Sarah Fielke’s “Happy Days” - Ten Month Block of the Month Program - Starting May 2017
Note: Note: This is the Blue Springs Colorway. You can sign up for the Tularoo Colorway here.
Description: Build your quilt-making skills one block at a time. Ruby Street Quiltworks is offering Sarah Fielke’s extremely happy “Happy Days” Block of the Month. Spring is the perfect time to start!
The quilt is a happy, scrappy, jumble of images, styles and techniques. How do you undertake such a complex project? Our answer: One block at a time, one month at a time! Each month learn, stitch and create part of your quilt. Next spring, in plenty of time for Mother’s Day, you’ll have a finished quilt, an accomplishment to be proud of and a gift for Mom or yourself.
To make it even easier, Shelley and Kristi have selected the fabric for you. Kristi’s “Blue Springs” quilt features the fresh, cool greens and blues of early spring. Shelley’s happy, scrappy “Tularoo”, is inspired by Tula Pinks clear bright colors and set in a modern textured background.
Check out the gallery on our website, for individual images of the blocks, in both colorways.
We’ll start you out with Sarah Fielke’s pattern (a $ 70 value if purchased separately) and all the fabric you’ll need for the first block(s). Over the ten month program you’ll get all the fabric you need for the top of the quilt excluding borders and binding. (You’ll have border options to choose from in the final month.)
Quilt Size: The original quilt with Sarah’s borders is 90 ½ inches square! The final size of your quilt will depend on your choice of border options. The quilt, before borders are added, is 67 inches square.
Techniques: Traditional machine piecing, making easy bias tape, making perfect circles, using specialty rulers (optional), Hawaiian applique, applique, foundation paper piecing, English paper piecing, hand quilting.
Skill Level: Intermediate. Confident beginners with some quilting experience may wish to consider this program because the easy pace will allow you to take your time and gain skills as you go along. If you are a beginner, we suggest making practice blocks with scraps before using your kit fabric.
