This Week's Projects from The Cozy Quilter

The neighbourhood is expanding!  I have 20 houses made now and lots of fabric set aside for more of them.  This will be an ongoing project for a few weeks.  

I also made the June and July blocks for the London Modern Quilt Guild HST block of the month mystery quilt.  There was one block for June and two for July so now I am all caught up until the next block pattern comes out in August.  Each month, we learn how to make HST's in a different way for our block that month. 

I started another knitted facecloth ...

Flower sewing from Applique 'n Patch Quilting

This will be the layout of my flowers ..... love, love, love them!  For one of the borders, I'm thinking of doing crazy patches for something different.

For a bit of tease, these are my latest quilts back from the LAer.  No binding, no sleeves, no labels yet but I just had to pin them up so that I can drool over them!  LOL
Another top is in the process of getting ready to go to be quilted.  Right now, I'm down to seven tops still in the queue and slowly but surely they are getting attended to.

With ...

A Finished Quilt

English Paper Piecing (EPP) was what kept me busy not only for the month of March, but also the month of April. I haven't kept a stitching diary and the days, weeks, and quilts have blurred, but my Instagram account tells me that the last seam for this quilt top was completed during the first week of May 2020.

Hexie panels from Applique 'n Patch Quilting

Yeah, at last ..... my hexie panels are done.  I started making the hexies Apr. 6 and put in the last stitch last night.  Not bad!

You can now see what the flowers will look like in between each panel.  I'm very happy with how it looks.  The job of prepping the leaves and stems is now taking place.

Two days ago, we had the remnants of Cristobal come through and with it came wind and rain and a change in temperature.  Tonight, it is supposed to go down to 1C (33.8F).  Chilly weather for a few more days ...

Hexies away from Applique 'n Patch Quilting

For my hexie project, two panels have now been done.

About another week and the last panel on the left should be done.

There is so much talk about the new blogger format.  I'm writing this post using the new format.  The only thing that I couldn't do was find the icon for NEW POST.  I had to go back to my old format and click onto the icon and then go back to the new format to do this post.  

Loading the photo was ok but to enlarge the photo was a tad tricky to find.  Eventually ...

Binding, Quilting, and Two New Quilts Started from The Cozy Quilter

Since I have finished 4 quilts in the last few weeks, I thought I could give myself permission to start a couple of new projects.  (Even though I still have lots of UFO's that I should be working on!). These house blocks are a free pattern from Cluck Cluck Sew.  I have a half yard of the lighter fabric and have pulled lots of fabrics in the colours found in that fabric to make houses and backgrounds.  I will use all of the fabrics as both houses and backgrounds.  I plan to add some words to this quilt...stay ...

Snow, snow go away! from Applique 'n Patch Quilting

This is what we woke up to this morning ..... we are so tired of snow!  Still, snow or rain is welcome because we didn't have a whole lot of snow over the winter and the prediction for forest fires this summer is real.  Still ...... 

In case any of you are wondering what the flags are for, they are there to indicate that bulbs were planted in the fall and we should start to see some spring flowers coming up .... hopefully!  LOL  The flags will stay there until we finish doing whatever planting has been done and then that should ...

My quickest quilt top ever from Wendy's Quilts and More

As I played around with my Marshal Mystery Quilt blocks last week, I came to the realisation that I would be better off making two quilts, rather than trying to combine all the blocks into one quilt.

I liked the idea of combining the small square blocks into rows or columns, so I looked in my stash for something that I could use as a background fabric.  Spurred on by people who say tell me that I'm so bold with my fabric choices, I used this Michael Millar fabric that's been in my stash for more than five ...

Almost there from Applique 'n Patch Quilting

This project is nearing the end.  I'm still only using scraps and have now dipped into a huge bin to see what is in there for a bit of variety.

This will be the final layout for the row of flowers in between the panels.  I just loved making those tiny hexies.
 This is the huge bin of scraps that needs to be dumped and sorted.   It is a tad overflowing right now!

I foresee more scrappy quilts coming up in the future.  Crazy blocks, braid blocks ..... the ideas are coming so fast and furious in my brain that ...

Where is spring? from Applique 'n Patch Quilting

This is what greeted us this morning!  A couple inches of snow and it is still snowing as I write this.  Lordy, but when will we get nice spring weather?  This will be a good day to stay inside .... oh wait ..... we're staying inside anyway!

So, down to my happy place I go and work on more hexies.  It is coming along very nicely and in a few weeks, my mess of scraps can be tidied up and stored away for another rainy/snowy/Covid day.  My hexies are just pinned onto my design wall.  There will be a ...

A Golden Finish – Aurous! from Heart Desire Creations

Golden hexies

Another quilt top off the hanger! This quilt was started long ago, challenged me in many ways, was completed and hung “to dry.”  I collected a variety of metallic Asian prints and used the gold fabric to bring out their beauty.  The black stars were a suggestion by a quilting guru friend. It was a pain, but glad to have taken her suggestion.  Thank you Laurie!  I was inspired to finally get this quilted and decided to do this one in a continuous circle.  Meet: Aurous (containing gold.)


The completed circles were quilted with black thread and the partial circles ...

A bit of ice shove! from Applique 'n Patch Quilting

I've been busy making hexies.  Lots and lots of hexies.  More bags of scrap fabric was found.  OMG .... I'm drowning in scraps.  Aagh!  Not to worry, I will work on making more quilts out of those scraps.  LOL  I do have lots of EPP patterns to choose from. 

This is where I'm at with this project so far.

On the virus front .... another 20 masks were made.  Some for local use, some for in another city.  No photo was taken as they are already gone.  I'll be making more and more and more masks.  Money has ...

Sew much .... oops .... squirrel! from Applique 'n Patch Quilting

Sew much is getting done these days, I can't stand it!   No, I lie .... my ufo's are getting dealt with and that makes me very happy.  My sister asked me if I was bored.  I laughed.  Me bored?  Not a chance.  It is just the getting out and shopping that disturbs me but we have to do it smartly and just stay at home.

So, I work away.  In my happy place. 

My apple cores are done and inner borders are on.  Just pondering the outside borders.  The top border will have applique.

Then, a squirrel came along ...

Hexagons from Grit's Life

Hallo Ihr Lieben,

heute möchte ich Euch den Werdegang von ganz besonderen Hexagonblümchen zeigen.


Dafür habe ich einen aktuellen Stoff der Serie "Where in the World" von Paula Nadelstern benutzt und zwar Blue Multi Rio. Die gesamte Kollektion findet Ihr in meinem *** Onlineshop ***

Zuerst habe ich mir jeweils 6 mal das gleiche Motiv ausgesucht

Dabei hat mir mein Hexagonlineal sehr geholfen, denn es hat die richtige Größe um die Hexagons mit Nahtzugabe zu markieren und auszuschneiden.

Meine Hexagonschablonen haben eine Kantenlänge von 1 Inch.
Damit der Stoff nicht verrutscht habe ich ihn ein klein wenig in der Mitte geklebt ...

Hexagon from Grit's Life

Hallo Ihr Lieben,

Hexagons mal anders.......


Ich möchte Euch zwei neue Lineale vorstellen, von denen ich total begeistert bin.
Beide Linealsets findet Ihr in meinem Onlineshop

Sie sind von Missouri Star Quilts und heute habe ich das Erste ausprobiert.

Ich habe das "Quilt As You Go Hexgon Template Set" getestet.
Es sind zwar noch nicht viele Hexagons entstanden, im nächsten Post zeige ich mehr.
Durch die Quilt As You Go - Methode braucht nicht mehr gequiltet zu werden. Das Projekt ist dann gleich fertig.
Und es gibt so viele Möglichkeiten, ...... wie mit verschiedenen Stoffen, verschiedene Anordnung....gespielt werden kann.

Das ...
