Today is the release of the Happy Little Things BOM Month 4 instructions and another terrific giveaway! You can still sign up for this free block of the month hosted by Jacquelynne Steves here, and you can visit Jacquelynne for all of the latest information about today’s block and giveaway here.
Happy Little Things Block 4
This is the last block for our quilt and it is very similar to last month’s. You should be getting good at those half-rectangle triangle units by now. I’m feeling quite comfortable myself thanks to the great instructions by Jacquelynne!
Just a reminder in case you’re just joining me, I’m making all of my blocks miniature sized, so they’ll measure 6″ square (finished). I’m providing modified cutting instructions for each block (keep reading below); you’ll need to sign up for the BOM to get the rest of the instructions from Jacquelynne. My final layout is also slightly different and it includes the words “Winter Friends” appliqued in the border. This wall hanging will measure 23″ x 31″.
Now that I have all four blocks finished, I’m going to concentrate on the final quilt assembly and applique words. Next month, I’ll have the miniature version finishing instructions for you.
Mini Version Cutting Instructions
The mini version of this block will finish at 6″ square. All of the assembly instructions are exactly the same as the original. Remember, you still need to sign up for Jacquelynne Steves’ block of the month here to get the complete directions.
You can download the cutting instructions for the mini version of block #4 here:
This month’s giveaway is a copy of Morse Code Quilts by Sarah J. Maxwell and an adorable package of holiday pins from Just Another Button Company. Thank you to our generous sponsors! The giveaway will remain open until Sunday, November 10, 2019.
To enter the giveaway, please leave a comment telling me your favorite size quilt to make. For me, I enjoy making lap-size quilts and smaller. Once in a while I’ll spit out a larger bed-size quilt, but I like to make quicker projects now days (instant-ish gratification).
