The winner of the January give-away of an aurifil thread pack has been selected!

To see the winner go to my BOM Page.  If you haven't downloaded the January Seminole Sampler row, you still have 1 day to get it for free.  Starting Monday Feb 1, Row 2 will go up and Row 1 will be retired to my website, where you will be able to purchase it.

Check out my Facebook Page for three additional winners of Free Patterns!  The sun is out and it is 60 degrees here in Kansas and I am feeling generous!  LOL

You can still order Fabric Kits for the Seminole Sampler for just $15 month!

That includes all the fabric to make the whole quilt top, plus binding and postage for each shipment. Click HERE to order your Fabric Kit!  Oh, and did I mention that the fabric comes cut in the right widths so you can start sewing as soon as your kit arrives???  Whoooo Hoooo and thanks Peggy at home of the 40" yard.

Another Deco Gardens Block

If you are collecting the new additions to the Deco Gardens series of bonus blocks I have just added a new one.  This is the Thistle.  12" finished block size.

A very delicate looking block with LOTS of little applique pieces!  Yea, just what you needed on a cold January day!  I like it in the white background, but the black background is also pretty.

And a four block pillow or wall hanging would be very distinctive.

You can get this new Deco Gardens Bonus Block 14 Thistle Block HERE.

Have you downloaded you free Seminole Sampler Block for the new 2016 BOM?  It is still available on the 2016 BOM tab at the top of the page.

Want to link your blog to this BOM so you don't forget to download your block every month?  Here is a Blog Badge to post as a reminder.

Don't forget to enter the drawing for a free Aurifil Thread Pack by leaving a comment on the 2016 BOM page and filling in the Raflecopter entry.

New Block of the Month for 2016

Well, now, that's different!

That is what I heard when I showed this year's new BOM to some friends.  Yup, it is different!  After 4 years of doing applique BOMs I promised my readers I would do a pieced one this year and here it is.

The Seminole Sampler

I have been teaching Seminole Patchwork for several years and thought it was time I designed an original sampler I could use as a teaching piece.  So this does double duty!  I will be offering a free row every month on my blog and in my newsletter.  Subscribers will receive a bonus block, as always.

Peggy from will be providing FABRIC KITS for this project, and I am thrilled to be able to offer these incredible kits to my readers. Last year's Deco Gardens kits were a huge success, so I am hoping that you will enjoy these fabulous batik beauties.  Watch for the link coming January 8.

In the meantime check out Peggy's amazing batiks and kits.  Her yard cuts are 40" and shipping is free.

Go to the new 2106 BOM tab at the top of this block to access the link for row 1, the Harlequin row.

BIG NEWS, I am doing a monthly give-away on my blog for those who enter each month's contest.  Each month will be something different to enter.  This month all you have to do is leave a comment on the 2016 BOM Tab. WOW!

Did you love all those Art Nouveau flower blocks?  Well I did too, so I am still designing more of them.  Click here to get this month's new block, the Daffodil.
