Happy Days!

Yes, the days are very happy around here lately.  In spite of the tremendous amount of stress on a daily basis from the dogs and work, my days are definitely much, much happier than they were a year ago, so it's all good. 

I have found some time to work on the blocks for my dot quilt nearly every day.  Some days more than others, but even little bits of time add up.  The fabrics in the blocks are so happy that I'm thinking that Happy Days might be the appropriate name for this quilt, particularly given how happy I am feeling while I am making it.  What do you think?  Or maybe Happy Days Are Here Again would be better?  That was the first name that came to mind, but it seemed a bit long.  Maybe not.

I plan on making 90 blocks at a finished size of 8 inches.  I have been working on the first 30.  Here they are so far.  I will keep adding strips to each until I can trim them to 8 1/2 inches.


And here's a closeup of a few of the blocks.

Very cute! I'm glad you are fitting in bits of sewing during this season that is so busy for all you accountants. The dots are definitely looking happy :-)

"Happy Days are Here Again", definitely the perfect name. It's makes me happy to see this colorful quilt and read how happy you are, and with 1 month and 5 days left until 4/15th, I say that's amazing!

I'm like you, even just a little bit of time in the sewing room each day is a good thing.

Love love love the dotty blocks! You can't help but smile when you look at such happy blocks. I may have to play with this idea too. Happy stitching -
