Happy Go Lucky Sew Along

It's hot, hot, hot....almost everywhere in the USA.  So lets do something cool...stay in our sewing room, stitching away on a new quilt.  Put on your favorite music and enjoy your day!  This is a fun little quilt that is perfect for a baby or a child's blankie.  It can be made into a nice throw by adding wider borders.  Happy Go Lucky is a beginner friendly sampler quilt which measures 44" x 50".  I plan to add a few more blocks into the mix for those of you with more experience...you can choose which you would rather use.

First, if you want to participate, you will need the pattern.  Happy Go Lucky is available here and here  will be on sale for $5.00 until Sunday, July 22.  After that it will go up to $9.00.

Second, how much fabric will you need?  The quilt on the cover of the pattern is made with Island Batik Petting Zoo, and is available in stores now.  The quilt I am making now is a variety of 8 or more fat quarters I put together, and 1 3/4 yard background fabric.



Third....prizes every week!  Those who complete the assigned block or blocks will be eligible to have your name put in the drawing.  For those of you who complete the top by September 15th, your name will be added to a drawing for the Grand Prize.

Here is the schedule for the Sew Along:
July 25:  Greek Square blocks
August 1: Shoo Fly blocks
August 8: 9 patch and Cross blocks
August 22: Sawtooth Star blocks
August 29: 4 patch and half-square blocks
September 6:  Set blocks together and add borders.
