The halfway mark

I really thought I was much further along on this quilt until I pulled the blocks out the other day and put them up on the design wall but now I've finished half of them. Since this quilt has 4 distinct sections, it will be easy to assemble. Here are the red sections, I'll play a little more with the placement of the blocks and then sew them together.

Before I started making blocks tonight, I was binding my first Happy Quilt. I made two versions and hadn't planned on making another top but as I was ironing, I noticed the pack of charm squares sitting on top of my pink fabric.

I've been trying to think of a way to use these (a gift from Deb) and I think a pink and brown Happy Block quilt might just work. But first I have to finish piecing the above top.

I forgot all about that nickel pack! You've been talking about a pink/brown quilt since that once we saw in Williamsburg.

The red looks good!
