Cozy Cabins Progress

I actually got started on a new quilt!

These are three blocks I have made so far.




What do you think? How do you think they compare to the ones in the magazine?



The blocks are smaller than I realized. Each one is only 8 inches square. A twin size quilt will need 56 blocks. I want the quilt to be at least full size and preferably queen size, so I have quite a few blocks left to make!

I like it! Great job! I always enjoy reading about your sewing projects; you inspire me to do more!

I love them! They remind me of the table runners I make so I actually think I could handle a quilt like this.

You do such gorgeous work, Debbie!

I think I like yours better than the ones in the magazine - I like the colors better. It will take a long time, but think how accomplished you'll feel when it's done!

That's going to make a great quilt! It's always a fantastic feeling to see something you like and duplicate it. I love all the fun that goes into figuring out a pattern and the added benefit of making it in the colors I like.

I can't wait to see your finished quilt.

A great start! Your blocks look so good. And, let's see, a queen will take about 112 blocks, so at 3a day, that will be - - - -! But, you will do more than 3 a day. Good luck!
