Sew Sweet Simplicity Free Block of the Month Block 2 has arrived! If you are signed up for the BOM, you should have gotten an email (yesterday or today) with the block pattern. If you have not received your block pattern yet- please check this “Frequently Asked Questions” page for tips on “finding” and reading your email and pattern. Then, if none of those tips work, please email me. Do not leave a comment here to tell me that you have not received your block– you will get a faster response if you email. Also, please, use the FAQ page first before emailing- unfortunately, I am receiving many emails from people who can’t find their emails, and it’s getting difficult for me to answer each one. THANK YOU!!!

And now… on to the fun!!! (Read to the bottom of the post to find out about the giveaway…)

Lots of you have posted photos of your Block #1 on Facebook, Pinterest, and Instagram- you guys have come up with so many creative ways to make this block! People have used very different colorways, novelty fabrics, and even machine embroidery.

Block #2 will follow the same “formula” as Block #1, with HST’s and some flying geese. (By the time we get done with these blocks, you will be pros!!)

Here is my appliqued block #2, after it was quilted:

And here is my embroidered block, after quilting (same exact block, done with different fabrics and embroidery instead of applique):

Lots of you have been telling me that you are doing this BOM with your friends, quilt group, sister… I love hearing that! If you know someone who hasn’t signed up yet, there is still time. When you sign up, you will receive an email with the links for all of the previous blocks.

On Monday, December 22, Block #3 AND Bonus Block #1 will be released. If you are making the 6 block quilt, you will have 2 blocks to work on, and if you are making the 4 block quilt, you will have just 1 block to work on. Also, be sure to check out the blog post for that day- we will have another giveaway! AND- I can’t wait to see what you all make! There are lots of ways for you to share your creations with us-

  • *I have just set up a Pinterest board for this Block of the Month. If you would like to be able to post your BOM photos on this group board, email me for an invitation and I’ll add you to the group board.
  • *Share your progress on social media- Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, Pinterest, Flickr, etc. Use the hashtag #SewSweetSimplicity so we can find your photos. (The hashtag is very important- we won’t be able to find your photos without it.) You can also post them on my Facebook page.

And thanks again to our Blog Hop Sponsors, Aurifil and Henry Glass Fabrics.
