I’m excited to announce a new Free Block of the Month, Maggie’s First Dance, starting in June and that I’m going to be a featured blogger!
There are several options for making this quilt; applique, embroidery, or a focus fabric in the center of the blocks. And the best thing, Jacquelynne’s directions are sooo easy to follow.
As a featured blogger, I’m going to make the embroidered version using the Bright Sun collection by Sherri and Chelsi for Moda. Here, I’m playing with the border layout to see what fabrics I needed to add to my collection which includes a layer cake, charm pack, a fat eighth bundle and some yardage of a few of the prints. I did have to add some fabrics, but who doesn’t love buying new fabric?!?
If you remember, I won Jacquelynne’s on-line contest last year for Cozy Afternoon and my prize was the kit for this year’s Free BOM. I can’t wait to receive it! I also plan on doing the applique version with the kit. Jacquelynne will have the kit available soon in her on-line store. When you sign up for the Free BOM, you’ll have the chance to purchase the kit at a special introductory price!
I can’t wait to get started. You’ll be able to see my finished first block on June 6th. Check out Jacquelynne’s sign up page for all the details. There will be blog hops, prizes and a Sew Along Day. I hope you sign up and join the fun. Thanks for stopping by.
