Three More Happy Block Finishes

 Happy Friday!

I have been a busy girl this week finishing up a big sack of Compassion Quilts.  I have THREE Happy Quilts to share.

This first one is another one made from butterfly, moth and dragonfly blocks.  I also had an orphan block with a butterfly, so I added it right to the center of the quilt.  I like to find a home for all the bits that I save.  Plus, it gives this quilt a unique layout.

On the back is a pretty fabric that has lovely birds and butterflies.  I made this quilt top the same day I received the backing fabric from Kathy.

Quilt #14 measures 48" square.

Quilt #15 is also a new layout for these Happy Blocks.  This quilt is all about frogs and toads.  I had a bunch of green blocks and I really wanted some turquoise added in.  So I went to my stash and found a turquoise solid to sash all the blocks with.

This fun backing that Nancy sent is what inspired me to add the turquoise.  it is such a fun and playful print.

This quilt measures 49" x 59".

Dinosaurs and more dinosaurs are found on quilt #16. So many of you have some adorable novelty prints out there.  One of my local elves actually sewed this top for me.

I had my choice of a couple of dinosaur backings for this quilt but I decided to go with the pink/blue print that Sharon sent.

This quilt measures 48" x 56".

A huge thanks to my dog waking friend who held up all these quilts for me.  She told me to edit out the boots but I think they look kinda cute!

I expect to see a big stack of quilts delivered by a binding elf soon.  There should be lots more quilts to share next week.

Hope everyone has a wonderful weekend!

I love how well you are able to group the blocks into themes; the frog quilts speaks to me especially!

I made a batch of blocks for you, but I decided to give them to a new teen quilter in our Devo group to put together. We will be working on our encouragement quilts next month.
