The Map Happy Block top is done. In the past, most of my Happy Blocks quilts have been “I Spy” type quilts with a variety of novelty prints but since I haven’t found the bin with novelty scraps I decided to use just 3 fabrics for these … they are so quick to cut and assemble that I got 3 done this month. Can’t wait to see what Stephanie pulls out of the hat for February.
The Owl and Cat Happy Blocks were 9 inch finished blocks but I went with 10 inch finished blocks on this one. One reason was to give me a larger center block for the maps and the other was that this is more likely a quilt for an older child or adult and it finishes larger at 50 x 70 inches. One nice thing about these blocks is that you can cut your centers and framing strips a variety of different sizes and they all work!
Here’s an example of one of my other scrappier Happy Block quilts.
Here’s a version made using Charm Squares for the centers.
And here’s a twisted version. One of these days I’ll do another one of these.
Whatever version you choose to make, these are fun quilts to make.
