2018 BOM

From January 1st, 2018, we shall begin our stitching journey with my Block of the Month quilt,  "A Year in the Garden".
On the first of every month I'll share a new floral inspired block that you can download for free during the month of it's release.

Each block is free for one month.

January's block is a free gift for one month until the February block is shared. February's block will be a free gift for one month until the March block is shared...and so it goes with each subsequent block. 
Once a block's month has passed it will become a $2 purchase from my shop.

With your January pattern you'll also receive the materials list for finishing all twelve stitcheries as a quilt, and I shall include that quilt pattern with the final block of the year on December 1st.

Block 1 - January


Block 2 - February

(a free download until February 28th)

Happy garden stitching,

This new design is so pretty that I had to sign up right away for your newsletter. I found out about it from Julie of The Crafty Quilter. I haven't done any embroidery for a long time, so this is just what I needed to get started again. Thank you for sharing your beautiful designs.

I'm so excited to be relearning embroidery that I was taught many years ago. Can hardly wait to receive the first block pattern for January 2018!

I too found out about you from Julie of The Crafty Quilter!

Thanks for sharing.

I also found you through the Crafty Quilter blog. Your designs are sweet. Thank you for the BOM project.

Jenny, Block #1 calls for some stitching to use "Rust", though it is not in the color key. What do you suggest?

Jenny of Elefantz said...

Hi Diane. there are only two Rust colours in the pattern - Deep Rust and Medium Rust.
I simply omitted adding the 'Deep' to all the Rust steps. Have now updated the pattern. Thanks for letting me know.

I love your patterns. I am doing the block of the month for this year. My problems is the floss numbers are for Cosmo - the only thing in my area they sell is DMC. Most of the conversation charts do not have coordinating numbers. Any suggestions?

Thank you Alicia

Jenny of Elefantz said...

Alicia, here's a conversion chart link but be aware they are not exact.

Also, I encourage you to choose threads which blend with the fabric you're using if you do not have the same fabric as I've used in the quilt.

Jenny, thank you so much for your gentle words you share with so many! I haven't stictched one of these just yet, but I can see a time in the near future when I will! I look forward to reading your posts and your sweet family.

From Texas I am sending you a big hug!!
