Happy Houses quilt top

Earlier this year, I participated in the *Happy Houses* block swap. I finally found the perfect fabric to use for sashing for the blocks! Yeah! For quite awhile, I didn't know what to use, because the blocks are all do different. The fabric I found looks like grass! :o) And then I went thru my stash and chose 20 different prints to use as sashing corners. To me, it looks like little spots of flowers between the houses. :o) I love these Happy Houses - they really do make me happy! :o) Now the quilt top is in my hand-quilting stack. Then it will go on the back of the short sofa... :o)

Thanks for visiting!

It looks absolutely perfect! The border does look like grass.
I found my blocks the other day but put them back in my to do stack. I guess I should get busy. :D
Have a great week ahead.

The green grass fabric really pulled it all together. The houses are too cute and your scraps in the sashing are terrific.

I remember those blocks you made! Your quilt really does look happy. It's like it's throwing itself a little party, complete with confetti in the sashing squares.

That quilt makes me happy just looking at it. I agree - the cornerstones look like bright flowers between the houses. Great job!
