Please join me in welcoming our guest blogger, Jacquelynne Steves. She’s here to share with us her upcoming BOM and she’s sponsoring a fabulous give-away too.

Thanks to Michele for having me here on her blog today! She always has great information and projects for quilters – her web site is such a great resource!

I’d like to share a really fun and free event with you. Have you heard about the Sew Sweet Simplicity Block of the Month?


This FREE Block of the Month will run 5 months – not too long, not too short – just right! Why is it called Sew Sweet Simplicity? Because the blocks look way more complicated than they are!

B-Jacquelynne Steves Free Block of the Month

When I designed this project, I wanted to provide you with lots of options. So, you can do a 4 block quilt, or, if you have a little more time you can make a 6 block quilt.


And, you will have 3 different 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)

There will also be a blog hop each month, so you can see how different bloggers made their quilt – different fabrics, perhaps different settings and borders… So be prepared to be inspired. Oh, and of course, you can’t have a blog hop without fun prizes and giveaways!!!

Doesn’t this sound fun? If you’d like to sew along with us, just click here to sign up. You will have the patterns delivered to your inbox each month. The first block will be sent out on October 27.

To make things even more fun, I am sponsoring a giveaway here on Michele’s blog. Three lucky winners will receive a bundle of give PDF patterns (retail value $40).


I hope you will join us for this fun event! And thanks again to Michele for having me here as her guest today!

Have A Creative Day-BOMFlower_JacquelynneSteves


To enter the give-away, leave a comment below answering “What Christmas quilting are you making this year?” Three winners will be selected to receive Jacquelynne’s PDF pattern bundle shown above. One entry per person. Winners will be chosen randomly and notified via email next Wednesday, October 15th.


Congratulations to the three winners. You’ve each been sent an email from me and you’ll receive your PDF patterns from Jacquelynne shortly. Thanks everyone for participating.

    I have a quilt to complete for my GGD and then on to several seasonal quilts and wall hangings I would like to complete for my friends and family. I would love the extra patterns.

  • October 9, 2014 at 10:47 am

    I’m making 4 quilts for my 4 grandchildren. Have one done so far!

  • October 9, 2014 at 10:52 am

    So far just one small wall hanging, but I’m sure I will add another couple of smaller projects in the mix.

  • October 9, 2014 at 11:03 am

    I am making Christmas stockings for my grandchildren. Having so much fun doing it. I love for my smaller projects to look “old” or primitive, so I am excited about the project. Hope they inspire family traditions.

    I have been making quilted pot holders for Christmas gifts. I am also working on recycled denim table runner for a gift and on 2 different red work hand embroidery designs as well. And I am way behind I should have had more accomplished by now.

  • October 9, 2014 at 11:04 am

    I am finishing a red work Christmas panel. It seems like I’ve been doing it forever but I’m almost done. It will become a throw for my couch for the holidays. Still need to make 3 t shirt quilts for my boys, not sure if they will be done by Christmas or not

  • October 9, 2014 at 11:05 am

    I’ll probably do some placemats and one or two quilts. Depends on time. Busy knitting socks as well.

  • October 9, 2014 at 11:13 am

    I’ve done a couple of tree skirts and am now using the left-over fabric to make patchwork pot holders. Once I get a stack of them, I think I’ll do a few Amish star pot holders in Christmas colors. Then, if I still have fabric, maybe some place mats.

    I’m focusing on all my ufo;s. I’m trying to finish the circular napkins for my daughter in law. The are almost done A”Quilting friends are the best” wall hanging for my dear friend, and a celtic door bell hanging for another friend. All are within reach if I focus. The surprise package as above would be fun.

    I will be busy in the next few months. I am finishing a quilt for my new granddaughter; a friend wants me to make a quilt as a Christmas gift for her new granddaughter; plus I want to make 2 quilts for my two grandchildren who are 7 and 9. They want “warm” quilts–ones with flannel backing; I haven’t made them with flannel backings before on the several quilts they already have and they are getting taller (ages 7 and 9) and they want bigger quilts too. Fortunately, I have all the fabric so I just have to get busy.

  • October 9, 2014 at 12:09 pm

    I have 5 quilts nearly finished piecing which are to be Christmas quilts for 5 grandchildren. I have never quilted anything yet so that might be a challenge.

  • October 9, 2014 at 12:12 pm

    I don’t have a Christmas project planned yet but I would love to make a set of quilted stockings for my family. My youngest, 10 years old, is still using his Baby’s First Christmas stocking!

  • October 9, 2014 at 12:23 pm

    I usually don’t make quilty gifts for Christmas because I don’t like deadlines, and I tend to procrastinate. I am making a wallhanging for myself that I hope to have to be able to use this year.

    I’m trying to get a quilt done for my son! He always seems to be forgotten and put on the back burner and he’s so supportive of my quilting and helpful! We live in a town without a fabric store he’s so good about stopping at JoAnn’s after visiting his girlfriend in a nearby town and picking up fabric for me! He will even send me pics to make sure he gets the fabric I’m looking for! How many sons would do this!!!

I’m sure it will be an emotional gift for all of us.

These quilts are both Christmas gifts this year.
