Happy Days!

Are you singing the US sitcom tune now?  Goodbye grey sky, hello blue ....

Nothing much to do with the Fonz, these Happy Days are the name of Sarah Fielke's new BOM which is due to start on 31 Jan 2016.  (Still time to sign up at Sarah's website.)

It felt like a great idea when I was all mellow and rested over the Christmas holidays to sign up to Sarah's new Block of the Month - a piecing, appliqué and EPP project.  It seemed to fit in with my plans to just sew as I fancy this year and try something new too (step down piecing will be new to me, though I'm sure some other skills will be too).  I think I was enticed by more appliqué which I started last year on the Quilt Now BoM and maybe committing to a program will make me actually do it.

I love pulling fabric for new projects, don't you?  For this quilt I'm going to try a variety of low volume backgrounds, mostly white or grey based rather than cream, and a selection of pretties which are nearly all Lori Holt or other Riley Blake prints.  A 'Happy Days' quilt needs happy colours, doesn't it?

There's no point pretending I will be able to keep up with this BoM but I will try to do what I can and ENJOY it without pressure.  Actually, I'm very excited about getting started because I know from having watched one of Sarah's Craftsy classes that she explains techniques so clearly that it's a pleasure to have a go afterwards.

Bring it on!


  1. I love your fabric choices and I'm looking forward to seeing the first block!

  2. I'm drooling over those fabrics!! Jxo

  3. I'll enjoy watching this one come together :)

  4. so exciting! I am pretty sure you will be able to keep up. It sounds relaxing and fun to sit down and do some slow sewing.

  5. I've signed up for that one too am hoping to break into a long hoarded Kate Spain bundle for it!
