Cozy Cabin

Cozy Cabin Bad Weather

When the skies look like this, I know that these beauties at the top of my to-do list are going to have to wait to be planted.  The thunder is rolling, and the house is dark, even with the lights on.  There’s just one place I want to be…

CC quilt with magazines

…cozied up with a warm, flannel quilt, a couple of new quilting magazines and a cup of hot coffee.  Does it get any better than that?

Our just-released August Stashbuster pattern is perfect for those dark, stormy evenings.  “Cozy Cabin” is made from soft flannel and is 90″ by 90.”  It’s the perfect size to throw over your bed when the nights get cool, and I think it would work just perfectly for one or two, snuggled on the couch with the magazines and coffee I mentioned earlier.

Our “Cozy Cabin” kit includes the pattern, plus fabric for the top and binding.  You will need an additional seven yards of fabric for the back.  Did you know that you can save 10% off the regular-priced backing fabric  for this quilt if you purchase the backing at the same time as the kit?

If you’re interested in just the pattern, it can be purchased either at Quilt Expressions or here.

  1. I don’t do kits because I love to pick out my own fabrics.

    I think it is fun to sew with a kit because the part for me, of putting together the fabrics is the MOST terrifying. you have beautiful combinations!

  3. I enjoy sewing with a kit because then I know exactly where I am going and what it will look like when I am done.

  4. I can get so picky about fabric choice, or so terrified of picking the wrong thing that it can take forever to get started. A kit lets me get to the doing.

  5. Kits were good when I started quilting, but sometimes they can be frustrating if the fabrics aren’t identified as to which piece they are intended for and you end up cutting up the wrong fabric for the wrong piece. Been there, done that.

  6. I like kits, they let me get to work on a quilt without the frustration of trying to pick out fabrics to go with the pattern. I do like doing my on things sometimes, but am always second guessing myself.

  7. What a great looking quilt. That kit looks like a must have! Kits are great!!!
