Introducing…Happy Days!


Happy Days is another quilt pattern in MORE Quick and Easy Hexie Quilts. (That's my orange and white Ikea rug under it.) I love, love, LOVED making this one - it made me happy, hence the name.


Lots on hand quilting with Perle Cotton everywhere!


And the center circles are surrounded with some lovely gathered rick rack. I love the various gray backgrounds - a background fabric doesn't have to be white!!!

Here are some shots of our weekend:


Hubby and I took Cooper for a LONG walk around campus Saturday morning. He was pretty good, but he just about did us in when the tried to join in a pick up football game with some young boys. We somehow managed to keep him in control.


The day was beautiful and the sky was a brilliant blue.


In the evening we were back on campus (without Cooper) for the football game. Beautiful sunset!

I spent Sunday suffering from allergies from being outside all day the day before. Bummer! Back on track today, working on the November BOM. Where has October gone?!!!!

I'll be leaving REALLY early on Wednesday for the International Quilt Festival in Houston. Yippee! I'll be searching for everything HEXIE while there - quilts, products, patterns - stay tuned!!!!!

Hmmm…I'll still be gone on Nov. 1….how about I post the November BOM a bit early? That okay with everyone?

  1. Cute hexies. Not surprising. Looks like a bust week end. I hope you have lots of hexie sitings at the Houston Show. I fell in love with hexies at a quilt Market a couple of years ago.

  2. So pretty. We were just 4 hours away from Houston, and thought we might make it there this year, but unfortunately my FIL has had a stroke so we had to travel back home. Enjoy the Festival!
