Happy Blocks Finish

I finished quilting this little gem Thursday night. Trimmed, made the binding and attached it Friday night. Saturday a.m. I got up and finished the job.

I took it to the LQS for a little show and share. Tossed it in the washer and dryer. That evening I gifted it to my friend.

Friday night at church I think was the first time I finished everything I took with me to work on. I trimmed the little quilt above. I made and attached the binding. I added the borders to my double four patch. I dethreaded a quilt top that had been washed and frayed that I plan to quilt next.

My double four patch.

I plan to quilt it on the diagonal with wavy lines.

My next quilting subject. A baby BQ that I call purple cow.

I'm going to load the top as if it were the back then load the cow patterned back as the top and outline the spots. I am still trying to decide how I'll transition from spot to spot. Any suggestions?

The Happy Blocks were my IMG finish. I'm linking up with Patty at Elm Street Quilts.

Wow! You kept yourself busy. Lovely quilts. Congrats on the finished one. Love the little 4 patch one. I think the red border is perfect. I have no idea how to quilt the Purple Cow but I love the name. It is fitting! ;^)

I think I'd do an all over pattern. It's so busy that I'm not sure it will matter, except in the pink.

May goodness you are getting a lot done! Love that four patch quilt! For the cow spots I would just do a curved line to go from spot to spot.

What a variety! I especially like the scrappy four-patches. Congratulations on achieving your OMG.

Busy lady. Not sure which are the 'happy blocks' though! Thanks for linking up with Elm Street Quilts One Monthly Goal and congrats on your finish!
