New Jacquelynne Steves Block of the Month and a Giveaway!

Are you ready for a quick Block of the Month? The very talented Jacquelynne Steves is hosting an upcoming free Block of the Month starting in June!  You can join the fun by visiting and signing up for Maggie's First Dance  on Jacquelynne's blog! 






I am honored to be one of the bloggers that will be participating in making the monthly blocks with you, sharing my color choices, and maybe give some tips to help make the blocks presented.  This is the perfect way to play without the time commitment of a full year! 

The list of bloggers is so cool, be sure to check them all out and say hello! 




Now for the fun giveaway! 




To get this party started, Jacquelynne will be giving away a Merry Go Round quilt pattern and an Amelia quilt and pillow pattern to a wonderful winner.  

This giveaway will close May 4 and a random winner will be chosen and announced by May 7, 2016.
This wonderful giveaway is open to all of our international friends.  If you are a no reply blogger, please leave your contact information in your comment.  

You have a chance of winning by just leaving a comment on my blog! 

I would love to know...
Have you ever been part of an online Block or the Month or sew along?  If so,  Which one(s)?

I am new to quilting and have downloaded one of Jacqueline's BOM patterns but haven't had a chance yet to try making it.

Bianca Elliott said...

Thank you for asking. Nope, I never have done anything like this. Therefore, I am a bit scared. Bianca

I started the Splendid Sampler. So much to learn.

Yes, am doing the Splendid Sampler sew along, and really enjoying it, though I am a bit behind. Hope to get caught back up soon.

Deborah Whaley said...

I am doing the Gravity BOM.

DebraKay Neiman said...

I love Jacquelynne Steves and I am enrolled in Maggies First Dance patterns. I started with McCalls Almost Amish and the list from there is so long. crystalbluern at tds dot not

Well, this will be my first attempt at quilting, so, no, I've never participated in a BOM before! I'm hoping to finish this one on time!

mgquilts said...

I'm doing Craftsy's 2016 BOM.

BillieBee (billiemick) said...

Oh....I've started many and finished few. Most of the ones I do are the Design Mysteries at the Fat Quarter Shop. They usual provide the most fabrics in case of mistakes...:)

Joyce Carter said...

I am doing the Splendid Sampler. Thank you for the giveaway.

Mary Bornhoeft said...

I came by your site via Jacquelyn's site. I have not taken part of a block of the month on line, but have done a quilt block of the month at our local quilt store. I enjoyed that one and like the pattern offered here..so I am looking forward to doing this one.

Valerie Lloyd said...

I am currently doing the 365 Challenge quilt - a block a day for a year! I am sure I can find time to do a block a month!

Just finishing the online BOM from Crafty Threads here in Tampa and it was a thrill doing the 40 Women of the Bible. Great bunch of ladies

Shari said...

I follow along visually with a few BOM's but haven't made one yet - slogging through my UFO's at the moment. Jacquelynne's looks achievable for someone like me.

Kathryn said...

I participate in the Block Lotto (blocklotto.com) each month.

Jacquelynne's Cozy Afternoon BOM.

Elizabeth S. said...

I am doing the crossroads block of the main nth from fat quarter shop and a mystery block of the month from fig tree.

Carol C Thomas said...

I keep signing up for Block of the Month quilts -- from Crafty to Pat Sloan, etc., and get started but have never, ever finished one. I sure have a lot of patterns printed, saved to storage devices, keep buying fabric, but...no good finishes.

RosieGma said...

Hi I have worked on both of Jacquelynne's other BOM, and I am currently working on the Quilt 48 Project. I love learning new blocks and about other bloggers that are willing to share there love of quilting...

Hi, no I have never participated in a Block of the Month nor a sew along.

I've done a BOM but it took me 2 years to do it! So it wasn't an "along."

Judy1522 said...

I have done several online BOM's the last two being Jacquelynne's Cozy Afternoon and Sew Sweet Simplicity.

Barbara O said...

I'm doing my first online quilt along The Splendid Sampler with Pat Sloan. I'm enjoying the fb group much with everyone sharing their blocks and questions. So much fun!

Donna Kirkland said...

I have not participated previously in a block of the month program. I am recently retired again, (Yep! the first time only lasted 3 months before I freaked out and went back to work.) and I am looking forward to this experience. What appeals is that it is free (which fits right in with my retirement fund) and it is short term. This will give me an opportunity to get my feet wet per say and I will get to meet so many new designers/bloggers along the way. I am looking forward to the social aspects of this program.

Sherry said...

I have done several sew alongs and blocks of the month. I participated in Jacquelynne's Sew Sweet Simplicity BOM and have done the "Sugar Block Club'and a Scrappy Quilt stitch along.

Donna King said...

I've been part of several block of the month and sew alongs, but one of the most recent ones that I really enjoyed was the Ugly Christmas Sweater block of the month. So much fun!!

Peggy Terzian said...

I'm still working on the Farm Girl Vintage QAL by Lori Holt of Bee In My Bonnet, the Farmer's Wife 1930's QAL with Angie of Gnome Angel and starting the Crossroads QAL with the Fat Quarter Shop. In the hopper are the Moda Shuffle Sampler and Pat Sloan's Mystery Garden BOM!

Unknown said...

love the quilt

chele said...

I've done a Leah Day BOM but never a quilt along. Looking forward to anew adventure.

Arteria McCummings said...

I have been apart of a couple Craftsy BOM and also Bonni Hunters 2015 Mystery quilt along. Unfortunately I haven't finished any of these but they are fun to follow along. I'm hoping Maggie's First Dance will break this habit and not add to my UFO pile. It's a smaller project which makes me hopeful. 😊

Judy Valentino said...

I do a lot of online bom and quilatalongs!!!!!!!!!!!

Karen said...

I have done a couple of quiltalongs and got the tops done. I just need to get them quilted.

Cynthia Lanahan said...

Yes. I participate in a wool applique group online.

I love BOMs ... I have a list of those I follow along with. I bookmark their sites so I can go through at the beginning of the month and collect them all. Right now, my favorites are the Heirloom Attic wool ornament and the Buttermilk Basin mystery BOM! :)

Debbie GARRISON said...

Aurifil Designer of the Month, Pat Sloan's "My Secret Garden" as well as her "Splendid Sampler", one hosted by Lynette Jensen on Craftsy called "Garden Charm", and Jinny Beyer's "Cosmos" to name the most exciting.

Good morning. This is my second BOM and I hope to do better than the first try. The first BOM was a cute Christmas quilt with adorable snowmen scenes and I loved it, but didn't yet finish it. It's sitting in my UFO stack - maybe this year.....
