SEW SWEET SIMPLICITY BOM BY JACQUELYNNE STEVES......

What a fun BOM, Jacquelynne Steves has done a fantastic job with this BOM.  It has been extremely fun seeing everyone's fabrics variations and I am looking forward to hopping over to everyone's blog to see their finished product.

Here is mine.  I wanted a bigger quilt so I added the applique in the middle.

Middle up close


Finished quilt hanging in my sewing room.  A bit of Spring for this cold winter morning.


   Here is one square quilted.


I hope you enjoyed making your quilt as I did mine.  

Tuesday she is posting contest rules for those of you who have made this BOM and have finished it.  Wonderful prizes as well and I hear tell one of the prizes will be a quilt kit...so don't forget to go by there on Tuesday.

For the last giveaway 
Jacquelynne is giving away an E Book worth $14.95 so be sure to leave a comment.  It is okay if you want to just pass by but this book is so awesome and is so worth the comment.







Look on my sidebar for those participating in the hop, they would love a visit from you.

Oh, Barb, how did I miss seeing this post? Your Sew Simplicity quilt came out so beautiful! I never got past the first block...yet! You did an amazing job. I love the extra appliqué work down the center. I wanted mine to be bigger, too, so I intended to make two of every block...still will, eventually.
