Many of you know that I’ve working on a free BOM (Block of the Month) to be launched this fall (first I was thinking it would launch in October… but now I’m thinking beginning of November.) It will run about 5 months, and the blocks are going to have options for piecing only, hand embroidery, or applique (machine or hand.) So hopefully, there will be something for everyone! I have some bloggers who regularly participate in my blog hops, etc. and I thought- it would be really fun to see some of YOUR blogs. I will be honest- by the time I do my own blog posts, and write patterns, and make samples, and try to keep up with Facebook/Instagram/Pinterest/Twitter… I rarely get a chance to hop around the interwebs looking at blogs just for fun. So I was wondering if maybe you would bring your blogs to me??

I am looking for another blog or 2 to participate in the Block of the Month/Blog Hop- and I hope YOURS is one of them!

Here’s how it will work:

You would get the pattern for all of the blocks about 1-2 months before the BOM is launched, and you can make the blocks with any fabrics you like. It will be fun to see the blocks done in lots of different ways! (Like modern fabrics? Primitive darks? Great!!) As one of my bloggers, you agree to post the photos of your finished block(s) on a designated day each month. The BOM will also act as a blog hop, as I will share your blog with all of my readers when I post my own block- so readers can hop to see other bloggers’ blocks and get inspired! Your blog would also be listed in my mailing for each block (the block photos will be shown here on the blog, but patterns will only be mailed to my Block of the Month subscribers.) You can also post your blocks on your other social media.

Does this sound fun to you? If so, please email me with the following information:

  • *Your blog address
  • *Addresses for any other social media you use (Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Pinterest, etc.) as well as any other groups you belong to (such as Facebook groups, etc.) (Please note- you don’t have to be a social media guru to be chosen- I’d just like to get a sense of your follower demographic- I’m trying to get a good variety amongst the bloggers.)
  • *If chosen, would you be most interest in making the blocks which are pieced only, or include hand embroidery, or include applique (machine or hand is fine.)
  • *A sentence or two telling me about yourself- why you want to be part of the BOM/blog hop, how long you’ve been sewing, your favorite techniques, your kids, your dog, whatever will tell me a little bit about YOU. Doesn’t have to be an autobiography! Just help me get to know you a little.
  • *Please send me your email by August 31.

If you don’t have a blog, but have a friend who does, please send them over! As I said, I will choose 1 or 2 blogs and notify those folks by the first or second week in September.

I can’t wait to visit all of your blogs and see what everyone has been up to!
