On a roll with Happy Blocks

After a very busy week I decided to spend much of yesterday and some of today making
Happy Blocks. Idea gleaned from Cathy's Sane, Crazy, Crumby Quilting blog.

I have made similar blocks before, using 2.5" chicken themed fabrics and a double frame around the blocks,

This time I looked through my stash for "Boy" fabrics, either 5" Charms or fabric I could cut 5" blocks from.  As I want to make a few baby quilts I cut an extra set of blocks and also a few extra
2" strips for framing the squares.
Today I finished sewing 25 blocks together and made this top:
I have set it aside whilst I think of a border fabric.
Here's the other set of Boy squares and the 2" strips for framing them.  Not enough strips so I need to look through my stash to find some more.
Now I'm off to find some Girl fabrics for another 2 sets of 5" blocks.


  1. This is going to be another bright & cheerful quilt!

  2. They are great fun quilts for kids. Easy to put together too.
