Three Happy Block Flimsies
Baseball, Butterflies, Sports
40 x 60
There's only a few quilts I make more than once.
I've made a lot of Happy Block quilts.
For years when the grandkids were little I swapped novelty centers in different sizes with different groups. I've even swapped Happy Blocks. Happy Blocks are pretty versatile and can be made with any sized centers and sides. They are great for novelty or big print fabrics and are quick and easy to make.
This year I've tried very hard to get lots of little bits and pieces, old odds and ends into flimsies. I still have a box of partial sets of Happy Blocks in a variety of themes but I'm slowly emptying that box.
1. Baseball Happies
I used a variety of baseball themed centers.
2. Sports Happies
Different sports for different folks
3. Happy Butterflies
4. Animal Farm
60 x 72
Six inch Happy Blocks with four inch critter centers. Some of the blocks were swapped and some of the centers were swapped with different groups.
My granddaughter Isabelle thinks she wants to be a veterinarian.
I'll save this one for her when she graduates from high school and goes off to college.
Whether or not she becomes a veterinarian she has always loved animals so that's why I made this with her in mind. She loves spiders and frogs and snakes and beetles and even mice. She loves birds and rabbits and fish and cats and dogs, raccoons and possums.
And I love her.
