March is finally here! February has been a really long month here in Minnesota, I hope that March is warmer. At least the days are getting longer. I've enjoyed watching everyone's Cozy Cabins being built! 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 'Big Tree'. A cozy cabin needs a big tree to shade it. The block is the same size as the Cozy Cabin block. One thing to keep in mind is to do the background the same or similar fabrics as you did for your Cozy Cabin block. This will also be true with the blocks for May and September. (We will get back to making 'strips' next month.) The Cozy Cabin pattern can be found Etsy and on Craftsy. If you missed Chilly Silly Snowmen or Cozy Cabin, it's not too late to get the patterns. They can be found for a small fee on Etsy, Craftsy, and Patternspot.

|My stack of triangle squares, sewn... but I need to trim the extra fabric and iron.|
|I find it helpful to have a large work space to lay this block out.|
|Everything's in place and ready to be sewn.|
|All of my 2 1/2" squares are sewn, now just to add the bottom 2 1/2" strip.|
