18+ Super Cozy Quilt and Blanket Projects and the Weekly Block Party Link-Up

Here in my part of central Washington it's been below freezing for WEEKS...and we've got more snow coming down today.  All I want to do is curl up in a quilt with a mug of hot cocoa until it warms up a little.  So I thought I'd share some quilty inspiration, especially since lots of us are getting back to some of our bigger quilt ambitions since the holidays are over.

January Skies Quilt - Free Half-Square Triangle Quilt Pattern - Queen-Sized

Even though I designed this quilt over the summer, I'm sharing it now because it makes me think of January Skies...all sorts of shades of grey, with some yellow sunshine peaking through...with the light sometimes fractured through ice crystals on the window panes.  Through the grey there's lots of promise of a new year starting.

Many thanks to Fairfield World for providing me with their amazing batting and compensating me for this post to bring you all a bit of sunshine.  All ideas, opinions, enthusiasm and fabric used in this post are 100% provided by me.  This post contains affiliate links to support my creatively and allow me to bring you more projects.

Christmas is over and I'm ready for Spring to come...but we still have a few months until she shows her face...sigh...

Just What You Need to Get Cozy and the Weekly Block Party Link-Up

Hi Friends...I've REALLY been enjoying a few days off with the family...well enjoying the break and helping a few barfy kiddos.  Sorry this is a couple days late getting posted...

I hope this week finds you warm and comfy! As Christmas fades it feels like we don't have SO many things to do and we can relax and get a little cozy for a bit, doesn't it?
 
I've rounded up some favorite ways to unwind and enjoy a little downtime. With warm drinks, hot baths, hearty snacks and soft sweaters - we'll have more cozy than we could ever need! Fresh bread and a warm blanket? Heaven!
I'm Susan from Bite Sized Biggie, cozying up to hosting this week. I work with a small team of bloggers who share tips, ideas, projects and recipes that make life a little sweeter and more manageable.
