Sign up for the 2016 Free Block of the Month!

SORRY- THIS EVENT IS NOW OVER. You can sign up in the box below for my email list, so you find out all about our next Free Block of the Month (coming soon)!

[mc4wp_form id=”6640″]

It’s here! It’s here!! Introducing our Free Block of the Month for 2016:

Maggie’s First Dance!!


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

The Maggie’s First Dance Free BOM will have 5 different blocks, and it will start in June and run through November. 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)


You will get my easy-to-follow step by step instructions, with lots of diagrams, to make all 5 blocks and to add borders to make this quilt (finished size 53″ square):


Are you just chomping at the bit to get your hands on these FREE patterns?

You must subscribe to receive the patterns by email!

Even if you were on the Cozy Afternoon BOM list, or if you are on the Free Emagazine/Newsletter list, you must sign up for Maggie’s First Dance separately- you will not automatically receive the BOM pattern in the regular newsletter mailing.


And, I WILL have kits available to make the quilt shown below! I will be announcing those in the next week or so, 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! We will also have coordinating quilt labels and note cards!   KITS AVAILABLE NOW- CLICK HERE. SORRY- KITS SOLD OUT!!


And yes, we will have blog hops, prizes, Sew Along Day, and more fun! Don’t miss it!

Remember, you MUST sign up using the form above, or fill in the box in the upper right side bar of this page.

Won’t you please help me get the word out about this fun event?

Please share on your blog, Facebook, Instagram, Pinterest, or perhaps email this post to a friend who would like to join us (there are handy-dandy sharing buttons right underneath my signature)!!! I also hope that you will share photos of your projects as we sew-along together. I can’t wait to see your blocks and finished projects! Please use the hashtag #MaggieQuilt when you share your photos on social media- this way, we can all find each other’s photos and follow along!

Below, you will also find buttons which you can post to your social media and install on your blog side bar.

Please right click on the images below, and save to your computer. Then you can use them in blog posts, in your blog side bar, and post to social media such as Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram. And of course, you can pin them to Pinterest…

The name of this BOM is Maggie’s First Dance because the colors kind of remind me of a vintage farmhouse, maybe somewhere with a big old red barn, perfect for holding square dances. I imagined my grandmother, named Margaret, going to these dances with her sisters and her “beau”- of course, that would be my grandfather!

    Hi Jacquelynne! I have the “Cozy” Blocks copied but did not get the material for them…too much going on to work on it this past year, but want to get the material from you for this new quilt and get this one done. Looking forward to it! Will also pass on the word to my quilting friends for you. :-)

    Thank you for all your work and caring in offering us another BOM (with a kit option) and free too! I’m looking forward to the kit offering because it will be easier for me to keep up not having to make so many decisions of what fabrics to use. Your site is great.

    I tried to put your badge on my sidebar and it would only give me text.
    Are you going to have a live badge that can be clicked on and pulled directly to this page? I have no problem with those working.
