Each Happy Block measure 6.5" before being sewn into rows.
Each centre ( cut at 4.5") is different, cut from scraps and yardage and I tried to make the framing strips ( cut at 1.75") from a variety of fabrics.
One of the blocks features pukekos, a beautifully bright New Zealand bird. We see a lot of them when we are in NZ, one of my favourite birds as they are so distinctive with their bright blue feathers and Pillar box red beaks, legs and feet. Their other name is Swamp hen as their habitat is swampy paddocks.
The quilt is going to baby Jayden, born in NZ on 29th April, a new grandson for friends Miriam and Frank. So, the title of the quilt is "Where's Mr Pukeko?" and I hope baby Jayden will have fun looking for the pukeko when he is a little older.
