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.

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!
