If you can’t find your email, please check your spam folder, and Gmail users please check your “Promotions” folder. If you still can’t find it, please email me comments@JacquelynneSteves.com We do our best to answer as soon as possible.

Just ONE MORE THING- Please download and save the files to your computer immediately, so that you can find them when you need them. Don’t rely on trying to find the email with the links later- As many have found, emails tend to get lost, even when you put them in a special folder :) As this event grows larger with more and more participants, it gets more difficult for me to reply to emails requesting that I re-send the patterns. THANKS SOOOOOO MUCH!!!!
Let’s get this party started!
The second block features this cute little tulip flower. This is the Cottage colorway, with a machine appliqued flower:
For the block piecing, we are doing Half SQUARE Triangles (HST’s), which we do quite often in quilting. Don’t let this intimidate you, it’s actually pretty fun!! I’ve created a tutorial and cheat sheet to walk you through it- I think you will find this super helpful!! Click HERE for the HST tutorial.
Members of The Art of Home Club also have the option of making bug blocks with exclusive Members Only patterns! Click here to learn more about The Art of Home Club! This block is an example of the Desert colorway.
**PS- We still have a FEW fabric kits available! Get yours now before they are sold out! You can choose from the Cottage or Desert Colorway!! Click here!
We LOVE seeing your blocks! Our Sew Quilty Friends Facebook group has been super active this year- I think we’ve got at least 200 different block photos there (and counting!!!) (You will notice some ladybug designs, they are from The Art of Home Club BONUS designs as mentioned above.) Here is a collage of some of them:
