Happy Go Lucky....almost finished!

A hug and thank you to all of you!  Everyone is adjusting to a new normal and we appreciate all the love and support you have sent to our family.

Guess what?  We can put our Happy Go Lucky quilt together now.  As you can tell from the pattern it is sewn together in sections, then the whole quilt is sewn together, and borders added.   I had hoped to expand this quilt to be larger with some extra blocks, but I am sorry to say that did not happen.  But I hope you can see how to make it larger, or even smaller.  I think it is fun to play What If?  Just place some of the extra blocks next to one of the sections.  It might not fit perfectly, but you can determine the size of the additional plain piece of fabric or another simple block.  I would keep the additional block simple, and maybe even a simple applique.  If you are following the Splendid Sampler II, the blocks are 6" and a few are applique and would make great little filler blocks.

Here are some of my favorites that I am thinking of adding:
