Happy




   Name:  Happy
Design:  4" squares
Size:  37" by 42"
Fabric: Stash fabrics and scraps
Quilted: by me with Aurifil 50 wt in white in cross hatch

We had a great Fraser Valley Modern Quilt Guild sew in last Saturday and among other things, I got a great start on this baby quilt.  I like to have simple and distinct projects to work on at sew ins.  This baby quilt was just the ticket and I got a great start on it on my featherweight after completing a gift for my mum.  More on that later!

Yes, this is another baby quilt.  It seems that our son and daughter in law's friends keep having babies.  We hope it is quite contagious!  This is one is back to basics with simple 4" squares with a pop of black and white amidst the prints.  Very much in the spirit of Rita at Red Pepper Quilts.  

Once again, I quilted this on the diagonal in a cross hatch with Aurifil 50 wt in white.  Happy!



This made me happy too.  Two finished quilts on the sewing room counter with a bunch of sweet peas from the garden in the background.  Nice!  I wish this was a scratch and sniff picture because the sweet peas are so fragrant!  

And happy because we survived the Windows 10 upgrade and I was still able to upload pictures thanks to Husband!



Linking up with Amanda Jean for Finish it Up Friday.

  1. It's nice to see "sunkissed" by sweetwater. That was a great line. Cute baby quilt! congrats on your successful upgrade. That's a big one. Still suffering, myself.

  3. Such a pretty baby quilt - it will make a wonderful gift. And fragrant sweet peas are one of my favourite flowers too.

  4. Very pretty. Those pieces of black and white really do add something, I want to try that myself. It's a great alphabet print also, perfect for a baby quilt.
