Fabric Requirements for Cozy Afternoon Block of the Month

Here are the fabric requirements for the Cozy Afternoon Block of the Month. Soon, I will be posting some ideas for fabric choices, just like I did last time for the Sew Sweet Simplicity BOM.  Also, we WILL have kits available for the quilt shown below, and pre-orders will begin next week (the kits sold out quickly last time! So if you’re interested, please be sure to order yours early.)


These are the fabric requirements for the appliqued version of the quilt (shown above.) If you choose to do the quilt with embroidery instead of applique, or with piecing only (no embroidery/applique), you will have a little fabric left over.

Approximate finished  size of quilt is 66″ square.

  • White/Cream- 1/4 yard (block centers) (Omit if you would like to do the piecing only version with a FLORAL in the center of the blocks)
  • Navy- 2 yards (blocks, sashing, borders and binding)
  • Light Blue- 1/3 yard (blocks and applique)
  • Dark Pink- 1/3 yard (blocks and applique)
  • Yellow- 1/4 yard (blocks and applique)
  • Green- 1/3 yard (blocks and applique)
  • Light Pink- 1/3 yard (blocks and applique)
  • Orange- 1/4 yard (blocks and applique)
  • Aqua- 1 yard (applique and setting triangles)
  • Floral- 1 7/8 yards (borders and setting squares) (If you are doing the piecing only version with FLORAL in the center of the blocks, add an extra 1/4 yard)
  • Backing-  4 yards (41/42” wide)
  • Batting- 70” square


Applique version: Supplies for your preferred method of applique (thread, needles, freezer paper, fusible webbing, etc.)

Embroidered version:

  • Embroidery floss- 2 skeins Navy Blue (1 skein = 8.7 yards, such as DMC brand)
  • Embroidery supplies such as needles and hoop

    I am thinking that I might like to fussy cut fabric, maybe kid conversation prints, for the centers. Can you please let me know what the cut size of those pieces is? I can start looking for likely images of the right scale if I know.
    Looking forward to participating,
    Susan in Dublin

      Hi Susan,
      The square in the center is 6″ without seam allowance. Fussy cutting will work great in this project!

    Oh dear I don’t think I will be able to wait for June. I have been collecting pinks and sage fabrics and I think this is the quilt to use them for. But June is too far away!

    I love all you do, but this one is so special to me. I dearly love hot tea or hot chocolate served in beautiful tea cups, as well as teapots, and tea kettles. Have been looking at various fabrics with the same items for a while. Whether I make the quilt at the same time as everyone else or later (getting two new puppies this weekend!) I can guarantee eventually this quilt will be made! I am so excited at the prospect – well expectations for the quilt and the puppies – are well above and beyond most of my plans! Thank you so much for taking the time to design and share this quilt besides all your other endeavors! You are a treasure!

    I just discovered you! What took me so long? I cannot wait to start this gorgeous project. I’ve been looking for something to hand quilt as I go, and I have found it! Thank you so much :)

    I’m not sure if I missed something or not? When in June do we get the first block?

    I am looking forward to this project. Not sure how I want to do it yet. I might turn my blocks into machine embroidery. Not sure. They are all going to be fun to see.

      Hi Tammy!
      Some people did machine embroidery for my last bom (Sew Sweet Simplicity) and they turned out great. You can do so many things with this pattern- I can’t wait to see what you come up with!

      Patricia- the instructions are step by step, so hopefully it will go very smoothly for you. Of course, if you have any questions, please let me know! I’m so honored that you are using my pattern to make your very first quilt!

One Trackback

  • […] This is a great stashbusting project because you only need 1/4 to 1/3 yard of each of the six block fabrics, then you can use the blocks however you want, depending on what other fabric you have (fabric requirements here). […]
