Final block for 'My Vintage Kitchen' BOM!

It's hard to believe we began this Block of the Month nine months ago!
Yet, here we are at the very last block, "Cookie Jar"...

If you've kept up with the designs each month and are about to stitch this final one then I think you deserve to make a big batch of your very favourite cookies and enjoy them slowly with a tall glass of milk, juice, coffee or tea... 

...because the next step is to piece all nine blocks together as a mini quilt.

Along with the "Cookie Jar" pattern this month I've also written up the 'My Vintage Kitchen' finishing instructions...

Both the block, and the finishing instructions file, can be download for free HERE in my shop until December 31st.

The previous eight blocks are still in the shop and will also remain free until the end of this year.
If you've missed any be sure to download them soon, okay?
I hope you've enjoyed this year's Block of the Month!
When you've completed your quilt please email a photo to me so it can be shared here in a special Show & Tell later this year. You'll find my email details HERE.
I can't wait to see it!

The final two designs for September's Stitchery Club are done so today I can show you all six "Inspire" patterns my members will receive on the 17th. 

You have until September 16th to join if you're not already a member.
All information can be found HERE.
I hope you'll consider being part of our stitching fun!

Tomorrow I have someone I'd like you to meet.
She's the newest member of our family...

...and we're totally in love with her.

Until then, have a wonderful first day of Spring if you live on my side of the world or a beautiful entrance to Autumn if you're on the other.

It is truly inspiring. Add to that the wonderful heartfelt responses that you write that encourage and say thank you yourself are another welcoming event that always makes me smile. You truly are an amazing person! Thank you for sharing and have a wonderful creative day. I am looking forward to meeting the new member of your family!

  11. Querida Jenny, yo estoy justamente "al otro lado de tu mundo". Feliz primavera a tí.
    Gracias por desearme un buen otoño. Primero , darte las gracias por tus regalos. Voy a intentar terminar el bordado a tiempo. Segundo, yo te doy mi admiración por tanto trabajo que haces. Creo que no te quedan suficientes horas para dormir. Y tercero, creo que tu ampliación de familia, Merri, es una preciosidad. Que tengas un buen día. O noche, creo, en tu lado del mundo :) Sea la hora que sea, todos mis buenos deseos para tí. Besos.

  12. Thank you for the Kitchen BOM Jenny. One of these days I will get to it! At least I have it all in one place.

  13. Love that VK block so much, as I do all of them!!! And all your new stitcheries are so gorgeous, but that park bench just speaks to me - how I love the quiet places!

    Merri is absolutely adorable, I'm sure she's fitting in splendidly - how is Bob taking her? Is his nose out of joint? Or is he happy?

  14. Thanks , I’ve recently been searching for info about this subject for ages and yours is the greatest I have discovered till now. But, what about the bottom line? Are you sure about the source?

  15. I'm so behind on my blog reading. I'm playing catch up today. I think this is my favorite block from this series. Probably because cookies are my favorite snack. Thank you so much for generosity. You are always gifting us with such wonderful projects.


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...
