Sew Sweet Simplicity Free Block of the Month- this is it!!

Alfie_SewSweetSimplicityFreeBOM-JacquelynneSteves

Sew Sweet Simplicity Free Block of the Month-  this is it!! Can you believe it?? We have been working together on this project for about 4 months, and today I am sending out the instructions for the borders- remember, you can make a 4 block quilt, or a 6 block quilt. If you have fallen behind, read to the bottom of this post for a very big announcement which will SURELY motivate you to finish your project!!! AND I’ve got some great giveaways this month, so read on…

Another thing that I must mention before we really get started- the links to all of the patterns will be de-activated in about a month. PLEASE download and/or print out the patterns for safe keeping- I will not send out replacements later. Today’s mailing contains ALL OF THE LINKS- so even if you’ve misplaced your other emails, your current email has all of the information that you need. If you need help in printing or downloading the patterns to your computer, please check the FAQ page for tips. This also means that if you have friends who would like this BOM, please tell them about it now so they can sign up. PLEASE DO NOT SHARE THE PATTERNS WITH THOSE WHO HAVE NOT SIGNED UP. I’ve put so much work into creating this event, and it’s not fair to share it with those who did not sign up. The patterns will be available at a later date for purchase. Thanks for your understanding!! And now… on with the fun!!!

(Note- there’s been some confusion as to the number of blocks for this BOM. If you are doing the 4 Block quilt, you will use blocks #1-4. For the 6 Block quilt, you will use Blocks #1-4, plus Bonus Block #1 and Bonus Block #2- for a total of 6 blocks.)

I did 2 versions of the BOM quilt- one with applique and my Cottage Charm fabric line, and the other with embroidery and various Moda lines. First the appliqued version:

(and before you all start asking- I got the pillow at Ikea a couple of years ago…)

Here are some closeups of the quilting that my long-arm quilter did (thanks, Danny!!):

After you’ve quilted it, you may choose to add some button embellishments- obviously you wouldn’t do this if the quilt is for a small child. But I think it’s kind of cute to do something like this:

ButtonEmbellishment-SewSweetSimplicityBlockoftheMonth-Jacquelynne_Steves

And here is the embroidered version (which Alfie is “modelling” in the top photo). For this one, I did an on-point setting:

EmbroideredSewSweetSimplicityQuilt_JacquelynneSteves

I happen to love square quilts- I guess it’s the symmetry that I like. I think people don’t know what to do with a square quilt, other than using it for a wall hanging or table topper. I really like putting them on the bed on a bias, I think it’s really pretty:

SewSweetSimplicityFreeBOM-embroideredquilt-JacquelynneSteves

For a great way to display your quilts, paint your walls a neutral color (mine are gray) and put a white bedspread on the bed- then you can add any size, shape, or color quilt:

And what about the fabulous quilting that Danny did on this one! I love it:

    I’ve met several musicians, but the most important to me was Dan Smith and his band mates Woody, Chris, and Kyle. They were all lovely and when I asked each of them to autograph my shirt Woody asked if I was sure, b/c he didn’t “want to mess it up!” lol I don’t think their success has really sunk in yet lol.
    Thanks so much for doing this, all your work on this is greatly appreciated & your generosity too. I especially appreciate how you spent the time doing models of what the different colors would look like. I didn’t realize you were a fabric designer at first, now I have to look for the Cottage Charm line!
    I have a question. For the competition is it ok if we change things a little bit? For example, I haven’t decided if I’ll do applique or embroidery. I really like the multi flower block and the daisy, what if I just did those 3x each? Or if I used my accuquilt for some of the flower blocks, or did a mix of your embroidery and appliques? Thanks for your help & for doing this for us!

    The closest I’ve come to meeting a celebrity of the quilting world was when the local guild hosted a few ladies from the staff of Little Quilts to give a presentation on historic themed quilts. Very interesting and lovely quilts, too! Thanks for the free quilt blocks and for a chance to win some great prizes!

    Oh I forgot! Danny’s quilting is incredible! Does he have a blog/website where we could contact him/look at samples of his work?
    And Alfie is a great model! Pets and kids are the best quilt models. My bunnies and kitty like to “help” me quilt by sitting on the fabric or blocks I need. My cat Daisy walks in front of the sewing machine so she can purr & rub her tail across my face! :-D I go from watching the needle to looking at kitty bum in my face lol

    No quilt celebrities but hope to start attending the big quilt shows.

    Back in the 70’s my husband worked to bring entertainment to the troops at Fort Polk, so I met lots of Country Western Singers and stars.

    HUMMMM Celebrities! I met a Bunch of Quilt Celebrities at the 2013 Quiltmaker Block Party. I was in Name Dropper Heaven. Bonnie Hunter, Debbie Caffery, Jo Morton just to name a few. Last year I met Lori Holt, Deon Stott, Natalia Bonner, and her McCall’s Design Star 2011 winning Mother; Kathleen Whiting. I also have met Eleanor Burns, Marti Michell, Kaye Wood, Jennifer Chiaverini, Alex Anderson and Ricky Tims! I’m looking forward to meeting Mark Lipinski next month. YES, I love meeting these people. Almost as much as spending time quilting. I was just one table away from shaking Donny Osmond’s hand in Vegas, too. does that count? Thanks for the Give-Away!

    My mom and I met John Wayne when he was here in Houston filming the Hellfighters movie, back in the late 60’s … but I was just 7 and didn’t see what the big deal was ! She said she nearly fainted !!
    I’ve met some sports celebrities, some of the Houston Astros, Nolan Ryan and Craig Biggio and others; several of the Houston Texans too, JJ Watt (what a guy!), Andre Johnson (no better human being on the planet!) and several others.
    Thanks for the great giveaway !

    The most valuable celebrities I have met..are my 7 quilting friends in my quilting group. I need say no more..and the most recent is you, Jacquelynne Stevens… for all your inspiration. Thank you. Anne Grinley.

    Hi Jacquelinne! I am a wanna-be quilter. I have set up a spare room for sewing and have been buying essentials over the past year. I just turned 60 and although I haven’t actually made anything yet but plan to very soon. I am so excited to begin my projects.
    I met a celebrity from a TV show called The Forest Rangers. He was friends with my cousin and we happened to be over at my Aunts one day and my cousin comes in with him and introduces him to everyone. I was about 12 years old at the time and it happened to be my favorite TV show at the time. This was back in the 1960’s when it was all the rage to send away for signed photo of a celebrity.
    Thanks for all the lovely patterns and I really hope I win this BOM.

  • Posted February 23, 2015 at 12:20 pm | Permalink

    I’ve met quite a few quilting authors/designers and Eleanor Burns tops that list. As for actors, we were dining in a restaurant with Kenny Rogers one time, but he was not friendly–wouldn’t even smile our way. I love your quilts!!

    This BOM has been so much fun Jacquelynne – thanks for such a wonderful design! I have met a few quilting celebrities, of course …. Bonnie Hunter, Jenny Doan, Eleanor Burns, and quite a few more. As for Hollywood-type celebrities, not really. Gomer Pyle was shooting on location in Washington DC when I visitied there with my grandmother when I was 12 – does that count?

  • Posted February 23, 2015 at 1:03 pm | Permalink

    I’ve met Liam Clancy of the Clancy Brothers & Tommy Makem fame (Irish folk group). He was chatting with the actor R.G. Armstrong. I’ve met Laura Numeroff, author of If You Give A Mouse A Cookie, I met a couple of local newscasters. I’ve seen Orville Redenbacher, he used to go to my doctor. I’ve emailed back and forth with a few writers, authors of well respected dog training books. (In fact I’ve been quoted in a couple of dog magazines.)

    I grew up some of my life in Apple Valley California. Which is next to Hesperia. Anyway my mom would go and get her hair done at the beauty shop. One day she ran into Dale Evans there. One thing let to another and soon we became acaintances with Dale Evans, Roy Rogers and all their children. Turns out my mom and Dale had a lot in common. This was really cool.

    First I wanted to tell you how fun it is to see how a block can look so differently when made by different people based on their fabric choices. About the celebrity, I’ll go back to the first celebrity I met. I was a kid in the 70s and met Bob Denver. I thought it was cool because I watched reruns of Gilligan’s Island after school. I think somewhere I have his autograph.

    Have I met celebrities? Yep, lots. Eleanor Burns (I sew with her often), Alex Anderson, Ricky Tims, John Flynn, Jenny Doan, Mark Lipenski, Marianne Fons plus several other Quilting celebrities. Burt Reynolds, Brue Dern, Ben Johnson (shortly before he won Best Supporting Actor Oscar), Andrew Prine (asked me out, wow, that was sooo long ago), George Gobbels, Scott Baio, Roy Rogers plus I’ve seen several others but didn’t ‘meet’ them. Bet most of you don’t know who some of these are!

Besides Mark Lipinski (he came into a friends’ fabric store while I was there, and I recognized him) and Alex Veroneli, Mark Dunn, Victoria Findlay Wolfe, Patricia Knoechel, Marie Bostwick, Jennifer Chiaverini, and other famous quilters, I had a conversation with Morgan Fairchild when I was in high school. She and members of the Search For Tomorrow cast came to our play’s cast party. I’m sort of related (my aunt’s husband’s cousin) to Vince Lombardi, and he was at a party when I was little. And I’ve met Minnie Mouse. lol. Thanks again for the design!

    I went to school with Fergie from Black Eyed Peas since 5th grade. She was a child star then so we were kinda intimidated/in awe of her. We rode the bus together in elem (it was the short bus too LOL!)

    There has been one actor that has been my absolute favorite for the past 30 years. I thought I’d never get to meet him but then they announced he was doing a meet and greet at Mall of America which is 40 minutes from my house. I took a PTO day from work, waited 6 hours in line and finally got to meet…Arnold Schwarzenegger!

    I worked in the entertainment industry so have met several celebrities. When I was working in the theater I meet Tom Cruise, Tom Hanks and such. I think Butterfly McQueen from Gone With The Wind was a favorite. She was the sweetest little lady and she sounded exactly like she did in the movie. While working in the country music industry I meet everyone from George Strait to Reba McEntire to Kenny Rogers to The Oak Ridge Boys, etc. The thing I learned is that they are all just people. Most of them are nice and some no so much.

    Yes, I have met celebrities. It seems to me that most of the established, well known celebrities are cordial, understanding the price of fame and all that goes with it. On the other hand, some of the newbies appear to be a bit of a handful and can be quite full of themselves. Not all of them, but some of them, definitely. I do wish the newbies would learn that a little humility goes a long way… SENOJDLANOR (at) yahoo (dot) com

She is entertaining when she speaks to a crowd, but talking to her one-on-one is absolutely fascinating. I only wished we had more time to talk either alone or in a group.

My Dad lived next to her for a few years in CA, and she often asked him to fix things for her, as he was a man who could fix absolutely everything (sweet memory of my Dad). The day we fixed a wooden bi-fold door for her (which simply required trimming off the bottom of the door so it would open freely across the carpet), she called Dad to thank him & asked if he would come over for a glass of wine. What a classy and down-to-earth lady!
