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.
