It’s the third month of the Scrappiness is Happiness Quilt Along. We’re sew happy to see more of your progress. As you know, 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!
We’re loving the happy colors of Pat Sloan’s (@quilterpatsloan) blocks. She’s sewing with Daisy Fields by Beverly McCullough for Riley Blake Designs and some of her own scraps.
Week 9: Santa Hat Block
We hope you loved sewing the Santa Hat Block just before the holidays!
Week 10: Scrap Apple Block
We love how bright the Scrap Apple Block is and can’t wait to see yours!
Week 11: Scrappy Crossroads Block
During week eleven, we found ourselves at a crossroads in deciding which scraps were meant for this scrappy block.
As you can see in Pat Sloan’s version, this block is all about color placement and being scrappy.
Week 12: Scrappy Strings Block
Week twelve was one of Kimberly’s favorite blocks from Scrappiness is Happiness the Scrappy Strings Block! We’re looking forward to seeing how yours turn out.

Love working on these fun blocks. Some have challenged me but am learning.
I have completed the entire quilt top from the book and really loved doing it. I especially loved the scrap apple block and plan on using it for a full quilt made in red, white, and blue to be used as a 2024 Raffle quilt for my local historical society. The blocks were easy to assemble and look great.
