It’s a new month – which means it’s time for a new block in the Happy Little Things Quilt Block of the Month!! And a new Giveaway! Yay!
Block of the Month 3 in the Happy Little Things Quilt is this darling flower surrounded by half-square rectangles and some little squares that are perfect for fussy cutting.
Don’t let those half-square rectangles make you nervous either on this month’s Block of the Month! I was a little worried too but they went together super easily. Jacquelynne has a great method for assembly and she’s left plenty of room for trimming, so they look great when all trimmed up.
I did some free-motion applique for my flower, I love the extra contrast the black Aurifl gives the flower. I also left off the two little leaves on the top of the flower that are on the pattern since I was using a floral there that I wanted to show off.
I think this is my favorite block of the month so far – I’d love to do a whole quilt of these! It is such a fun star block to sew up.
