Do you love challenges?  Are you one of those who is always first to get everything done?  Would you like to learn new techniques? This is for you!

This is a Keep Your Own Block that involves no swapping whatsoever and is for those who love a good challenge.  The rules are simple:

There will be 4 blocks posted each month on every Sunday morning.  The first block will be an easy block, second block a little harder, third block will be advanced and the fourth block will be a challenge block.  If there are 5 Sundays in a month, I will post a Bonus Block.  In order to make this work, I am giving a deadline of 1 week to finish one block and the current month to finish all 4 blocks.   The challenge is to see if we can keep up with the blocks and is FOR THOSE WHO SIGN UP!  The blocks will vary from pieced to applique and maybe a few new ideas.

The blocks can be made in your own choice of colors.  You can make a quilt or other project if you wish but these are designed to test our skills and help us in the art of quilting.  If you feel that the block for that week is too challenging or if you want to save the pattern for another time, please feel free to do so.  

If you want to participate please post below this message with your name.  All I ask is that if you do participate that you post a picture of the block when finished.   Remember, this is Keep Your Own Block, no swapping involved and no Quilt Police.   I look forward to seeing your creations! 

About cozyquilts

Hello and welcome to my website. My name is Donna. My hubby is retired and I am still working from home. I have twin daughters and am blessed with 4 grandchildren. We are owned by 4 cats that love to supervise and are very nosy. I have been quilting since 1996. In addition to making quilts for my family and friends, I also make charity quilts for Marjoree Mason Center and Valley Children's Hospital. Marjoree Mason Center is a local organization here that helps and supports battered and abused women and children get out of abusive relationships. Every Christmas I make several baby quilts for the women, along with a small stuffed animal. Valley Children's Hospital is a new venture for me that just started this year. Every month or so I drop off a couple of quilts along with a small toy, for the children. I use a lot of bright, fun fabrics to help cheer them up. I do special order quilts but please be advised in advance as I work full-time in addition to quilting, I only do a few during the year. Also, it may take up to 6 months to a year to completely finish a quilt as my sewing time is limited. I only do applique or patchwork and will incorporate machine embroidery into my patterns, when requested. Thank you for visiting and I hope to see you and friends again soon.
