February is here! Everyone's Chilly Silly Snowmen are so stinkin cute! I love them all! The fun thing about this quilt is you can choose to do it scrappy or not scrappy, I'm doing a little of both. It's a great project to use up some of your stash. But remember, tone on tone fabrics will work the best with this mystery design. This month we will work on a block that I have named 'Cozy Cabin'. Imagine, sitting in a nice cozy cabin with the fireplace going.... some chocolate, a good book, maybe a little glass of 'something, something'.... sounds perfect doesn't it. The Cozy Cabin pattern can be found Etsy and Craftsy. If you missed Chilly Silly Snowmen, it's not too late to get the pattern. It can be found for a small fee on Etsy, Craftsy, and Patternspot.
|I've added a couple of tone on tone fabrics with the|
background blue I have picked out.
|Here are all of the pieces and parts cut out for the Cozy Cabin block.|
|Here I am sewing corner to corner to form the triangle square 2 1/2" blocks|
|It took me an afternoon to complete this block, from|
start to finish.
|Trim away the excess and iron...|
|The squares are all sewn together... I made my cabin|
scrappy, but you can choose to make it all in the same brown.
|Add the 2 1/2" x 22 1/2" cream/white strip along|
the bottom of the block. Iron.
(The snowflakes in the picture represent the cream~
white yo-yo's that will be added later on, I have a thing for yo-yo's!)

Remember to post your finished Cozy Cabin block onto the Flickr account for a chance to win the prize at the end of the month! If you blog about it, please email me a link so that I can attach it to the Pinterest Board I have going for the BOM 2014. I hope you have fun with this section of the mystery quilt. It can easily be done in a weekend. I'm looking forward to seeing everyone's Cozy Cabins! I'll be announcing the prize for this month's block around the 15th and the winner will be announced on March 1st, when the next section is out.
