Lisa Bongean/American Quilters SAL

American Quilter’s SAL-Block 3

 

Hey…It’s time for Block 3!!! I am in Kansas with 64 HAPPY Quilters!!!   Having a blast stitching away!!! We are in Bennington Kansas with Lynne from Kansas Troubles Quilter’s and Debbie Maddy as well…

Every week I get someone saying they cannot find this or that….so…because I do not have time to answer everyone and personally send them the PDF…I will link all the blocks each week in the current week’s blog post….so there should be no reason someone can’t find something… If yours prints in French that is not on my end and you need to figure that out….sorry…look for the red buttons…those are the block directions..

 

Block 3 is ready as can be!!!! 

But first….Did you remember to send us a donation?  I am going to pester you all… everytime until we reach the goal of $25K….We really really really…want to raise a bunch of money for Hogs for Heros!!!!  WE are off to a wonderful start!!
