I had no idea so many things were going to happen on December 1st! Not only is today the day for the 12th Benjamin Biggs quilt block but it’s also Cyber Monday, the beginning of the fantastic 12 Days of Christmas sales so why not throw in the drawing for the International Quilt Festival Tote bags!
You’d never know it by these two but it’s hard to not know today is Cyber Monday. It’s the day you’re supposed to do all your Christmas shopping online! Clutch, Zoe and I couldn’t let this day go by without doing something to celebrate too. You have until midnight tonight to use the discount code FREESHIP get FREE SHIPPING on any order shipping within the United States. If you live outside of the U.S. you can get FREE SHIPPING if the postage is $13.50 or less. If it’s over that amount you get 50% off which really means you should be able to fill a Priority Flat Rate International envelope for only $13.50 in postage. An email with all the details went out earlier today.
Today is also the beginning of the yearly 12 Days of Christmas celebration. Each of the next 12 days you receive an email to let you know what that day’s special is. It might be a pattern, fabric or something new
If you’re not on the mailing list be sure to sign up because the I hope you’ll take advantage of this to order some of the new things I’ve been adding to the online store and get any favorite items at greatly reduced prices.
Today is also a Just Takes 2 Benjamin Biggs Quilt day! Now don’t panic thinking you’re getting another block that looks like Block 10 because that’s not the case. Last night I remembered something I learned about this block and wanted to share it with you. On one of the Facebook groups, sorry can’t remember which one, I saw a block that was almost identical to this one and it was called Cross and Trinity. The only difference between the two blocks was the four flower buds on our block were circles so there were three circles around each end of the cross. I’m so mad at myself for not writing down which group it was in. If someone else saw it and can find the picture please share it with our Just Takes 2 Facebook group. If I have time later today I’ll try to look for it again too but on to Block 12!
I just love this block. It’s perfect for the month of December because it reminds me of ends on a Christmas Cactus plant. You’ll have this one stitched in no time at all.

I hope you’re enjoying your monthly journey with the Benjamin Biggs quilt. We’ll be starting the second half of the quilt next month. It will take us through 2015. Time sure does fly when you’re having fun.
