Happy Happy Thursday! Today is definitely a happy happy day because the fourth block in the Splendid Sampler series is called "Happy Happy!"
I had so much fun picking out fabrics for all of the circles for this block...it really
was like planting a little flower garden...and flowers are the best! Jen Kingwell designed this fun block
I haven't worked with circles this small in quite some time, so I pulled out my Karen Kay Buckley's Perfect Circles templates (I keep mine on an easy-open key ring so I won't lose them. These templates are terrific, and you can iron over them. I found two circle templates that perfectly matched the circle sizes on the pattern. You can watch my video tutorial on how to use a circle template to make terrific circles for applique'.
I did my back-stitching with a limey-green Aurifloss and used two strands. I thought the color was a fun contrast to my flowers and the vase.
I'm in love with each of these blocks. But Happy Happy is my favorite right now! You can find the pattern here.
Thanks so much for stopping by!
