Words To Grow By Block Of The Month - LEAD

It's been a tough six months for everyone, including the four of designers of the "Words To Grow By" block of the month (BOM.) The block designers, Amy from Sew Incredibly CrazyCarla from Creatin' in the SticksJoan from Moosestash Quilting, and me, Carol from Just Let Me Quilt do everything we can to keep up with the BOM in spite of chaos and life events for each of us. 


We finally decided we needed to take a break so we could regroup and catch up with our lives. We posted this on the Facebook page for Sew Incredibly Crazy Block of the Month:

"Due to unforeseen events, we have decided to take a break from the block of the months until next year. Just to be clear, we ARE NOT leaving you hanging with an unfinished project! We love our followers too much to do that.

Beginning Monday and through the end of August, each designer will release the remaining blocks, including the stars, and measurements for the border. They will be free through September for downloading, so be sure to grab them as they post on this page.

We have loved our time with you and will leave this Facebook page open so you can ask questions and show us your finished blocks and quilts. Thank you for your understanding!"


To start the early block releasing, I shared a block today, "LEAD", and think that is a pretty awesome word right now. 

I love this quote: 

“You don’t lead by hitting people over the head – that’s assault, not leadership.” 
~ President Dwight Eisenhower

You can find "LEAD" for free HERE.

We all love using EZ Print Lite Sheets by ThermOWeb...no tracing!
Just print in your inkjet printer and your designs are ready.

Thank you Carol for the cute block. The quote just fits in these trying times also. I really appreciate all that you ladies have done for us.. It gave me something to look forward to and get our minds on something besides all that has been going on. I really appreciate all of you.

Ooops, missed this one, too. Where have I been? I love your chicken block. Thank you for making all of them so easy to find.

I love the Eisenhower quotation. He's the first president I remember personally, and I think he was a great man. He had his soldiers take photos of everything found at the Nazi camps because he said in 50 years people would say it never happened, and he wanted it well documented. That was prophetic!

He started the Interstate system to speed up getting things from one place to another. There are so many things he did, and I think history doesn't remember much of him - not enough, anyway! This quote is just perfect for our times! Thank you!
