Sign Up for the Free Sew Along

Please join us for an uplifting, simple sew along project.  One quick and easy block per week.

{Sign Up For Silver Linings Emails and Never Miss a Pattern}

After much consideration, we have decided to delay our super popular annual free “Block of the Month” and do something a little smaller and lighter during this season of Global Pandemic.

The Silver Linings Sew Along will release a new pieced “surprise” block each Monday for 12 weeks. You will be able to download these blocks right from this page (see below.)

Optional- sign up at any time throughout this sew along, and be notified via email every time we release a new pieced block. PLUS, get the BONUS embroidery blocks as well.

Watch for bonus embroidery blocks every other Friday, delivered via email ONLY to those on the email list.

(and some extra project bonuses for Silver Linings email subscribers!)

 

We will be releasing 12 pieced blocks that can be downloaded from this page, plus if you sign up for our optional email list, you will get 6 embroidery blocks (for a total of 18 blocks!) Our completed quilt will have 12 blocks, so you can choose any blocks you want to put into the final quilt project.

Do you have questions about our Sew Along or technical problems?  See our FAQ Page for common questions and answers.

Each Week's pieced block will be posted here:

Hi – I’m Jacquelynne, and I love being creative!

I’m so glad you are joining us for this sew along! We are going to keep things SIMPLE- simple blocks, released weekly, that you can complete in less than an hour. It will kind of be like a “mystery”- you won’t know what the blocks look like until we release them each week…

AND- if you sign up for our optional email list, you’ll also receive 6 BONUS embroidery patterns, released every other Friday. Now, the embroidery blocks will take longer than hour to complete… but embroidery is super calming and relaxing! If you’ve never tried it, I’ve got some videos to get you started.
 

 I love looking for beauty all around me every day – a lovely quilt, a pretty tea cup, or some blooming flowers outside my window.  When I spend even a little bit of time making something and exercising the creative part of my brain, it fills me with joy and satisfies my soul. 

It can be hard sometimes to find the time that we need to be creative – we have errands to run, dinner to prepare, or children (or grandchildren!) and spouses to take care of.  And then we do “make” some time to be creative, we feel guilty with all of those “chores” that need to be done.
But if we deny ourselves the creativity that we have been given, we stifle a key part of who we were created to be.  All of us have that creative spark in us – and when we use it that spark can grow and give us joy and make us better people.
