Just Takes 2 - The Benjamin Biggs Quilt

Today is the start of the Just Takes 2 Benjamin Biggs quilt. I hope you'll join Brenda and me for this journey. She has the first block for you. The link to her Just Takes 2 page is at the bottom. You'll be able to download the pattern for FREE for one month. It will then be retired to the Online Store where you can purchase any of the blocks you missed.

There's lots of places to share things with each other, post pictures of your blocks and get help if you have any questions. The Just Takes 2 blog site hasn't been fully updated yet but there is a Basic Information Page for the quilt. It has the fabric requirements, block schedule and other information you may find helpful. You can always email us if you have questions.

If you'd like to add a special Just Takes 2 button to your own blog for the Benjamin Biggs quilt you can get the code below -

    Thank you so much for making this available! I was “sitting on the fence” trying to decide if I want to commit to this project, when I saw that Benjamin Biggs was born in Frederick county, MD…our county! I’ll definitely e participating!

    I cannot figure out how to sign up for the monthly Biggs quilt blocks – can you please add my name and e-mail address to your mailing list so that I receive the block automatically each month. I already have block 1 – many thanks, KLB

    The blocks are 16″ and the quilt finishes at 100″ x 100″

    There’s nothing to sign up for. You just need to visit Sentimental Stitches and Dear Jane to pick up your free blocks. There’s a schedule for where the blocks will be HERE. The first block is still available at Dear Jane until Feb. 1 when the second block will be here at Sentimental Stitches.

    I vote for the dark purple polka dot background. At first I thought it was black and of course, you *know* I’m going to vote for that! LOL But seriously, the dark purple polka dot is really interesting and I think it highlights your focus fabrics well.

  4. Home Sweet Home Quilt : A lawn that doesn't need mowed! Frugal Little Bungalow - July 2, 2014

    […] The Benjamin Biggs Wedding Quilt is beautiful. Applique is slow and tedious…I think there is more time in the prep work than in the stitching, until I get to a point on a leaf and then look out…but given that it is slow, and there is only so much time, what did I want to focus on going forward? I decided that for the moment, I’d still download the BB blocks each month while they are so graciously provided by Just Takes 2 for free, but that I would continue on with the red and green blocks that I was doing now, and go ahead and take the plunge and order the Home Sweet Home book by Blackbird Designs.
