Hello everyone! I hope you’ve all had (or are still having) an enjoyable long weekend. Canada Day was Friday, so our celebrations happened then. Hope my quilting friends in the United States have a wonderful day today.
I’m excited to share with you Jacquelynne Steves FREE Block of the Month, Maggie’s First Dance. The appliqué layout version is shown below; however, you can choose to do fusible machine appliqué or embroidery for your blocks.
July is block 2 of this BOM. Here’s my embroidered version:
I used one less print, in favour of using more of the colourful dots fabric. The fabrics I’ve pulled for this project are shown below. I need a table runner for a gift later this year, so I’m thinking these pretty blocks will be perfect to use for that.
I’ve also finished the embroidery for the first block. It was a first time trying hand embroidery, and I really love the process. There’s nothing better than sitting outside on the porch stitching the summer evenings away.
Milo loves our outside office:
Yes, I made my first embroidery Oops when stitching block 2 last week. Oh well, it was quick to unstitch and redo.
To enter the give-away, just leave a comment below telling me how you spent your weekend. I’ll randomly choose four winners on Friday, July 8th. Winners will be notified via email.
Also, don’t forget to sign up for Maggie’s First Dance BOM to receive the two designs already released and get the future ones when they become available.
