Definitely a Girl's Happy Blocks quilt!

I am enjoying making Happy Blocks from my stash.  They are fun to make, sorting out suitable fabrics for the centres and the block borders and the quilt tops come together very quickly.

I started a "Girl" top on Sunday, using quite a few charms from a set I won from Sew Sisters in a recent Scraptastic Tuesday draw. I needed 25 centres, all different and I found some that were suitable in my small packet of already cut 5" squares. I only had to cut a few more from stash scraps.

Then I cut some 2" strips from other scraps for the borders of the Happy Blocks centres and started to sew those to the centres.

Yesterday I finished making all 25 blocks and sewed them up into a quilt top:

Now I have two Happy Blocks tops ready to sandwich with batting and backing.  Both quilts will finish at around 38" square, a size I like to make for new baby gifts as they are useful as a Playmat as well as a snuggling quilt.

Thanks again to Cathy of Sane, Crazy, Crumby Quilting for the idea.


  1. A very pretty quilt for a little girl and a grwat way to use up some of your stash.

  2. what a lovely quilt for a little one.

  3. That's a lovely little quilt.

  4. How cute and girly and happy! One of my "used-to-be-pink-loving" granddaughters would have loved it once upon a time. And then she grew up and is no longer in the pink!
