Block of the Month

Not one, but TWO choices for the 2013 Block of the month!  Each month, we will be doing three blocks from Hobo Quilts.  Due to copyright restrictions, we can’t post the directions..  For those of you who would rather not be hobos, an alternate block will be posted every month too.  Thank you Rosy and Debbie!
