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

Welcome back to Sewhooked for the November installment of My Favorite Things, my 2016 Block of the Month!

My Favorite Things includes 12 original 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 month’s 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 @8am CST on the 2nd of the month.

♥ ♥ ♥ GET THE NOVEMBER PATTERN ♥ ♥ ♥

I have a love-hate relationship with the awesome swiftness of finishing a project with hot melt glue and the inevitable burned fingers and dripped glue strings!

Halloween 2010
My finger burning greatest glue gun project to date was a Halloween costume that consumed almost 100 sticks of glue! This is my son (way back in 2009!) as a character from the Red vs. Blue series. The costume pieces are foam, plastic, paint, and glue! It gave my mini-glue gun the workout of it’s life!

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.
