Scrappy Quilters Welcome

Welcome to our new members!  My, we have grown in leaps and bounds over the past few weeks and we are happy to have you join us!

As you can see, our page is a little bit of a mess at the moment and I am intending to clean it up by letting you know what our group has to offer!   If you go to files, you will find General Guidelines for Swaps, and A Welcome Letter in there.  Please feel free to browse and ask questions.E

What do we offer in the way of activities or swaps, you may ask.  Right now we have, we have the Round Robin that is open until April 15.  It is not too late!  You can go here for more info:  ROUND ROBIN 2015.

We have a Once A Week, Keep Your Own Block that features a regular block and a Paper Pieced block that you make and keep for yourself.  It is not intended to be made as a quilt but just to challenge and stretch our capabilities in learning new techniques and skills.  More info here at:  ONCE A WEEK KEEP YOUR OWN BLOCK, 2015.  Of course, if you wish, the complete set for 2014 is available.

We also have the 2015 UFO Challenge.  Each participant has a chance at winning a FQ from my stash if they are the first finisher for the month.  More info here at: 2015 UFO LIST.

We are also starting/finishing (depending on how fast you sew) a Mystery Quilt called Spring.  The pattern is called Plaid and can be found at quilters cache at:  http://www.quilterscache.com/P/PlaidBlock.html.  It’s a fun, fast and easy pattern, hope you enjoy it too!

We are also doing a poll on doing a Lottery Block with a block called Pineapple without the paper piecing.  It is a time consuming block but a lot of fun. We just ask you to do one or two blocks for the lottery and whoever wins the pot, gets all the blocks.  Here is the link to see if you are interested or not:  http://crazymomquilts.blogspot.com/2014/10/how-to-make-pineapple-block-without.html.

But most of all, we are here to offer support, friendship and help!  Thank you for joining our group!

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.
