Join me, Sara Snuggerud, for a monthly Stitching Cosmos challenge in 2021!

Are you thinking of enrolling in the Stitching Cosmos Online Course? Or maybe you already enrolled and have either stalled out on your progress or have not started working through the lessons yet. This challenge is simple and it should help you jump back in with new inspiration from other students around the world!

The challenge is to #1, enroll in the Stitching Cosmos Online Course if you have not already done so. #2, post a block each month to any one of the BERNINA, Husqvarna Viking, or Pfaff Stitching Cosmos Facebook groups.

In January, you are asked to post a picture of the block you made inspired by Lesson #1 or a picture of your Stitch Book. Click here to learn 5 Reasons to Sew a Stitch Book.

In February, post a picture of your couching Stitching Cosmos blocks from Lesson #2.

In March, post a picture or two of your circular sewing attachment Stitching Cosmos blocks!

And sew on…!

This challenge came to mind because I have so many Stitching Cosmos left-over blocks as “stage samples” from my teaching days. After demonstrating the sewing techniques in a live classroom setting, the pile of half-sewn blocks has piled up over the years. I was looking for a reason to get them out and get them finished into some new Stitching Cosmos quilts.

What better way to get inspired than to put out a call to have others join me!

Since there are a total of 10 lessons in the Stitching Cosmos online course, I hope this challenge will help flood the Stitching Cosmos Facebook group pages with inspiration that we all can benefit from.

If you have already completed your Stitching Cosmos course, we would LOVE if you would share a picture of the monthly block’s lesson from your finished quilt. Our newer students will love seeing the potential their sewing machines are capable of creating.

If you are reading this post in the middle of the year, jump in at anytime! We are all here to be the inspiration to each one of us.

It is going to be a great year! Comment below if you are “in”!

    I love this idea! I am already enrolled and awaiting getting my Designer Brillance 80 back from its tune up. Can wait to get started.

    I really like your blocks with the ombré effect and wanted to use something like that, but couldn’t find any (shopping mostly online this year). Any ideas where I might find some?

    Thanks!

    I’m almost done with my stitch book so count me in!

  3. Leslie McJunkin says:

    I’m already signed up. I have my first 2 blocks ready for stitching. Your directions are great for using the curve tool & sewing the curve. My stitch book is coming along nicely. I’m using my new Epic 95q. I’m discovering all types of stitches that I can’t wait to use.
    I think the challenge will be a fun wait to make progress.
    Thanks

    I am in the 10th lesson now. The course has taught me so much! I will try to learn how to use Facebook to post some of my blocks. Just know that I take this as a practice experience and have not removed any of my mistakes…future students will be heartened by easily doing better 😊

    1. Sara says:
