A Heap O’Happiness Summer Quilt
I just finished my BFF’s “Heap O’Happiness” summer quilt, click here or on the thumbnail for a larger view.
I used one layer cake (40 10-inch squares) and two yards of backing. There is no batting. I just stitched around the outside, right sides together, left and opening and then turned and top-stitched around the edge.
Presto Chango! A summer wrap in no time flat!
Here you see the Heap O’Happiness quilt folded up and on its way to the post office. It’s 43″ x 68″, but easily fits inside a large Priority mailing envelope (because there’s no batting) and only cost $5 to send.
“Happiness is a butterfly, which, when pursued, is always just beyond your grasp, but which, if you sit down quietly, may alight upon you.” —Nathaniel Hawthorne
