I’ve very excited to share my block for Vol. 14, Bettie’s Bikini (pg. 22)!

bettie-page-2

This block was inspired by pin-up model Bettie Page after I read that she made all of her own swimwear and lingerie.

While not a replica of any specific suit, this bitty bikini made in reproduction fabrics reminds me of Bettie’s signature style!

Just like all of my patterns, Bettie’s Bikini was designed in EQ7.

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

Free Pattern Day is the first of every month during 2016!

A Winner (updated)!

100 Blocks Vol 13

I had a lovely response to my post for Quiltmaker’s 100 Blocks, Vol 13 Blog Tour!

A very special thanks to each and every person that commented for a chance to win a free copy of this issue from Quiltmaker. There were lots of great comments, but only one winner!

EDITED TO ADD: My first winner, Diane S., was the lucky winner of two drawings. Each person can only win one magazine, so I had the fun opportunity to choose another winner.

Paddlin by Jennifer Ofenstein

And here we are: You’ll find Paddlin’ on page 20 of Vol. 13!

twitterpated with embroidery

These birds were inspired by a design I created some years ago, but never published. It wasn’t quite right, but I loved the birds! If you look closely, you’ll see the “Momma” bird from Paddlin’ is sitting on the ground, while the “babies” are up on the line.

Just for fun, I put together a small quilt idea using four blocks,, two of which are in mirror image. I just love the wreath-inside-a-window effect!

Just like all of my patterns, Paddlin’ was designed in EQ7.

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

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.

Introducing Sandbox Sisters! These two little gals are inspired by two of my friends, Amber & Jewells. Love ya, ladies!

You can find the Sisters hanging out on the top left side of page 25.

Sandbox Sisters

If these girls remind you of Sunbonnet Sue, that’s because she’s one of my absolute favorites to design! I love her so much, she and her friends have an entire page right here on Sewhooked.

I used Kona cotton for the background and lots of fun scraps for the rest. I just love how their little shovels and sandals turned out!

See more Sunbonnet Sue!

Just like all of my patterns, this block was designed in EQ.
