Have you ever had a fabric line that you just LOVE?! For me that is Bonnie & Camille’s Happy Go Lucky from several years back. It’s such a “happy” 🙂 collection of colors and prints that I was instantly drawn to. I snagged up a ton of mini charm packs when this line was released and paired them with 2 1/2″ white squares to sew together as leaders and enders between piecing on my other projects. The end result (after a couple of years) is this adorable postage stamp quilt.
It has all of my favorite colors: aqua, blue, green, red and orange. The fact that there is no pink or purple is probably why I love it so much. I know that isn’t really normal for most girls, but they are my least favorite colors. For the quilting I did a simple loop design using Aurifil 2600 in 50 wt. (my favorite). I hadn’t free motion quilted in a long time and was a bit rusty, but it turned out pretty well.
I’m so very happy that I planned ahead and purchased this cutie bias stripe fabric for the binding. Isn’t it perfect?
I also have been saving my favorite print in the collection for the back. I have big hearts in my eyes for this one. Those little pom poms are so sweet!
And here are a couple of post washing/drying/crinkling photos 🙂
My new quilt labels look perfect with this quilt!
This one has now been handed off to its new owner who I know will cherish it as much as I cherish our friendship.
