Cozy Afternoon – Free BOM – Blocks 1 and 2

Cup-B1 (1)

Jacquelynne Steves is offering another series of free blocks-of-the-month called Cozy Afternoon.

There will be five blocks, each with a pattern to embroider or applique for the center.  I have a large hassock with a lid which I’m going to cover, using five blocks – one for the top of the lid and four for the sides.  I used a fussy-cut center for the top which will get a lot of wear.

I’ll be adding corner triangles which will make this a perfect size for my hassock.

The embroidery pattern was so cute that I made another block with a redwork cup.  This piece will probably be turned into a gift bag.

Jacquelynne included block 2 in this post which I made using a panel with vintage embroidery of a sailboat.

A pattern for a teapot applique (or embroidery) was included and I couldn’t resist making up another block to be used later in another project.

Both of the blocks are very easy with good results.  I particularly like block 1 and will find other good uses for it.

There’s still time to join in the fun and make some really nice blocks.

  1. Boy was I surprised at your new heading; for a moment I thought I was on the wrong blog. (I sometimes read the email version without clicking over–ruins your stats. 🙂 ) So nice to have a stash of blocks in the wings for when “that” project comes along that they are perfect for!

  2. I love using the sailboat design with this block! Your Cozy Afternoon blocks are all great. I can see that you really liked these. I hope to start my embroidery on the first two later this week. I look forward to seeing the whole hassock done, too. You were smart enough to orient them the way they were supposed to go! LOL

  3. Lillian, I need to figure out how to share your site with my best-friend-also quilter – she seldom goes beyond the borders of their friends and acquaintances –but I know she would love your quilt blocks. I love them! and I dont sew! thanks much, Sandy
