Going Crazy Making Blocks

Remember my Halloween post? I mentioned it is my turn for my FCQ Equilters group.  I get to ask for a specific block and give my color choices to the gals and they make blocks and send them off to me.  

I asked for Happy Blocks.  They are very easy using a novelty fabric and a reads as solid go with fabric. I admit I've been going crazy making my own Happy Blocks.  First, I started going through my stash of novelty fabrics and then I pulled go with fabrics.  Here's one of my pulls. 
The only one I've actually made is the bugs in the center front. I haven't been sewing all that much over the last few days but I still have gone crazy making these blocks between everything else I've been working on in the studio. 

Eight blocks so far:
I took this picture late in the day so no natural light was in the room.  These are all brighter in person.  But I'm more than half way to having enough blocks to make a baby quilt.  I'll be ironing and cutting some of those match ups. Honestly, it takes more time to pick the fabric pairs than it takes to cut and sew them!  Mary Quilts gives directions for three different sizes of blocks.  I've asked for "Happy Blocks for Maine" size.  I'll probably trim my blocks to 9.5" even though they should finish at 10". Don't forget to check out other blocks/quilts Mary shares. She even lets you know which blocks are Go Cutter friendly. 

I'm looking forward to receiving more of these fun blocks over the next two months.  However, I've got a few things to work on for Christmas so I better not continue to go too wild making these blocks! I'll be sharing more pictures as I receive my blocks from my friends. 

I am linking with: Midweek Makers, Needle and Thread Thursdayand Can I Get a Whoop, Whoop. (Whoop, Whoop should be available on Friday.)  And, I'll be spending some time surfing to see what's been happening with quilters around the world. 

Happy Quilting All!  Bonnie 


  1. I don't have any novelty fabrics in my stash. You've got a fun variety of fabrics and colors.

  2. Sew cute! These will make an adorable quilt (or two.) How many blocks do you expect to get from your group?

  3. That is going to be such a fun quilt with all of those novelty fabrics!


Thanks for visiting. Let me know what you're thinking about.
