My Favorite Things – March

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

Welcome back to Sewhooked for the fourth 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***

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 ‚Äď 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.

It’s lucky March and today I have two more of¬†My Favorite Things¬†to share with you:¬†Scissors & a Rotary Cutter. No quilter’s supplies would be complete¬†without¬†these two beauties cutting tools.

Pattern document includes two Р6″ & 12″ fully color paper pieced patterns as well as sewing order for both blocks.

My scissors and rotary cutters.JPG

Here are¬†(most!) of my favorite cutting tools. I have a few more goodies tucked away in my “to go” sewing kit, including my first ever rotary cutter, a Fiskar gifted to me by my quilter Mom.

I keep a 45mm Olfa for paper and one for fabric, moving my old blade from fabric to paper until it’s given all it’s got! The third cutter is used for specialty blades.

Time for a new #olfa blade! I retire down...old fabric blade becomes paper piecing blade. When that one is shot, it goes in an old powder compact. When it's time to toss, I tape the whole thing closed to (hopefully!) avoid damaging anyone.

Safety Tip: Store old rotary blades in a container. When it’s full, tape it up before disposing.
