I realize I’m a year behind on this, but I’ve just gotten started making Hazels, and I gotta say…I heart Hazel! It all started about 3 weeks ago when The Blue One went to the quilt shop with me. He spied some lime green fabric that he ‘had to have’. I had no immediate plans to do anything right away, but I finished a couple of other things (teacher gifts x4) and the baby boy quilt top, so I decided to make something small. I whipped up the first set of Hazels last week and I wanted to add the glasses, but the kids wouldn’t let me. How rude!
Here are the first set of Hazels:
I had decided to make pillows out of them, and decided a plain back is just too…..plain. I had a ton of extra fabric from the first set, so I made another set to be the pillow backs:
I’ve decided that the Hazels on the ‘back’ of the pillows are MY Hazels, so…
When I showed the kids tonight, they both decided that they liked the glasses (of course they would!), but I’m not adding them to their Hazels. I love how they look, but I am not a fan of doing applique! My edges aren’t perfect, but heck…nothing I ever do is ever perfect, so I’m OK with it.
It’s going to be a super busy week and I’m not sure if I can get the fronts quilted and the entire things turned into pillows this week, but I’m well underway.
I’m thinking of buying the pattern for the big giant Hazel and making a wall hanging (the baby-sized version) to put up in my cube at work. That one would have hot pink glasses, because I have some that I wear sometimes! How cute would that be?
So Cute! I agree, I vote for the glasses!
🙂 I have to agree – love them!
These are great! I’ve never seen Hazels before – thanks for sharing 🙂
Now you have to google them – there are so many gorgeous Hazels out there. Thanks for stopping by.
Yes, yes, yes to quilts in cubes! And really, if you can match a quilt to your hot pink glasses, you pretty much HAVE to do it. Your Hazels look great! I have some Fancy Foxes calling my name, but they don’t know what color they want to be.
I’m pretty sure I have the right pink for glasses, just need to find a suitably funky fabric for the spikes. It will be a fun one!
I just love the Hazels, The glasses are super cute and my favorite look too! I so want to make one for a baby quilt.
I couldn’t resist them any longer!
Thanks! And thank you for stopping by!
So jealous another person gets to do these cute hedgehog blocks! I gotta make one of these for myself, Might take 300 years before I’m done with all of my current projects, but eventually it will be mine!! I like the glasses, but that’s just the nerdy glasses wearing accountant in me 🙂
Why do you have to finish all current projects first? 😉 I used to be project monogamous but that ended several years ago, now I’m project schizophrenic!
Aren’t they, though? 🙂
Adorable hedgehogs! Great job!
they are so cute, I love the ones wearing glasses! Looks like you’re well underway with the quilting
so cute- I love the glasses!
I Love the cute hazels. And the glasses fit super !

Thanks! Thank you for visiting!
Those Hazels are adorable! I love the different glasses styles, what fun. And yes the kids had their chance with fun cute glasses, but no…..they wanted contacts and contacts they shall have 🙂
Exactly! No glasses for them!
They look SO cute. I agree with the kids, definitely need glasses. Visiting form FIUF.
Oh that would be so cute!! I think it really has to be done!! Especially with the pink glasses!
🙂 I agree!
Oh my gosh these are SO cute! And the glasses just make me smile!
Me too! Thanks for stopping by!
