Happy Block Quilts # 2 and #3

 The Happy Block quilt pipeline is filling up and I should soon be sharing very regularly all the fun quilts I am making using your donated blocks.

I have quilts #2 and #3 for you today.

First up is Happy Zoo.  I received a bunch of cute animal blocks and at first it was going to be Happy Safari but I realized I needed to use alligator and panda blocks to have enough for the quilt.

All the blocks look so cute together!

How adorable is this back.  I lost track of who gave me that fun tiger fabric but I knew it would look great with the leftover tiger striped fabric I used in the last block drive.

Happy Quilt number 2 measures 40" x 48".

How cute is this Happy Dog quilt?  This one is Happy Quilt #3.

I received about a yard of the colorful dog fabric and thought it would make some fun vertical sashing.  Before I cut it, I did a little quilt math to be sure I left enough fabric for the binding.

Karen donated this bright red dalmatian fabric.  It wasn't quite wide enough but I knew I had some B/W dalmatian dots in my stash.

This dog quilt measure 45" x 56".  I am sure I will have enough blocks for a second dog quilt - I will try and make that one a bit bigger.  As a dog lover, I would love a dog quilt even though I am an adult.

So many fun blocks are coming in daily.  The floor of my sewing room is covered with stacks of various themed blocks.  This drive takes a lot more space and organization than previous drives - but the quilts all make me smile as they get done!

A big thanks to all who have donated!

Oooh, I was wondering how the blocks would be grouped together. Great themes and quilts for #2 and #3!

You are going to have so much fun with this block drive. I think I spied one of my blocks. I forgot to take photos of my blocks before I sent them.

It's fun to find blocks I made in these cheerful assortments.
