Sonoran Trail Sew Along- Final Block and Finishing!

It has been a fun six months with the Sonoran Trail Sew Along!  And we are on our final chapter!  I hope you had as much fun with this pattern as I did when I put it together.  This month, I am featuring the final Cactus block and the assembly instructions.

AND…I’m announcing a new Sew Along beginning in November!

Missed a block?

Go to the bottom of this post for links to the patterns!

Sonoran Trail was created with southwestern influences, as I have spent the better part of the past few years exploring the beautiful vistas of Arizona.  Sonoran Trail takes from all those experiences.

Let’s create something beautiful together!


So how does this work?

Beginning on April 1, 2018, blocks were offered on the first of each month. Two blocks (sometimes 3) each month, with the last being offered on October 1, 2018.  Each set of blocks were available free to all Sitcom Readers until the end of that month.

The full Sonoran Trail pattern is now 40% off!

I am currently running a sale in my pattern shop! The full pattern is now available to purchase in my store.  It is a 49 page digital pattern that can be downloaded immediately upon purchase.  Be sure to use the Discount Code: QUILT when checking out!  CLICK HERE to order!

Announcing a New Sew-Along!

Stay tuned for more free patterns!  My new pattern is called Retro Flash and features blocks with a retro 50’s and 60’s theme.  The new Sew-Along should start on November 1, 2018!
