Slow and Fast Stitching This Week from The Cozy Quilter

I like to have a variety of projects to work on at any one time so that I don't get bored (no chance of that for a very long time, if not ever!) so this week, as usual, I have a few things to show you.   First up is my fall themed comfort quilt block for the Elgin Piecemakers guild.  I have had that leaf fabric lurking in my stash for several years and it worked perfectly for this block.  (I even have some left...)


I have been cleaning out my fabric storage area and keep finding blocks and ...

Several Finishes this Week from The Cozy Quilter

This has been a week of finishes.  I finished the binding on the three table runners I quilted last Saturday.  My MIL has claimed this one.  It will look nice in her living room.  


The second runner will be given to a friend.


The third one will be donated to the church bazaar.


Next, I quilted and bound the baby quilt I showed last week.  I used some light green solid fabric for the binding.


The backing is some flannel I had in my stash.  I had to make it a bit wider so the orange stripe was added.  I ...

Sewing This Week from The Cozy Quilter

Monday sewing days are very productive!  I had my spinning 4 patch top done to this point before I left home and managed to get both borders made and sewn on by shortly after lunch.

I used some of the Kaffe Fassett "Millefiore" fabric that I had leftover from the spinning blocks to make the final border.


Next up, pin basting, and then quilting with my walking foot.  The backing fabric was in my stash.


I even used my bowl cozy at ...

Slow Stitching and some Blocks from The Cozy Quilter

Since I finished my Tula Pink 100 Modern blocks sampler quilt top earlier this week, I needed to find something to sew this week. I am trying to work on my UFO's for a challenge for the Oxford Quilt Guild so I pulled out the UFO bin and chose my spinning 4 patches, made at least two years ago.  Earlier in the week, I posted some pictures of colour options for a checkerboard layout and several people voted for the blue fabric over the other choices.


I got looking at the gray and blue fabrics again, and decided to ...

Sewing Day from The Cozy Quilter

I spent Monday at the weekly Oxford Guild sewing day.  I try to go every week, but was doing some volunteer work during November and December on Mondays, so have not been for a while.  It was fun to get back into sewing after the holidays.  I have been working on Tula Pink's 100 Modern Blocks sampler off and on since March 2019.  On Monday, I finished putting the top together...here is a peek at part of it.



I will be making the backing this week and then taking it to the long arm quilter's house.  I ...
