I got the pink Happy Block quilt bound tonight. It was one of the HeartStrings group tops sent to me by AnnG to quilt and donate. I have instructions on the website for several different Happy Block quilts.

Today was one of those days I wasn’t sure I was going to accomplish anything … and by accomplish I mean finish! I spent over two hours in the “bin room” trying to straighten and organize some of the fabric and yarn bins. I pulled fabric for two bindings, trimmed two quilts, got the one above bound and hand stitched down, and made a backing for the last top for my quilting marathon (to be quilted tomorrow although I did not get it loaded on the longarm yet). I also got some knitting done on the current hat during the Lightning game – which we won in a shoot out! Go Bolts!


  1. This is definitely a happy quilt. Pretty in pink and a whole lot of fun surprises to boot!! :o))
    I’m impressed that you even had just the right shade of pink for binding in your stash, Mary.

  2. I think this is what I need to do for my grandchildren. The pattern is orderly, which would appeal to the whole household. One done would be quite the accomplishment for me! I’ve tended to be the fabric cutter & storage; lately making fabric out of scraps, accumulating 4.5”, and 6.5” blocks for my new ‘parts department’, while playing with color.
