This was a quick and easy one to piece, just what I need right now. It’s a variation of our HeartStrings Happy Blocks. My Pink Elephant print was a larger scale so I cut my center squares 6.5 inches. Framing fabrics are cut 2.5 inches and I set the blocks 5 x 6 for a quilt that will finish at 50 x 60 inches.

I’m supposed to do some very, very easy walking which can be a challenge here at the house with all the incline but I’ve found the back deck outside my sewing room works well. It’s even covered which is nice on a rainy day like today.


  1. Some little girl is going to love this quilt. Glad to see you are well into recovery phase and obeying instructions. Get well Mary. xx oo

  2. {{Hugs}} a bunch, Mary! I hope you are healing well and just being kind to yourself. What a bright and fun quilt that will bring someone a whole lot of joy. {{Hugs}} again! ~smile~ Roseanne

  3. Hi Mary, So glad to hear you are coming along nicely and getting some walking in. I love the quilt…I have some elephant fabric that I was going to use for a pillowcase but I think I will make a quillt with it!

  4. Such a pretty bright quilt. I was so happy to see you were able to sew again. Enjoy the walk in the fresh air.

  5. That quilt is adorable. Good luck on your walks. When I broke my ankle in April, it was such a relief to walk outside on my little porch. Our outside is hilly and sandy so it took me awhile. Best wishes for a gentle recovery.

  6. Love your deck! I can imagine sitting out there in the warmer months, treadling, or working on hand work in the shade.
