Scrappiness is Happiness Quilt Along Part 7

It is the seventh month of the Scrappiness is Happiness Quilt Along, and we can’t believe everything is wrapping up next month! 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. We’re not done yet, so let’s check in and see where we’re at!

Week 25: Patchwork Tulip Block

Week twenty-five, our Patchwork Tulip blocks bloomed bright! With this block, we turned social media channels into our gardens for the day when we all shared our blocks. Did you share yours with #ScrappinessIsHappinessQAL?

Week 26: Quick Broken Dishes Block

Did you break out in a smile when making your Quick Broken Dishes Block? We sure did! This block full of half and quarter-square triangles looks intricate and is done in the nick of time!

Week 27: Quick Dash Block

Run! We finished our Quick Dash Block in, well, a dash! Did you sew yours, or are you catching up?

We love how the Quick Dash Quilt from the Scrappiness is Happiness Quilt Book that repeats the Quick Dash Block looks. This scrappy design is for everyone, no matter your quilting speed!

Week 28: Sixty-Four Block

In Week Twenty Eight, we sewed Sixty-Four. The Sixty-Four Block, that is! This block is a great way to sew up your tiniest scraps and avoid fabric waste! What collections can you peek in yours? Share them and tag @fatquartershop so we can see them too.

Week 29: Spring Basket Block

Are you ready to spring into action and finish this quilt along? The Spring Basket Block is our twenty-ninth, and we only have a couple more to go. Are you caught up?

  1. I wish I could have sewn along but have had illness n surgery. I hope to make a blue king size quilt ( don’t know which one yet) for the master bedroom. I love 30s reproductions. My mom grew up then n she loved them too. RIP Mom. You are such an inspiration n your music is so motivating. Bless you u bring a smile to my face. 🌹🌹🌹🌹🌹🌹🌹🌹

  2. Hi. I love sewing this quilt. But I do get distracted. I will make the one block, then I can’t stop myself. I make another same block different color combinations, and I still can’t stop making more. Now I have about 12 or so quilts going made out of my scraps. But the thing is, my scraps don’t look like there going down at all. What’s up with that!?!?

  3. So cute!! One question: shouldn’t the 64-block have 64 squares? This one only has 7×7 (49)…

  4. Just wanted to say how much I’m enjoying your “Scrappiness is Happiness” quilt-along, especially Part 7. The mix of colors and patterns in your blocks is so vibrant and playful. Your instructions and tips make it easy for beginners like me to join in. Can’t wait to see the finished quilt!
