June's Bona Lisa's Sweater Emporium BOM Block

I hate when the first of the month sneaks up on me.
I am so sorry the block is late. It's been a bit of a while ride around here lately.
But without further ado...

This is "Hideous Hat"! One of Bona Lisa's wild sweaters.
You can find the pattern HERE for free this month only, then it goes into my Etsy shop.

This is "A Tight Knit Group" by Carla from "Creatin'in the Sticks".
You can find all the information on her block HERE.

Whip these up for yourself and be sure to show us your blocks! 

How does our Bona Lisa's Sweater Emporium BOM work? 
It runs from January 1st through August 31st. 
All block releases happen on the first day of each month. They can be conveniently found on our Cackling Stitches Facebook page HERE.
 They will be pinned under the "Featured" tab to make them easy to locate.

On the first day of each month, we release a block pattern (sometimes it's more than one)
 that is free for the entire calendar month. After that, those blocks go into our individual 
ETSY shops where you can purchase them for $2 each. 
If you just can't wait, the entire pattern can be purchased in my ETSY shop for $15.

We hope you appreciate the time we put into creating this BOM and understand that we keep
 the costs to a minimum for you. We ask that you respect our copyrights and do not share the 
pattern with others. You're welcome to direct your friends to our Cackling Stitches Group 
Facebook or any of our ETSY shops so they can get their own patterns.

You can choose to make the entire quilt, or just a wall hanging, the choice is yours! Either way, you will be able to collect many different "Sweaters" throughout the BOM, for your sweet skeleton.  If you are making your sweaters like paper doll clothes, just fuse the sweaters onto a piece of felt. If you have ever wanted to become a designer, give it a try and design and share a sweater with us. We can't wait to see what you dream up. 

 til next time...
Keep on Stitchin'
