Blocks 3 & 4 ~ Shabby Roses Home!


It's very difficult making you wait a month for each set of blocks because I get really excited when I've stitched them and just want to share them straight away!
But, patience is a virtue, so two blocks a month only and we'll all be the better for it. 
Or so I'm told. 

"Shabby Roses Home BOM"

Block 3
 Block 4

...and they join together like this!

The two blocks are a FREE download for one month only - until September 18th.
Click HERE for the pattern. You can save it to your Craftsy library and access it any time you like if you don't want to store it on your computer.
Isn't "Little House 1" a cutie?!


 If you're a late starter to this BOM you can read all about it HERE.
You won't miss out on the first two blocks, but there is a $2 charge for the set now that their free month is over.
These are blocks 1 & 2...
Tomorrow I have a tutorial for you!
One of the questions I am asked a lot is 'how' to prepare a block for blanket-stitch applique, so I have prepared a step by step tutorial to help those lovely blog readers see how I do it.
You'll watch as I put together Block 5 of this BOM, and if you haven't yet stitched the house in block 2, this will help you get started.


See you tomorrow everyone!

  13. Ach wie süß, danke liebe Jenny. Ich freue mich auf dein Tutorial. Ich habe noch nicht mit dem Quilt begonnen, da mir noch der Hintergrundstoff fehlt, da hatte ich ja richtig Glück.
    Liebe Grüße Annerose

It's always nice to receive feedback on a blog post, so *thank you* for taking time to comment!
I will try to reply via email unless you are a 'no reply blogger' which means you'll have to check for my reply in the comments. Of course, life is a rather hazardous activity, isn't it? So if I don't respond to your comment that's the reason why - life simply stepped in...
hugs
Jenny
