Scrappiness is Happiness Quilt Along Part 1

We’re into our first month of the Scrappiness is Happiness Quilt Along, we’re sew excited to see your progress. Lori Holt’s Scrappiness is Happiness Quilt Book is designed so that we can create beautiful quilts from our own scrap baskets, and that includes the blocks in this quilt along. Let’s check in and see where we’re at!

Week 1: Buzzy Bee Block

The first block was cute as can bee and we’re sure you’d agree!

Week 2: Large and Small Calico Mushroom Blocks

We think the large and small Calico Mushrooms from week two are growing to be perfect in this scrappy quilt.

Week 3: Chex Mix Block

During week three we got to mix things up with the Chex Mix block with medium and light prints.
