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.
