Hello Hazel!

It's so tough for me to resist a fun quilt-along that pops up, even when I already have way too many projects on the go. The lovely and talented Gnome Angel is hosting this quilt-along in February featuring the adorable Hazel Hedgehog pattern by Elizabeth Hartman. I have a couple of her patterns that I haven't yet made, so this quilt-along was a good push to finally try one. And oh was it fast and fun to put together!

And how stinking cute is this?

Mine is made all in Cotton + Steel fabric. (I have more of the arrow print in the mail, which is the only reason I wasn't freaking out about cutting into it. Crazy fabric-hoarder behaviour, I know.) I love how it looks like she's got a twinkle in her eye and a wet nose with the silver dots on the blue fabric.

I definitely want to make more Hazels, which come in different sizes from teeny to giant. I plan on making this one, which is 20" square, into a pillow. And keep it for myself! If you want to see all the amazing Hazels people are making in the quilt-along, check out #hazelqal on IG. Some are wearing retro glasses!


  1. I love the Hazel. It was so easy to put together. I am keeping mine too!

  3. This is so cute, I love Hazel. They are super easy and fun to put together. I so want to make the smaller square to turn them into a quilt.

    1. They're so fun to put together! I think it's the cute face. I'd love to make many more in different sizes.
