Hello everyone and, if this is your first visit, welcome to my blog Farmhouse Quilts! I am very excited to have been asked to be a participant in Jacquelynne Steves’ block of the month! It will be so much fun to sew along every month, AND to see everyone’s blocks. ( I always love seeing Continue reading

It hasn’t been all that long since I published my last post but I am so excited to share with you that I will be a featured blogger in an upcoming Block of the Month program! I am so excited and have been busy planning my colors and materials I want to use. I hope that all of you will join in the fun too! You can sign up here and you can follow along on facebook too, once it all gets started ( we won’t start until June so there is plenty of time).
The best part about it is that it is all completely FREE! If you have never done a sew-along, they are so much fun! You can share photos of your work and you will get to see other people’s work, plus the different guest bloggers will show you their versions of the blocks too. What I like about this quilt is that you can choose whether you want to just piece, piece and applique, or piece and embroider the different blocks, so you can make it fit you and your wants/ needs/ desires/skill levels…
Well, I’m off to work on my blocks now so that they are ready for you when the time comes….go on, sign up, you know you want to!
Until next time!
