Sew Sweet Simplicity!!!
...... And I'm just tickled pink to be a featured blogger for this fun event!!!!
Come along, and let's have some fun making these oh-so-cute blocks!
The BOM will run for 5 months - you will receive 1-2 blocks per month (total of 6 blocks) for 4 months, then you will receive instructions for the borders and finishing on the 5th month. And don't let the look of these blocks fool you - they may look complicated, but they're simply made up of squares, half-square triangles, and flying geese!!! They're not named "Simplicity" blocks for nothing :)
And listen up.... We have OPTIONS!!! Yep, we can make this quilt as simple or as fancy as we like! Jacquelynne will provide the option of making a 4- or 6-block quilt! And she is adding some lovely applique details for those of us who think no quilt is complete without an applique or two .... even some really cute embroidery designs for the hand stitchers among us! (There will also be video tutorials to help any newbies out there!) Or, you can choose to just make the pieced blocks only ..... the choice is yours! Isn't it nice to have choices?
Of course, there will be lots of prizes and giveaways! Starting today! Jacquelynne is offering this AMAZING PDF Pattern Bundle with a retail value of $40 to one lucky winner on my blog!
All you need to do is leave a comment on this post - and be sure you leave me a valid email address to contact you if you are the winner. The Giveaway will run until midnight October 23 (Central time). Because it is a PDF download, it is open to all US and International readers! Yes, that means YOU!!!!
There are quite a few other featured bloggers who are joining in to share their blocks and give you inspiration as we go along, so be sure to get the schedule on The Art of Home blog so you can see what each blogger is doing. Jacquelynne is doing the sample blocks in her lovely Cottage Charm fabric line - and I gotta say, it's really hard to beat that!
As you know, I'm a COLOR GIRL and I like to be different (no snickering now - be nice!) - so I've chosen to use my bright solid scraps on a black background - BIG surprise, right? =^..^=

What I haven't decided for sure yet is whether I will include applique or embroidery - but I'm leaning toward a little of both maybe. I think they will add a unique element to these sampler blocks - and I really love some of the sneak peeks Jacquelynne has shown of her designs!
