The Cozy Cottage Quilt Pattern
The inspiration for the Cozy Cottage pattern began when I needed to make a quilt for a bridal shower. It had to go together quickly because the quilt would need to be mailed to a small town several states away. And I only had three weeks to accomplish this. You can read the story here.
I knew I wasn’t alone in my dilemma. How many times have you needed or wanted a quilt but didn’t have a ton of time to put it together? That’s the inspiration behind this quilt pattern – a pattern that you can reach for time and time again, easily assemble a quilt with what you have on hand, and then use simple quilting to finish it.
The beauty of the Cozy Cottage pattern lies in its simplicity. Even if you’re a beginner, you’ll find this project easy to master. The pattern features clear and concise instructions along with detailed diagrams, ensuring that you never feel overwhelmed. Whether you’re an experienced quilter or just starting out, you’ll enjoy every step of the process.
What sets the Cozy Cottage pattern apart is how quickly the blocks and rows come together. As you piece each block, your quilt quickly starts taking shape. In no time at all you’ll be laying out and assembling rows.

I’ve mocked up a couple of seasonal quilt ideas using the Cozy Cottage quilt pattern. The quilt on the left is made from Harvest Wishes by Moda. The soft aqua, teal, and orange fabrics make this quilt both modern and traditional.
The quilt on the right is from Favorite Things by Moda. The softer reds, greens, and grays give a new twist to a traditional Christmas color palette.
Both use low volume fabrics from the collections for the background rather than a solid. This gives your quilt a unique and interesting look. With a simple pattern like Cozy Cottage, almost any seasonal fabrics in a collection would make into a fun and finishable quilt.
Make a quilt anytime!
Sometimes, a quilt just needs to be simple enough to piece, quilt, and bind in a weekend. That’s the magic of the Cozy Cottage pattern. It’s made to spark your creativity, clean out your stash, and bring a touch of handmade charm to your life.
