Cozy QAL - the Middle Layer

Isn't this a yummy pile of color? These solids are my inner later for my quilt as part of the Cozy QAL from Alison Glass. The top and bottom layer will be jersey knit in a denim blue colorway.

I spent a bit of time figuring out the best way to lay out the fabric to make maximum use of the FQ bundle I had purchased. Everything was laid out on the floor and then transferred next to the sewing machine for assembly.

Isn't that pretty? I didn't have the right amount of rectangles for a perfectly colored diagonal but I am really happy with how this looks.

Besides, you won't see it in this form anymore! It will be sandwiched between the layers of jersey knit and then color revealed via reverse applique.

While there were a number of stencils to choose from for the QAL, I decided to make my quilt about things that bring me joy. I've got these 4" stencils which should work well.

The basting has begun!

Have a wonderful day! Patty


  1. I think you did a great job with the color flow and I love the stencils you will be working with. Have fun!

  2. I love the color arrangement you came up with. It's bright and interesting, and will be even more interesting as parts are revealed through your stencils. So your quilt will repeatedly say "joy, joy, joy"? This whole concept is really different, especially the use of jersey fabric which I would think could be difficult to work with. The stretchiness might be challenging to handle. But, it must be do-able if Alison Glass said so! I hope that uncovering bits is a rewarding feeling.


Thanks for visiting Elm Street Quilts. Looking forward to hearing from you!
