Raggedy & Friends – Block 2

Where has the month gone?  I can’t believe that it’s time for Block 2 of the Raggedy & Friends BOM.  For those of you who may have missed it, you can find the link to Block 1 here or on the right sidebar under the Raggedy & Friends button.  And speaking of the button, please feel free to grab it and place it on your blog with a link back here for anyone who might visit your blog and not know about it.

To date, there have been just under 3,000 downloads of Block 1.  It is so neat to have photos of completed blocks sent to me from all over the globe.  Some I’ve already shared with you and today I’d like to show you three more.

Here is Sharon’s version.

Here is Pamela’s…

And here is Wilma’s from the Netherlands done in what else but Dutch blues!

No two that I’ve seen have been even remotely the same.  Thank you all for sharing!

So without further ado, here is Block 2.

You may download the PDF file including the picture, line drawings and instructions HERE.  Once you are there, please remember to click on the blue download button on the left and then simply follow the instructions.

Oh and before I forget, Darlene from Quilting Daze has tried a new-to-me product called Transfer-Eze which she talks about and demonstrates here.  For those of you who don’t like to transfer patterns, perhaps this might become your new best friend.

See you on the 20th of September for Block 3.

Happy stitching!

Lovely Kaaren. Love the blue version!
So many different colour selections, it's wonderful.
Thankyou for block 2.

I love seeing the blocks made by other quilter/stitchers. Very sweet new block. I did read Darlene's post on transfer eze. It's great to learn of new products--tested by crafters.

Janet said...

You're so generous Kaaren, I'm not stitching it but I'm enjoying seeing the blocks and all the ones that are being stitched.

Betty said...

I have just downloaded Block 2 and can't wait to start stitching. Kaaren, thanks again for sharing this with the blogging world. Also, enjoy seeing all the other finished blocks that have been done. Interesting to see all the different versisons. The all blue one is way different but very nice.

Belén said...

Hello Kaaren, a lot of graces by the second block, love me your works. My enhorabuena by your colchas. Kisses

Deb said...

Thank you, Thank you! I've even set my lotus notes calendar to remind me to come here every month to get the patterns, they're so cute! The blue version is beautiful! I haven't started mine yet, but will soon - can hardly wait to get started!

Penny said...

Thanks Kaaren :)

KaHolly said...

Oh, Kaaren, I'm so excited! Thank you so much. I have Block 1 pieced and transferred, brought it with me to work on as I travel, but happily I am having too good a time to work on it! Guess I'll be busy when I get home! I love seeing everyone else's versions! ~karen

Darlene said...

Woohoo - block 2 is ready!!! I'm like Elzaan, an anxious child waiting for Christmas morning. LOL

Maria said...

All the Annie stitcheries are lovely.

I am collecting them for now as I have a lot of UFO's I need to finish before our Tri-Annual Hanging on the 10-10-10.

Thank you Karren for kindly sharing.

Fleurette said...

Thanks Kaaren for block 2. Loved seeing the versions of the first block, they're all so lovely.

Yvonne Cormier said...

Oh Kaaren.... this inspires me so much to make a small quilt for my new grandaughter born yesterday. That was my idea when I downloaded block 1 ... I'm just finishing another stitching project and then I am on my way.... you are a gem! Tks for sharing your wonderful talent! Yvonne New Brunswick Canada

Catherine C said...

Many thanks for sharing your lovely block 2. I'm ready to start and I'll prepare my fabrics for my holidays the next week. Have a nice day.

The Dutch Blues is a very good version of your quilt pattern.

Another DARLING block, Kaaren, oh thank you so much - I love seeing everyone's finished blocks, this is the sweetest quilt ever!
That transfer-eze sounds amazing - I'd love to try it!

Susan said...

I am making the 20th of each month a celebration of all things Raggedy Ann. This is so much fun all ready. I posted my first block today. Thanks for sharing this with us.

Thank you Kaaren! I,too,am just collecting at the moment because I have over extended myself this year. So when things calm down, I hope to make this darling quilt! Thank you so much for sharing the pattern.

Judy S. said...

Thanks Kaaren for sharing your cute quilt pattern with us!

Deb said...

I ordered my Transfer Eze on Friday so I can get started as soon as it comes. Do you have a suggestion for the type of material to use for background for the embroidery? A white on white cotton material, muslin?

Thanks!

Carrie P. said...

Oh, I know it must be so fun to see the different versions of your design. I am enjoying them.

Becky R said...

I would love to send you a picture of my completed block 1. I took the artwork and using the Bernina embroidery software digitized it so I could then stitch it out on my embroidery machine. It was great fun.

Shauna said...

LOVE your blog, I have just recently found it and I am in Love. Thank you so much for doing this Raggedy & Friends. LOVE IT. I am two months behind but I will be sending you pictures once I get this all printed and figured out what colours I will be doing this in.

I've only just "discovered" your blog and the Raggedy blocks -- I'm in love! I've downloaded the first block, but I can't seem to get the second one to work for some reason. The download page appears, but the file won't download. Can you help, please? Thanks!
