A Cozy Chicopee Quilt Finish

The Sew Mama Sew Giveaway is now closed. The winner is "Myself" all the way from Israel. Congratulations!



I made this quilt to use as a cuddle quilt for the couch. It's extra long so it will cover the toes of anyone cocooned in it! It makes me grumpy when I'm all wrapped and toasty and pop....my feet stick out at the end of the blanket? 



I backed it with a nice flannel so I'm hoping it won't get little fuzz balls as the years go by. The flannel was stashed at the back of my quilting closet so I didn't have to go out and buy anything. (Smile, Mr. White Socks!) A stash comes in handy!


I empathize with anyone who has to take photos under a constant grey sky!


It's sunny most of the time where we live. But during the winter we have a sullen fog that tends to linger. And today was not the best for picture taking. 



One of my favorite bloggers  sent me the MOST beautiful package of fabric. She knows that I'm crazy about Cath Kidston and how difficult it is to get her fabric here. I was in fabric heaven when I unfolded the triangle and there were more fabrics wrapped inside. I'll show them to you next time. I have a plan!!
See you soon! xx

What a gorgeous quilt! And such a sweet present. Fabric in the mail from friends is the best!

Dawn said...

It's very lovely! Great job!
Guess what? I know that fog! I grew up in Eureka and Arcata! lol

Patchwork and Play said...

Your fabric is gorgeous! Clare is a sweetie, isn't she?!

Shakey Stitches said...

Your quilt looks so cuddly. Great idea making it extra long.

Maria Wallin said...

Lovely, lovely quilt! I love rectangular quilts for the same reason, toe coverage is important! ^^

I'm constantly trying to convince my better half that a stash is good too with little success. His opinion is "better to buy what you need when you need it", meaning he's not helpful or understanding at all =)

eva said...

I love your quilt and the length can be crucial;-) when you have it to cuddle with! I think your photos are very good despite the fact that you have taken them indoors. Here in Sweden we have the problem almost the entire winter season, there is no real daylight more than a few hours at midday. Okay, then I saw that my comment ended up just below my daughter. She also found your wonderful blog!

What a fabulous quilt! I have a few FQs from that line--I think I need more, after seeing this. Great job! LOVE the Cath Kidson fabric, too.

Cindy said...

The quilt looks so cozy! Enjoy some calm time all wrapped up in it this time of year!

Heidi Staples said...

Deborah, this is beautiful. Aside from the corduroy for my purse, I haven't bought any Chicopee yet, but I may have to do something about that soon. The more I see it in other projects, the more I think I need it... :)

Helen Philipps said...

Your quilt is so beautiful, I love the pattern and your choice of fabric colours. It will be so cosy too with that lovely soft flannel backing. What a pretty parcel you recieved! Wishing you a happy weekend!

Deborah your quilt is so beautiful. I just got some Chicopee (gift from my hubby), and I have been thinking what to make with it. Thanks for the inspiration.
P.S. I hate too when my feet stick out of the blanket.

Hate the drippy fog too... Love your Chicopee quilt!

I love this collection, and your pattern worked so well with it! Now to get mine out of the drawer and decide what to do with it. Right after Christmas!

Rachaeldaisy said...

Ohh Love your Chicopee quilt, What a great pattern to showcase the fabrics. I bought a FQ stack in the Black Friday specials, still waiting for it to be delivered, it takes ages to Australia. I'm glad your feet will be cosy!

Béa said...

Your quilt is beautiful! The pattern is perfect for showing off those great prints. I'd love to know what this pattern is too please.

This is a gorgeous quilt and such a good idea to make it long enough to cover your toes!
