TTMT #355 – Birthdays & Surprises (and a free pattern)

Today, I share some gifts made for the hubster as well as hinting at some secrets in progress and talking about an upcoming DIY project.

Cross My Hearts

In honor of the memory of my mother-in-law, Carol, who we lost one year ago today, I please enjoy my pattern, Cross My Hearts (previously $2.95) for free. ♥

This block is 6″ paper pieced (6 1/2″ unfinished).

Want a different size? I have a tutorial for that. :)

My Favorite Things. a Block of the Month by Jennifer Ofenstein

Welcome to the second installment of My Favorite Things, my 2016 Block of the Month!

My Favorite Things includes 12 brand new patterns to paper piece in both 6″ and 12″, as well as a FOUR BONUS BLOCKS to mix and match your own favorites!

These patterns are MY Favorite Things, but I hope you will find some of your favorites along the way, too.

At that time, you can download* the monthly BOM pattern for free from 8am CST on the 1st to 8am CST on the 2nd (i.e. 1/1/16 – 1/2/16).  After that time, each pattern will be available for $2 from my Craftsy Pattern Shop.
