A special thank you to everyone that has shared well wishes for my surgery & recovery. I hope to see you next week!

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

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

My Favorite Things – June

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

Welcome back to Sewhooked for the June 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.

06 June both

♥ ♥ ♥ GET THE JUNE PATTERN ♥ ♥ ♥

Because this is the 6th month, we have a bonus pattern in addition to our regularly scheduled My Favorite Things block!

Crochet

Crochet was one of my very first hand crafts. While I’m not much of a knitter (okay, not at all!), some of my favorite people knit, including my daughter, making knitting needles the obvious bonus block to the crochet hook.

Whether you make one or both, I hope you enjoy today’s patterns!

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.
