Tomorrow, Tomorrow, Tomorrow!

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

Tomorrow is the very first day of My Favorite Things, my Block of the Month (BOM) to be hosted right here on Sewhooked!

My Favorite Things includes 12 brand new patterns to paper piece in both 6″ and 12″, as well as a number of 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!

On the first day of each month, you can download that month’s pattern for free from 8am CST on the 1st to 8am CST on the 2nd.  After the first day, each pattern will be available for a $2 from my Craftsy Pattern Shop. The the entire block set will available for sale by December.

FABRIC AMOUNTS (this info is in the pattern)

  • Background Fabric for 12” blocks only = 3 ½ yards
  • Background Fabric for 6” blocks only = 1 ¼ yards.
  • Small amounts of other fabrics needed to complete each block.
  • (yardage includes bonus blocks).
  • Suggested sashing/border amounts will be shared with final (optional!) layouts in December.

NEED PAPER PIECING HELP? I have a page for that!

Every pattern for this BOM has been tested by both myself and Amber Lowery, friend and awesomesauce pattern tester!
