BBD AotH Question

Last night I was looking over the new charts I received for the Blackbird Designs Anniversarys of the Heart series.  Since I'm just starting out - a little behind the curve, as usual, I admit - I noticed that they have a layout for if you're stitching them all on one big piece of fabric.  AND that there are two boxes marked BONUS.

The first BONUS appears between February and March and the other one at the end of all twelve.  So I looked in my February booklet and then in my March booklet and there was no BONUS material.

So my question is - does anyone know anything about the BONUS material?  Has the first one come out?  Are they supposed to come out at the end of the series?  Are you supposed to leave a big blank between February/March to accept the BONUS when it comes out and if so, what size?

I'm going to look on the BBD Blog and see if anything is mentioned about this BONUS, but thought in the meantime some of my readers Siobhan Vonna Siobhan Vonna (read as subliminal messaging) might be able to enlighten me?


  1. The bonus between Feb & March was released with the July house. The big bonus should be released in Oct.

  2. Yep, what Rachel said! The July house has the bonus piece--an alphabet. The big bonus comes out in October... I thought I'd read that it'd be in book form, with the last three houses. I could be wrong, though!

  3. The bonus is as Siobhan said. I have recieved it and stitched it. I really love it. Go to my blog and check it out.

  4. I want to stitch this one up too! Haven't gotten around to it, so I'm just as behind as you are. lol! Definitely check around the blogs -- you'll see the blank space left for the first bonus chart if you do. Love your BBD mystery finish btw!

  5. Hello Katherine, I am also learning about the Anniversaries of the Heart, so the answers to your post help me too !! Thanks ! I am so behind that I haven't even start stitching it yet. Enjoy yours !!
