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!

Pour yourself a cup of tea, relax and we'll get started!

Benjamin Biggs Quilt Block 10Today 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!

Benjamin Biggs Block 12


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.

    Maybe I missed it, but what happened to Block 11 for November?

    Block 11 was posted on the Dear Jane web site on November 1st. I’m afraid we’re on to Block 12 for December but you can order Block 11 – HERE
    The odd numbered blocks are posted at Dear Jane and the even numbered blocks at Sentimental Stitches.

    I didn’t realize I had to go directly to Dear Jane’s site. I have always gone through your page. Oh well lesson learned, things don’t always go the same.

    Fay you are not alone. Happened to me too. Sigh. Lesson learned here too – now to just hope I remember it.

    I didn’t get block 11 either. I follow your blog and there wasn’t a posting indicating we needed to go to the Dear Jane website for the block. Oh well.
