Last week, when we started this tour on the C&T blog, I showed you the start of a little spin-off project from My Cozy Village. I was using the smaller flowers around each block to make little egg-cozies in time for Easter, or general Sunday brunches if you are so inclined.

Here are the last steps needed to make the little egg-cozies:

7) After appliquéing the flowers onto the background, line the background with a piece of batting and cut out both at the same time along the template outline. Do the same for the backside of your egg cozy.

8) Sew together a front and back side egg-cozy with batting. I used a rather generous ¼” seam-allowance. Cut little notches in the curve on top to minimize bulk when turned right side out.

9) Make a lining for each egg-cozy by tracing and cutting two egg-cozy template shapes and sewing them right side together.

10) Place the egg cozy, right side out, inside of the egg-cozy lining as shown below. Sew the two together along the raw edge on the bottom, leaving about 2-3” opening. Turn the egg-cozy out of this opening and stuff the lining into the cozy. Finger-press and fold the raw edges where the opening for turning was left. Secure these folded edges with a couple of pins. Top-stitch around the bottom of the egg-cozy about a 1/8” from the bottom.

  1. I really wanted to take the class for the Cozy Villsge at Bernina Connection but had a schedule conflict. I sure hope it’s offered again as I really like the style of these quilts! Beautiful work! And I am still in love with your angel quilt as well. ;-)

  2. I love your egg cozy, just adorable. But I really, really love your pattern. Applique is my favorite, and you’ve put together an amazing project. I love any type of building.

  3. I love those cloud trees in the top centre block! Such a whimsical design. Your quilt is lovely and would be fun to make, a bonus would be winning a copy.

    You egg cosies are sweet, bit I don’t do soft boiled eggs, but I’m sure I could make a fun mini quilt with the concept.

    You always have to think out of the box! Congrats on your book release!

  4. Love your egg cozy pattern and will make some. My sister has an egg cup collection of over 100 cups, I have only a few but love them and use them.

  5. The egg cozies are cute! I adore your cozy village. I’ve never done applicable, but am very tempted by your book

  6. Looks like a fun pattern will great potential for embellishments. I can see possibilities for a raffle quilt for my guild.

  7. I love anything miniaturized and your Village fits that description. The details are very accurate…who wouldn’t want to just live there. Your attention to detail is terrific, and I really appreciate your work.
