Here is how the Block of the Month program will work:
==========
1.  Each month I will post a free block on my blog for 30 days.  You may download and print out the block pattern for your personal use only.  Any other use requires permission.  If your friends want the block you are welcome to direct them to my blog to download a copy.  You may NOT share your copy with them.

2.  After 30 days a new block will be posted and the previous block will be available for purchase for $3.50 on my website:  http://morningglorydesigns.com.

3.  Subscribers to my newsletter will receive a BONUS BLOCK each month in the newsletter.  It is available only to subscribers and only for 30 days.  After 30 days the link will be closed and block removed.  Bonus blocks will NOT be offered for sale.  Newsletters will be sent out on the first of the month and the 15th of the month.
  
4.  Email requests for past or current blocks OR issues of the newsletter will not be honored.  I still have a day job, and there is not enough time for me to field the dozens of requests I get for FREE blocks.  Sorry about that, but this is the only way I am able to continue to offer a free BOM every year.  Please do not share your bonus blocks.  Your friends may subscribe to my newsletter and get their own copy. Your guild may not use this as their block of the month without permission.   I will be happy to provide your guild with print-ready instructions, if requested, for a modest fee.  Contact me for more information.

5.  Please update your browser to the newest version (I prefer Chrome) to ensure a successful download from BOX.com.  You do not need an account to download the block PDF file.  If you are asked to create an account it means the link is expired.  Internet Explorer often has issues with BOX.com so I do not recommend using it.  I am not a computer expert and I don't know what dastardly deeds have been done to your computer.  If you have trouble with the download there are three possible reasons:  (1) operator error, (2) browser not updated or functioning correctly, (3) expired link.  If a link is not functioning properly, believe me, I will hear about it!!!   

6.  Only subscribers will receive the sashing, border and finishing instructions.  These will not be posted on my blog.  They will be mixed in throughout the course of the program, not at the end, so that you can start working on them between blocks.  When all 12 blocks have been completed, the entire pattern will be offered for sale on my website.  If you miss an issue with setting or finishing instructions, see rule #4.

  8. WOW, what great suggestions! You are all so clever! I am writing all of these down to consider. My sisters are going to help me choose this time! Keep the suggestions coming. That stack of fat quarters (Kaffe Fasset fabrics) are bright and bold just like this quilt and will go to the winner. You are welcome to enter more than one idea! Thanks and Happy New Year to all of you!!

  10. How about Serendipity? Love, love, love it. I am thinking of doing it in Christmas colors for my queen size bed.

  11. I like the name in spanish: Azulejos. But you could use the name in english, Tiles or tiling.
    I keep looking at the picture of the quilt and I see figures of a kaleidoscope. I like that name too. You will like to you? "KALEIDOSCOPE"

    "blue bonheur"

  18. Maybe "Dutch tiles"? They look like the Delft tiles. I myself Iam from Belgium and not from Holland but I love the Delft tiles.

  19. I guess since my first thought when I saw this was beautiful quilt Reeze. And because of that, I think it should be named "Beautiful 2014 BOM". This name gives not only the thought of how beautiful those blocks each are, but a hope that 2014 will be a beautiful year as well.

  20. How about Celtic Glory? Love your design.

  21. A Treasury of Tiles
    So beautiful - love the border!

  22. I would call it "Glorious Blossoms"

  23. When I took that first look, I saw "Celtic Gardens" - so that's my suggestion!

  24. 'San Miguel' since these tiles are similar to those I saw in the charming Renaissance village of San Miguel de Allende in Mexico. Wonderful pattern!

  27. So pretty! I think "First Bloom"

  28. I would call the "Union" because unites people from all over the world.

  29. Yo lo llamaría "Alhambra" como el palacio musulman de Granada, pues los bloques se asemejan a los sus azulejos

    ReplyDelete
  30. I would name it " Celtic Garden". It's a lovely quilt.

  31. INSIDE THE VINE is what came to me looking at all the blocks inside that neat border!

  32. Reese,

    I would name it ALL FOR ONE!

    The saying All for One - and one for all came to me because the blocks all look to be associated with each other by color or design. Beautiful pattern. Thanks for sharing.

  33. I would go with-- Irish Fantasy Garden .

  34. When I saw this quilt I thought.... These blocks looks like tiles that my grandmother had in her yard, in Jaén. So, I think that "Al-Andalus memories" it would be a great name.

  37. dolly plachy A good name is strolling through the flowers.

  38. Hi the name I would give would be "Garden Maize". Each block is a separate garden joined to the other by the connecting pink diamond. It is a beautiful looking quilt.

    ReplyDelete
  39. I think it looks like a Baroque or French Garden, with different places, flower beds and ornaments.

    "Quilted Terrazo: A Softer Side" or "Quilted Terrazo: The Softer Side"
    (pronounced ter·raz·zo) My first impression of this beautiful quilt reminded me of detailed mosaics. Instead of layering stone chips or tile-like marble, layered fabric reveals a " quilted softer side." I am new to your site; I've already traced out my first block on freezer paper for traditional applique. Thank you for sharing your intriguing, warm-hearted ideas.

    I'm not sure if I have this right, but I'm reposting as there seems to be two areas to leave comments. One has 90 comments and the other 125. Thank you.

    Here are a few more titles for your wonderful quilt:
    "Sophistication Times Twelve"
    "mosaic Alfresco Garden"
    "Mosaic Sophistication"
    I am so looking forward to receiving your on-line newsletter and becoming more familiar with your site and quilting materials and products. Thank you, Lorraine Just found this 2nd comment section, so post this here.

  42. Tile Blossoms or Spring Time Medley. I already put a comment on but thought I would add to it. My other one was Mosaic Medley.

  43. Lovely pattern thanks for posting. I'm going to call my quilt Knot Gardens at Daybreak because I plan to use a fabric that resembles a morning sky for my background. But perhaps Mornings by the Knot Garden" would work for your site's block of the month? Thanks for your gift Susan Jaenen-Griffin Moosomin Saskatchewan Canada

  44. I hope this goes through... been having trouble posting for some reason :(
    I had a couple of names the other night, now I'm not sure what they are, so I'll try again lol. It has a Celtic look to me, and I was thinking something like 'Through the Looking Glass', but what about 'Through Celtic Windows' or 'Majestic Ways' or 'Path to Serenity'? I find that giving something a name is almost as hard as coming up with the design in the first place! It could also be seen as a representation of a formal English Garden, so another idea might be 'Walk with Me', a 12 month journey of inspiration and friendship :) Thank you for sharing with us Reese!!

  45. I would name it Lourmarin after one of the most beautiful spots in Provence!
    Thank you so much for your gorgeous design.

  48. Hi, thanks for this wonderful gift you have offered us, the 1st block I didn't get because of family illness and the 2nd block will not print out for me. When I try I just get a blank page with the headings at the top. Can you offer any help?
