Cozy Afternoon Block-of-the-Month – A Hassock Cover

004

Jacquelynne Steves recently offered a series of free blocks-of-the-month called Cozy Afternoon.

The block patterns began in May and ended in October with suggestions on setting and borders.  I intended from the first day to make a cover for a large storage hassock I keep in my sewing room.  There would be one panel for the top and four for the sides, adding corner triangles and sashing.

I thought the blocks were very pretty  …..

Unfortunately, the end product was not what I wanted.  The cover doesn’t fit as well as I hoped and I’m not sure about the triangle fabric I used.  It has the beach and shoreline look I wanted but doesn’t set off the blocks very well.

I’ll keep the cover for now, but the piece would be easy to take apart and I’ll be looking for ideas to use these nice panels in a better way.

  1. I’m sorry it doesn’t fit as you like because the blocks are wonderful. The picture at the top looks okay to me, but I don’t know what you had in mind, so that doesn’t mean a thing. They are beautiful blocks, and I know you’ll find another purpose for the wonderful nautical theme you made.
