Sarah Fielke BOM: Happy Days

I have always wanted to do a BOM, but I have always felt too busy to have a chance to follow through to the end. Now that the kids are older, I believe I have a shot!
So when I saw, that Sarah Fielke has a 2016 BOM, I had to join!

I have chosen to make this quilt out of only solids. A black background and bright solids:

The pattern calls for quite a few of these stars, so I am trying to get a bunch of them done - plus they are so fun  to make!

Matching up colors is my favourite part:

Prepping while the kids sleep, so I am ready to sew in the morning

The first block is a Churn Dash. I have never made that block before, but I think it went ok anyway

These are the blocks I have made so far. This is really fun :-)

That is a pretty neat churn dash block! Your colors are great.

The only quilt I ever made out of solids, was an Amish quilt which was lovely. I think your BOM will be very striking made of solids. I look forward to seeing more. :-)
