Half of Farm Girl Fridays Blocks Finished and Something FREE

Hello! I feel like I haven't blogged in a long time. I've been so busy with projects for other people and making things to sell. I did some nocturnal piecing last night and did both the 12" Crops block for the Farm Girl Fridays QAL:

and the 6" Blooms block:

When I have enough blocks finished, I plan to make tops and try to sell them. So here's something really FUN and FREE (my criteria for everything these days). I've told you before about Jacquelynne Steves free block of the month quilt called Cozy Afternoon:

It's a easy and fun quilt that you can put together in a snap. The center squares feature a tea pot and tea cute! You can either embroider them or you can applique them. As you can see from the samples that Jacquelynne designed, you can also opt to leave the center squares blank if you want and the quilt still looks good.
All you have to do to join the BOM is go to Jacquelynne's blog HERE and sign up. You will receive the digital block patterns every month and the finishing instructions for FREE! After you read my blog today, pop over and sign up and see the different colorways she has put up on the blog to inspire you.
You can also buy a kit if you want with fabrics that Jacquelynne has designed. In addition, she has a FREE digital design magazine that you can sign up for and it will be delivered to your inbox each month!
Now here's the part that's fun for me! I've been working on my own Cozy Afternoon blocks and I'll be showing my first two blocks of this quilt tomorrow. My colorway is really different and kind of out there. I chose a floral fabric by Mary Engelbreit for the border and the large floral blocks and then I pulled colors from it to do the center applique blocks. So I'm putting my first two blocks on the blog tomorrow and Jacquelynne will letting me host a giveaway for a NEW pattern that she has designed. All you have to do is leave a comment to be entered and, because it's a digital pattern, anyone from anywhere in the world can enter! You will only be able to get this free quilt pattern from my giveaway and the giveaways of some other bloggers who are hosting Cozy Afternoon. 
 So be sure to go sign up for the Cozy Afternoon BOM and come back here tomorrow to see my blocks and enter the giveaway for a free designer quilt pattern! Have a great Sunday! XO from Bev

Can't wait to see your block Bev. I love the variety in quilting, making the same block in twelve different colors is what makes quilting fun. As I recall, I did a lot of coloring as a kid as well. Good training for later it seems. BTW, have you seen the coloring books for kids these days. I bought some for the next time I see my grandkids. They not 29 cents anymore, but the designs were fantastic. One was a Charley Harper art book and the other is The Secret Garden with all sorts of fantastic, somewhat zentangle patterns each with a hidden bird, bug, or caterpillar. I had to sit down and look at the coloring books page by page. It's not your coloring book of the old days, that's for sure. Stephani in N. TX (
