Years ago I used to participate in a Happy Block swap every month. Each participant would send out 6 Happy Block centers (either 4.5 or 6.5) to each participant who would border 5 of them with 2.5 inch strips and keep one center. Then the bordered blocks were all sent back to the originator. It was a great use of scraps and you would then get a variety of bordered blocks back to put into a quilt. I quit signing up for the swap when some people failed to meet their commitments to return blocks to the owner.
At any rate...I have a huge box of Happy Blocks (my Happy Place) waiting to be made into donation quilts.
I found almost enough heart themed blocks for this one, made a few more and before you know it a quilt was born.
I quilted it simply with five petaled flowers and loops and swirls.
I'm not used to making machine binding but it is suggested by several places I donate quilts that the binding be machine stitched. I have found my machine's buttonhole stitch does about the best job.
This was my goal #11 for the Q2 Finish Along with Adrianne at On the Windy Side. (link also on the sidebar).
At the end of the month I will link up to Julie's Binding Blitz.
Today I will link up with Oh Scrap at Quilting is More Fun than Housewwork.
