WINNER HAS BEEN NOTIFIED
SEE YOU BACK HERE NEXT WEEK WITH THE BLOCKS!
Just to get you really fired up, Jacquelynne is sponsoring a Blog Hop showcasing the many variations being created based on her Sew Sweet Simplicity BOM pattern. Yes, I am one of those lucky people. Yay me!
While I loved the pattern, the color scheme didn’t meet my needs right at the moment. What do you think of these colors instead? I pulled all sorts of dark blue, green, brown and gold fabrics to make a scrappy, masculine quilt. The background is a creamy off-white. I am so excited to see the blocks come together.
You can join us. Just visit the Art of Home to sign up. The first block pattern will be released October 27–you have time. Just sign up and decide: Do you want to make 4 blocks or 6? Or, like me, make a couple of each and create a larger quilt? (We’ll see how that turns out as we go along.) And, there are more fun decisions to make: Do you prefer straight piecing? Applique? Embroidery? Yes, there is a variation just for you.
And giveaways, too. Books, fabric, thread–who doesn’t need more of those?! In fact, let’s have a giveaway RIGHT NOW. Jacquelynne is sponsoring a giveaway of her patterns–which are wonderful. Leave a comment to get your name in the hat for a Digital Pattern Bundle worth $40. I’ll draw the winner Monday, October 20, only a week before this great sew along gets started.
Stop by regularly to see the blog hops scheduled throughout the project to keep you inspired. Everyone is doing something different and interesting.
Great project. Fun times. Plenty to see and do. Sounds SWEET to me!
