The Spendid Sampler - Happy Happy

Thursday's block is an appliqued stylized flower pot named Happy Happy.  After I adhered the pieces to the background, I sat down at my Bernina 830, dropped the feed dogs and began.  I had nothing in mind other than maybe some herky jerky around the flower coins.  That didn't happen!  As I began to sew, rather than herky jerky, I was making inward pointing little e's, then out came these oval things!  I finished up using machine stitches for the stems and around the pot. Might be a bit funky, but it was what made me Happy at the time!

Keep on Stitchin'!!

  2. Hello Sue,

    Enjoying reading your blog this morning. Your explanation of Happy Happy is heart and soul remarkable. Its simplicity reveals what a real and lovely person orchestrated this block. I so admire the variety of all your quilt work for every technical reason, but also for your talent as a designer and cheerleader to other quilters. Thanks for being you, and thank you for your kind words about my quilts on homequiltingsystems group.
