outset the lead time for the next BOM will probably be a little bit longer as I will want to get most of the quilt finished before we start. I know that this will mean I will probably lose a lot of subscribers but in the end this is my business and I need to make enough money to keep it going which sadly isn't happening at the moment.
