It’s here! It’s here!! Introducing our Free Block of the Month for 2015:

Cozy Afternoon!!


Our last block of the Month, Sew Sweet Simplicity,  was sooooo much fun, I hope you will enjoy this one, too!

The Cozy Afternoon Free BOM will have 5 blocks, and it will start in June and run through October. Once again, you will have the following options for making your blocks:

  • *you can just piece them
  • *OR you can applique them (hand or machine- I did machine applique)
  • *OR you can do simple hand embroidery (just 2 super easy stitches- the backstitch and French knots- plus I have a YouTube tutorial for those stitches)

I’ve made 3 samples for this, using all 3 methods above, and they all look beautiful!


You will get my easy-to-follow step by step instructions, with lots of diagrams, to make all 5 blocks and to add sashing and borders to make this quilt (finished size 66″ square):


And, I WILL have kits available to make the quilt shown above! I will  be announcing those next week, with a special introductory price (I just love a sale, don’t you??) Last time, the kits sold out quickly, so be sure to stop back next week to find out how you can pre-order your kit!

Teacups, teapots, butterflies, flowers- these are a few of my favorite things! When I was designing this in my EQ program, I was thinking about relaxing afternoons, curled up with a cup of my favorite beverage, reading a book, doing some stitching, or watching a favorite Jane Austen movie… what’s your idea of a cozy afternoon??
