Happy Flowers, one of ?

As I've previously mentioned, I have a little bit of yardage in the Happy Flowers line. Only time will tell exactly how many projects will come of this.

But here's my first:

And here is it's fraternal twin, yet to be quilted. And ironed, apparently.

If you saw my original plan for these blocks, then say it with me: "Ahhhh - so much better."

I just love this fabric, and even though my original plan for these two colors didn't work out, I don't for a minute regret buying so much. Look at this face - have you ever seen a cuter face on fabric?

If the front isn't bright enough for you, check out this backing fabric

It took me forever, and two stores to find something I liked for the back. In case these go to actual twins, I had it in my mind that the backing for both needed to match. I don't know why. But the whole time I was sewing the binding on this, I kept looking at it & realizing how very much I loved the colors & the pattern. There are probably 8 Kona solids to go with this, all bright & cheerful. I think I'm going to have to go back and get some yardage.

These will be going in my shop eventually, but I want to wait until the pink one is done as well. And, just between you & me, I'm still on the fence about that purple color in the pink quilt. I love it in the blue one, but I think a darker purple would look so much better in the pink. I'm going to have to look at it a bit more before I quilt it & make it permanent.

But for now, I'm linking this post up at Crazy Mom Quilts for her Finish it up Friday. I love that she does that - I love seeing what everyone has done.


  1. Love the fussy cut flowers in your blocks and that fabric you chose for the backing. These quilts are sure to be a blessing to some special little ones. Very nice indeed!

  2. It's definitely cuter as two separate quilts!

  3. I LOVE that backing fabric! I would go back and get some more of that too. Great job!

  4. Those flower faces are screaming to be made into Hexies. How cute!
