Color Me Happy Block of the Month

I’ve spent the morning assembling pattern packets for my block of the month, Color Me Happy.  As I was putting them together I realized the setting I used for this BOM would be a great way to set the Deli Geese blocks together.

I love this setting! By adding half-blocks to the rows on opposite ends, it’s an easy and fun way to create more interest in the quilt rather than using just a plain 3 x 4 set.

Then, the assembly method I used is a cinch! The whole quilt is put together in rows- the border pieces are part of the row!

So for those of you that are stitching up the Deli Geese blocks, give this setting a try. It’s easily adapted to making a larger quilt simply by adding more blocks in each row and more rows to the setting.

Color Me Happy pattern packets are available on my website.

  1. I do like that setting, and the way it extends into the border in different colors. Thanks for the idea. Pretty fabrics in the Color Me Happy BOM, too.
