Happy Days BOM - April Progress

Check out these pretty block designs that Sarah Fielke has set for April's Happy Days BOM.  Aren't they pretty?  Mine are only prepped at this stage (i.e. fabric glued in place) but I've got some long car journeys shortly and, as I'm not the driver, maybe I can work on them en route.

I have been enjoying the needleturn appliqué on this BOM so far.  Even a few blocks in I can see a bit of improvement in my turning and I'm getting slightly smoother curves as I go, too.  Still plenty of room for improvement of course, but so far so good.

I decided to gather all the blocks I've made so far and was a bit surprised to see just how much there is already.  Three and a half of the eight and a half wreath blocks are stitched, 17 of 24 sawtooth stars are completed and I'm up to date with the two pieced blocks.  I really like these fabrics on the low volume backgrounds though I don't think this photo does them justice (perhaps a little over-exposed as they are right beside the window here).

Sometimes it's good to take stock and see just how far you've come!  Right, I'm off to stick those two blocks in a wee pack with my needle, thread and scissors all ready for my travel.


  1. they look good x I am always in awe of anyone who can sew/read/knit on a car journey... I can drive and be a sickly passenger.. full stop! lol x

  2. gorgeous, but I too cant do anything other than look out the window in the car

  3. Pretty is the word! Those blocks are gorgeous! You off somewhere nice? Jxo

  4. These all look so beautiful! Can't wait to see the finished quilt!
