Jacquelynne Steves is releasing her pattern for the second block today, and to celebrate, I'm having another giveaway! But more on that later.
Here is Block #2 pieced in the fabrics I chose, Soho Chic. Winter has decended upon us and we've been dealing with snow and poor weather, and so I apologize for the low light in this photo. It really looks so much better in person!
I have chosen to leave the center blank rather than embroider inside. One I get all six blocks constructed and pieced together, I'm going to come up with a nice free motion quilting design inside. I have no idea what that will be just yet, but I still have time to think about it.
Here is how Block 1 and 2 look together. Pretty sharp when they are put together, eh?
And if you'd like to hop on board this BOM - did I mention it's FREE? - it's not too late. We're just starting with the second block. You have options to do four or six blocks - whatever you have time for. When you sign up you'll receive a welcome email from Jacquelynne with the previous month's pattern, so you can still participate, and even forward/share the patterns with your friends.
Hmmm....can't forget about the giveaway!
The winner of this giveaway will receive the Wool Snowflake Penny Rug Pattern and Grandma's Pantry Quilt Pattern. International entries are welcome as these patterns are downloaded as pdf files. Awesome, right?
There are two ways to enter:
1. Leave a comment and let me know if you take time to make some type of Christmas decoration for yourself in December, or if you are too busy making gifts for everyone else.
2. For a second entry, let me know if you follow along on my Facebook page, Instagram, or my Blog. I love reading other quilters' blogs, and I'd hope you might like to follow me along as well!
Most importantly, make certain I have a way to contact you if Mr. Random draws your name. Leave me your email address in the comment, or make certain you are NOT a No-Reply Blogger. I was astounded at how many comments last month were from no-reply bloggers, which doesn't give me any way to reply to you or contact you should you win!
The contest is open through midnight Mountain Time on Sunday, November 30. And for a chance to look at what the other guest bloggers have made for Block 2, I've included links to their blogs below. They're having giveaways, too! Can you believe how many 'Barb's' are in the list? And two Sandy/Sandie's.
Teresa ~ A Quilt and a Prayer
Sandy ~ Upstairs Hobby Room
Barb ~ Bejeweled Quilts
Sandie ~ Crazy ‘Bout Quilts
Deanna ~ Wedding Dress Blue
Barb ~ Mountain Quiltworks - this one is me!
Barb ~ Garden Path Quilts
Good luck, and I can't wait to see your blocks.
Quilting with a smile,
