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.

#FavThings Free Pattern Day is the first of each month in 2016.

My Favorite Things – May

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

Welcome back to Sewhooked for the May 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 very much hope that you will find some of your favorite things in the mix.

***IMPORTANT INFO ABOUT HOW THIS BOM WORKS***

The first day of each month in 2016 is FREE PATTERN DAY. 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. Bonus blocks will be included at no additional cost every three months.

*Please note that you will need to save or print on Free Pattern Day . The free pattern link will expire after 24 hours.

05 May Favorite Things

♥ ♥ ♥ GET THE MAY PATTERN ♥ ♥ ♥

Since I was a kiddo, crayons have been one of my absolute favorite things. I still keep a box on my desk and they do come in handy!

Signature Quilt Invite:

If you’ve played along with me before, then you know that I ADORE signature quilts and always invite event participants to share a signature block to be included in a special keepsake that I keep.

You are very sweetly invited to make a Signature Block for the My Favorite Things Signature Quilt!

Choose YOUR favorite 6″ block from My Favorite Things & make it with the fabrics of your choice. Add your name and location. Names can be hand or machine embroidered, added with fabric paint or pen. Please, no iron-on transfers.

This is not required, but it is much appreciated!

6” blocks are due January 31, 2017. This will give you plenty of time to pick your favorite block! Don’t worry, I’ll share lots of reminders along the way.

Curly Swirly Butterfly!

Curly Swirly Butterfly

Curly Swirly Butterfly is now available for just $2.95 in my Craftsy Shop.

I drew Curly Swirly Butterfly a couple of weeks back when I was sick and didn’t feel like doing much but doodle. In this case, my doodle turned into something so fun, that I even made it available as a t-shirt and bought myself one, too!

This fun pattern can be backstitched, stem stitched, or finished using your favorite embroidery stitch.

GREAT BIG THANKS to Robin & Rainey for stitching this sweet design up for me. (Click the links to check them out on Instagram!)
