Cozy Afternoon FREE BOM - BLOCK 3 and a Giveaway!

It's here!! Cozy Afternoon BOM Block 3 AND a Giveaway! The Cozy Afternoon quilt is from fabric and quilt designer Jacquelynne Steves! It's a versatile, easy and fun quilt that includes 3 ways to finish your blocks. You can piece them using a plain fabric square in the middle, applique them or embroider them. Jacquelynne provides a video tutorial for the two stitches that are used for the easy embroidery so it's a great chance to learn! This BOM goes for 5 months and includes the pattern for each block, plus the border and finishing instructions that are given at the end. Imagine curling up in front of the fire with this quilt, a good book and a cup of tea or giving it to a family member or special friend. Perfect!

This month, you get the free pattern for Block 3. Here's my Block Three:

I photographed my block on the floral fabric that I am going to use for the border and the large setting squares just so you could see where I got my color inspiration. I decided to use raw edge applique for my blocks. I did embroider the little antenna on the butterfly and I appliqued the leaves.


How cute is this little tea cup!  If you haven't already signed up, it isn't too late! Click on Jacquelynne's link and you will get all 3 patterns if you need them. These blocks stitch up quickly so you should be able to easily catch up!

Absolutely love your block!

Stitches said...

I really think these patterns are really cute and simple enough to make them quickly. My colors are pastels but love the bright colors too.

Kathy E. said...

I adore your Block #3! I usually shy away from using black, but it really shows off your applique in this block. Plus, the use of the floral fabric is just so sweet in the background! You done good!:)

gzusgirl said...

Love your colors. I am so enjoying making this quilt. I also made Jacquelynne's previous BOM, so I couldn't resist this one.

Denise8 said...

I am using some lovely fat quarters I have in my stash, pink, green, purple, and a few others I think that most of them are from Wallpaper Roses and some I can't remember the line!! Yes it has been a while back that I bought them!!

I love the fabrics in your block. I am going to use lavenders and purples in my block with maybe a pop of orange

Bobby Justice said...

I love your block. The colors are great. I am using my scrap pastel prints for all of the blocks. It reminds me of the different tea cups that my great-aunt would let me and my cousins use to have a tea party when I was a little girl.

Cecilia said...

Cute block! I haven't started mine yet, but I want to use Christmas colors. Thanks for sharing.

margaret said...

blocks looks so good, I asked about the background fabric on instagram, love it. Said I would not buy anymore fabric but feel the need to have some of this. Not sure what happened as I had not downlaoded the previous blocks but have them now, think I am going to embroider my centres

Caroline Pryor said...

Loving the cheerful colours, I only joined cosy afternoon yesterday and an itching to embroider the blocks xx

Thank you for sharing! Love the black background. Thanks for the chance to win!

Margaret said...

Love your block I am still trying to decide on my colors.

Judy1522 said...

I love the heart on your teacup and I am using similar colors to yours that I pulled from my stash, minus the red, and mine is going to be somewhat scrappy. I have been trying to find a fabric that would work for the setting triangles and borders and had seen the Mary Engelbreit fabric you are using but I think it might have too much red in it for my blocks. I am sure I can find something at my LQS. Your black background really makes the teacup stand out I like it and had thought about using black but just decided to use it rather than the Navy color.

margaret said...

Yesterday I cut all my blocks out, using similar to the original colours but purple instead of the navy, a lilac instead of light pink, turquoise instead of light blue and undecided about the aqua but do not need that yet, love your background took a photo off the screen and went to my quilting shop but they did not know it. think I will embroider the centre that decision will be made today
Trust the visit to the vet went well, good that Lola had a stroll around the garden yesterday

Sandy Lowery said...

I have pulled from my stash so mostly greens, blues & reds.

labfish said...

I am so slow. I'm having a hard time deciding which fabric from my stash I'm going to use.

DebraKay Neiman said...

I can't decide on my fabrics yet ... definitely will have some grey in it though and I will applique. crystalbluern at onlineok dot com

Joanne Larson said...

Most exciting things for me right now....just finished the NW Shop Hop and have 45 new fabrics to play with!!! So I have lots of fabric to choose from to make these cute blocks!

BillieBee (billiemick) said...

So cute Bev. I'm sitting this one out so far....grin.

judys said...

Can't decide on my fabric, but really haven't tried too hard as there is a birthday gift (or 2) that need to be finished first!!

Elisa Caminoto said...

my colors usually are country colors like burnt reds, greens, blues, Earth tones. I started with a cream background for the stitchery

tammy said...

Beautiful block love the colors

Bonny from Cat Den Mountain said...

I love that floral fabric - it just adds to the whimsy of the pattern.

Cheryl Barkdoll said...

I am at the point of printing the patterns out. I have been working on four quilts for our son's children so other future projects have been put on hold. I will no doubt use pastel colors or start diving into my 30's collection of fabrics.

Diane Nickerson said...

I have had a crazy busy few months, so I am saving the directions until things slow down at the end of next month. That's when I'll be making this quilt, so I haven't picked out my colors yet. I love your floral fabric...such fantastic colors!

cjmont said...

i plan to use soft pastels for a springy look.

Janice said...

This is a fun project and I am just getting started with it.

Judi R said...

Bought beautiful pinks, greens and blues but I haven't started yet!

Cindy Proehl said...

I'm using fun coffee and brown fabrics...lots of "mocha" and chocolate and coffee and tea prints... seems right for these patterns!

mboykin said...

I am using fabrics from my stash so it is green, orange, blue and yellow with a variety of others for the appliqué.

Linda Molden said...

I am using fabrics from my stash, so it will have lots of colors.

boilermaker said...

I am running slow on this project. Still haven't selected my fabric. I should get off the computer and go do that right now.

Maureeneh said...

I am using pink, green and blue in my blocks.

Debra Walsh said...

My blocks are made up of periwinkle, deep purple, bright green, orange, yellow and pinks. Sounds crazy but I am really happy with how bright and cheery the blocks are coming out.

Jill Hicks said...

I haven't started yet, but I love the designs.

Bert said...

Looks great. Love your choice of fabrics.

carol mcnab said...

Great looking block.

Ms Amy said...

I'm using bright colors from my fabric stash.

Marie Atkinson said...

Haven't chosen my colors yet but pink green and yellow will certainly be among them. I love Jacquelynnes cute little appliqués.

stichnRN said...

i haven't had a chance to start mine yet, but have a quilt retreat in Sept with the theme.... QUIL-TEA. i am going to make some blocks as door prizes as small wall hangings or maybe using the cup for a mug rug or on a tea cozy. the colors will be soft pastels.
not that i have got past some other projects i can get started on the ones i want to make for retreat!

Debra Ingle said...

I Love your block material choices, just beautiful,, I haven't started my blocks yet, I am thinking of using Pastels, pinks, greens and blues, with florals..will be starting it tomorrow..

Junebug said...

I really love the colors you chose. As usual, I am running very far behind. I am leaning towards pinks and blues, but will just have to play with what turns up in my sewing room; fabric folding and finishing some other projects are high on my list also.LOL!

Janet Sabol said...

Thank you for sharing your blocks. It's great inspiration for the many ways that they can be done. The colors are gorgeous!I can't wait to start my BOM!

Motherdragon's Musings said...

Love the bright colours of your block. Running late with my blocks :(

Lee said...

Your block turned out wonderful!

sewsilly said...

I am going to enter, even though Jacquelynne mentioned on her blog that you don't have to be in the block challenge to enter this giveaway. I just have too much going on and cannot participate, but if I was able to participate, I would most definitely use yellows for sunshine, oranges and greens. Something nice and bright to remind me of the sun coming up in the morning and shining on all of the flowers.

Diane Antle said...

I haven't started the blocks yet so I'm not sure what colors I'll choose. But I really like your color choices....might use the same.

Karen said...

I'm using a variety of bright pastels...some batiks and some 30's reproduction prints.

Leigh said...

I am one of those who is a late starter. But since you asked right now thinking about trying to use up all those fat quarters and other miscellaneous fabrics in my stash so I guess scrappy will be my look.

Mindy said...

I think I will use 30's fabrics when I start mine. I was laughing to myself about how many people have not started yet. A real quilter has many irons in her stash.

apple blossom said...

thanks for the chance to win this giveaway

KathleenD said...

Block #3 is both pretty & versatile. I can really see myself fussy-cutting the center block.
Thanks for the giveaway opportunity.

kupton52 said...

I'm doing all 3 versions of her quilt....for the applique I'm using older Thimbleberries....greens, burgundies and golds; for the pieced version I'm using the Laurel Burch cat panel in blues; and for the embroidered version I'm using pastel 30's repro prints. I just discovered her site and love it.

Heather said...

So cute. Thanks for the chance to win those patterns. I am loving that table runner!

Cathy Whitby said...

I haven't started stitching yet, but I'm pulling pinks and teals

Judi said...

I have not started my blocks, but am inspired by the fabric choices.

Bobbie said...

I know I've shown up too late for the party - I was catching up with bloglovibase y your post and with a self satisfied sigh said, already saw that, and entered... Then as I scrolled the picture of your Cozy Afternoon block slowly very slowly came to view and I realized I *haven't* seen this one... Last week my p phone was being super slow and I got interrupted in the midst of visiting the Cozy Afternoon blogs and missed yours! And it's so stinkin cute! I love the heart on the cup!
