We are halfway through the year already and another new block is being offered for free for the month of July. Two Roses is a sweet little posy in shades of red and yellow. Think how sweet it would be in various shades of pink or peach or even lilac! It was tough to settle on just two colors, and the rich Toscana (by Northcott Fabrics) textures are so delicious!
The bonus block this month (Blue Jars) is also free if you subscribe to my newsletter.
There is a super secret link just for subscribers in the newsletter each month. It is not too late to sign up to get the bonus block. The newsletter goes out on the 1st and 15th of each month.
In addition to the free blocks, there are half price patterns and special offers every month. And even a little bit about me from time to time. or more likely the cats, who are my partners in crime in the studio. Click on the link in the left side bar to sign up. Or click on the 2018 BOM tab at the top of the blog to get all the info you need on the 2018 FREE block of the month.
Also new this month is my Deco Roses pattern and Laser Cut Kits. Yup, they are finally here and I could not be more excited.

The pattern includes the complete instructions for making these 12" blocks into a table topper or a table runner. The kit contains the complete printed pattern, pre-fused laser cut applique for four complete blocks, a layout guide, and an see-through overlay sheet for working on dark background fabrics. You can even purchase the overlay sheet separately.
It was so fast putting these block together I could hardly believe how I used to struggle to trace and cut out all of these little pieces in the past. Now you just place the applique, press in place, and edge stitch.
I have more of these four-block projects in the works, based on some the most popular Deco Garden blocks from the past few years. Here is a peek at the next block to come out later this month.
Let me know what you think of these new laser cut projects. Leave a comment to be entered in a drawing for a free pattern!
