I love it, I wasn’t producing new block patterns quickly enough for a little girl named Caitlyn, so she decided to enlist her mom’s help and come up with another block for Little House in the Big Woods! I love her enthusiasm! She emailed Lily asking if she would like to sew the block too. It’s a Maple Leaf block to go along with the Sugar Snow chapter. As it turns out, Lily is reading the third book now, Farmer Boy, and there is a chapter on sugaring down the sap and making maple syrup. Like so many of the blocks, it will suit multiple books.
Caitlyn’s mom, Tiffany, has provided a pdf with directions to make this block if you’d like to join us! Download it here. See Caitlyn’s beautiful block here.
If you are sewing along and come up with a great block idea like Caitlyn did, please feel free to share it with me so I can share it with others! Thank you for your contribution to the sew along Caitlyn.
Lily is ready to work on her first Farmer Boy block this week. We’ll be making a barn. Check back!
