The third block for Maggie’s First Dance Free Block of the Month was sent out a short time ago. If you are signed up, please check your email for your pattern. (Please note- sometimes it can several hours for the email to reach your inbox. If you don’t have it yet, please be patient and check back a little later.)
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 It may take us a little while to get back to you, but we will do our best to answer as soon as possible. PLEASE do not comment here to tell us that you can’t find your email – your comment will be deleted! Please email for assistance. Thank you!!
For technical questions, like how to download/save a PDF, etc. please visit our Frequently Asked Questions page.
If you are NOT signed up yet, please fill in the box in the upper right side bar of THIS PAGE to get your FREE block patterns! NOTE – THE PATTERNS ARE NOT ON MY WEBSITE OR BLOG – YOU MUST SIGN UP TO RECEIVE THEM BY EMAIL.
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!!!!
OK- Let’s GO!!!
Read through to the end of this post to find out how you can win a really great prize :)

Can I tell you a little secret? I think this is my favorite block for this quilt. But don’t tell the other blocks, I don’t want them to get jealous…..
Lots of people tell me that their favorite part of the Block of the Month is seeing all of the different fabrics people choose- and I agree! Amazing how different a block can look with different fabrics! Please show us your blocks!! You have lots of ways to “show-off”!!
