Sign up for the FREE 2017 Block of the Month – I Love Home!

It’s here! It’s here!! Introducing our Free Block of the Month for 2017:

I Love Home!!

Our last block of the Month, Maggie’s First Dance, was sooooo much fun, I hope you will enjoy this one, too!

The I Love Home Free BOM will have 4 different blocks, and it will start in August and run through December. 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 4 blocks and to add borders to make this quilt (finished size 54 x 68″):

Even if you were on the Maggie’s First Dance BOM list, or if you are on my Newsletter list, you must sign up for I Love Home 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 above! (Purchase of kit is optional, and not required to participate in the free bom.) 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! KITS NOW AVAILABLE! CLICK HERE!  SORRY- KITS ARE NOW SOLD OUT. LABELS BELOW ARE STILL AVAILABLE.

Coordinating quilt labels also available here.

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 #ILoveHomeQuilt 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…

    Since I love three dimensional quilts, I would finish the house with embroidery.
    Such a fun event!
