SIGN UP DEADLINE: January 10, 2017

DEADLINE FOR BLOCKS: January 10, 2017

START DATE: January 15. 2017 END DATE: December 15, 2017


Are you up for a challenge? Do you have what it takes to complete it? Are you bored with the same patterns and are looking for a change? Then you have come to the right place. Choose a block that you want to do and challenge the rest of the group. It can be applique, paper pieced, embroidery or regular piecing or something entirely new. The object is to get ourselves out of our comfort zones and play a little bit and experiment with new techniques.

To sign up, post your name, a few links of the block or technique, and email it to me at Each month I will choose a block to do. You choose your own fabrics as it is not a swap, but a challenge, and you can choose to pass on the block. Size doesn’t matter as it for practice. But you may have a nice sampler when finished.

Rules are easy. Choose a pattern and send it to my email (, I will call the first block on January 15, 2017 and you have one month to finish and then we will start on the next block. That will always be on the 15 of the month. When you finish your block, please share your pictures to the group.

Sounds easy and fun! Sew, join in! Remember to think outside the usual! If we get some get some easy blocks, that’s okay, you might need them later on.

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.
