Happy-go-Lucky...

Oh, how I enjoyed quilting this one! It's my 9-patch/snowball combo quilt made with Happy-Go-Lucky by Bonnie and Camille {plus a few stash pieces thrown in}. It was done with Charm Squares and you'll find my method here.


I do have a love affair with fabric and what made it fun to quilt was all the eye-candy as I sewed.


And the quilting was pretty simple. Straight lines through the squares and a free-motion design in each of the Snowball blocks.



I struggled choosing a border for the quilt. If you remember my earlier post, I was determined to put a navy border on it. In fact many of you agreed with my choice. But it started to seem a little overpowering for the quilt and I ended up with the aqua and a navy binding.


The back is one of my favs from the collection.


Couldn't resist this overexposed shot with the garden and the beautiful blue sky.


Hope you have a "happy-go-lucky" day too!

  9. I like the lighter border & navy binding. Great choices. What I love most about this quilt is how simple the blocks are--but when put together they are stunning. I'd like to make one.
