Cozy Afternoon Block 4 and Giveaway !

Oh, I need to let you see it a little closer, don't I? Let's zoom in!


I love the mug on this block . . . no fragile cups for this quilter -- we go full bore here in the studio, with great big mugs of java or tea! (grin)


Isn't this little bird adorable?

Love how these colors look in this block:


Here's another peek at how they are playing together:


Didn't get my points exactly right, but hopefully it won't be too noticeable when the whole top is sewn together!

Here is another shot of the whole block:

  1. I love a heavy mug for coffee or hot chocolate but for tea, I'd rather have a tea cup. I do not like a Styrofoam cup. :) but I will use what is on hand.
    I would love a cheery yellow gingham mug! it's so pretty

  3. I prefer a cup of tea. A mug for hot chocolate. I can't have coffee, so it doesn't matter whether it is a cup or a mug. senstrings (at) yahoo (dot) com

  19. I prefer a mug for coffee and hot chocolate but a cup is nice for tea also.
    I love the fact there is a choice to applique, embroider, or piece the block. Mix and match! Whatever your mood is that day.

  20. I, too, like the idea of a mug....we have lots of fragile designs with teacups. This pattern is sew versatile in fabric choices, applique, embroidery, etc. I love it.

  24. This is sew much fun...it is a mug for me with tea or coffee!!! Thank you for sharing!

  25. I prefer a large mug for coffee or tea. Not the thick walled ones, though, and it needs to hold at least 2 regular sized cups. No plastic or artificial feeling ones, either...must be ceramic or glass.
    I decided to do the applique method for the blocks, even though the other two methods are probably easier. I think I was embroidering before the age of 5 and started sewing. I was able to make clothing by the age of 7. I stopped using patterns about 3 decades ago, as they seemed so tedious. I like to just look at a piece of fabric and "wing it!" I used the same wing it method for my first quilt at age 16, and the results were...uhmmm...not great. lisajcowell@cs.com

  26. I like a mug but it has to be a fine china one!!

  28. I love the mug! I just drink ice water.....the little dainty cup would slop it all over!....and your little bird has such a forlorn look its face! Love it!

    ReplyDelete
  29. I prefer a mug most of the time...but once in awhile will get out a teacup. I have my grandmother's collection. Love to look at them, and think I am afraid to use them too often...would feel terrible if I broke one of them!

  46. Only signed up for BOM two weeks ago but loving all the blocks so far. Loved the teacup with flowers block as I am an avid tea drinker. Just love having my tea in a fine bone china cup. Look forward to sitting with my stitching and a nice cup of tea.
