My Favorite Things 2016!

My Favorite Things 2016 Block of the Month sewhooked.com

I’ve been teasing the 2016 Sewhooked project for some weeks now and I just can’t wait another day!

Beginning January 1, 2016 and each month for the rest of next year, I will be sharing My Favorite Things!

My Favorite Things will include 12 patterns to paper piece in both 6″ and 12″ as well as a number of bonus blocks to mix and match your own favorites.

On the first day of each month, you’ll have the opportunity to download that month’s pattern for free. After the first day, each pattern will be available for a small fee from my Craftsy Pattern Shop, with the entire block set available for sale by December.

I plan to include instructions for at least one possible layout to create a quilt from your blocks, but knowing me, I will have more than one by the time we get to December!

I hope you’ll join me in 2016 for what I hope will be a super fun event!

Welcome to my post for Quiltmaker’s 100 Blocks, vol. 12 Blog Tour!

I’m extra excited to share today’s patterns because it’s not only one of my favorite things I’ve shared with Quiltmaker, but it’s one of my favorite patterns that I’ve ever designed!

I had such fun creating this block and I hope you love it as much as I do!

Be sure to keep reading to the end to find out how to be entered to win today’s prize!

Special Delivery block by Jennifer Ofenstein, Quiltmaker's 100 Blocks Vol. 12, 2016

Here it is: Special Delivery!

You’ll find this red-wearing fella and his sleigh full of presents on page 19 of Vol. 12.

See more of my Sunbonnet Sue designs.

Special Delivery block by Jennifer Ofenstein, Quiltmaker's 100 Blocks Vol. 12, 2016 To add a to the fun, I embellished my block with hand embroidery (patterns included in the magazine).

Special Delivery block by Jennifer Ofenstein, Quiltmaker's 100 Blocks Vol. 12, 2016

How about a snowflake? Here in Austin, Texas, it’s likely to be the only snow I see this year!

I also had a lot of fun playing with Special Delivery and combining this block with some of my other designs to see what kind of fun quilt layouts I could come up with.

Here are two of my favorites:

Table Runner idea with Special Delivery and On, Dasher! by Jennifer Ofenstein

Here, Special Delivery meets my reindeer block, On, Dasher! for a fun Christmas-themed table runner.

Quilt idea with Special Delivery and On, Dasher! by Jennifer Ofenstein

This layout is a bit more ambitious, with the same number of blocks as the table runner, but with the reindeer set in an arc. I just love this idea! Imagine this with a fun snowflake print fabric or lovely hand embroidered embellishments like oodles of snowflakes and reins for the reindeer team!

On, Dasher! A paper pieced pattern by Jennifer Ofenstein

Like On, Dasher? You can find him in my Craftsy Pattern Shop!

Just like all of my patterns, Special Delivery and the above fun layouts were designed in EQ.

This wonky little haunted house was inspired by a piece of artwork drawn by my son when he was still a little kid.

My little kiddo turns 18 in a couple of months, so that was some time ago!
