Hello, friends! Today I’m sharing all of the details for the Happy Go Lucky Quilt Sew Along Week 2. Today we will be talking about all things 9-patch, and I also have answers to fabric requirement questions I’ve been receiving from many of you.
Happy Go Lucky Quilt Sew Along Week 2
Happy Go Lucky Quilt Details
- The Happy Go Lucky quilt finishes at 79 ½″ x 79 ½″.
- I used 38 fat quarters from our Simply Delightful collection for my quilt.
- The quilt contains a variety of Sawtooth Stars, Nine-Patch, and Churn Dash blocks with a lot of light and low-volume prints used in the blocks.
- You will need the pattern (available in paper or PDF) to sew along.
- Find the free PDF printable to keep track of your progress on last week’s post here.
Week Two Tasks
Today’s task at hand is to make all 50 of the nine-patch blocks–and you’ll have two weeks to get them sewn. There are 25 of each style as shown in the pattern and in the Sew Along PDF (darks in the center + outer corners and the reverse blocks). If you are able to utilize strip piecing as shown in the pattern you will have some left-over units. So I also shared several ideas for scrappy nine-patch blocks including the following patterns perfect for scraps:
- Scrappy Nine-Patch Quilt (and tutorial)
- Scrappy Nine-Patch Table Runner
- Beachfront Nine-Patch Quilt (also requires a charm pack)

Since there are 50 nine-patch blocks to make, I’ll be back in two weeks from today with thoughts and tips for the churn dash blocks.The nine-patch blocks go together quickly, and having two weeks should give everyone plenty of time to stay caught up!
