Calling all Happy Quilt-A-Long Quilters

This is a shout out to all of you that joined me on the Happy Quilting Quilt-A-Long.  I need pictures!!!  There is going to be a super fun parade showcasing all of your work on the 31st, but as of right now I only have a picture from 1 Happy Quilter.  That would be a pretty short parade :)  

So if you joined me on the Happy Quilting Quilt-A-Long, please email me (happyquiltingmelissa at gmail dot com) your favorite picture of your completed project by March 30th.  It can be all quilted up or just the top sewn together.  My top won't be quilted, things just got a little busy.  (but I have 3 showings of my house today so I am not complaining :)  I will also be announcing the winner of the Burgundy Buttons gift certificate at the end of the parade.  Yippee Skippee!!

Thanks to all of you that joined me quilting-a-long.  It was so much fun and I had such a good time getting to meet so many new friends through it :)  Looking forward to the parade and have a Happy Quilting Day!!!

Pin It!


  1. Good luck with the house!

    Working on the last few blocks this morning then hopefully I can join them all together.

  2. What a fun quilt a long. I just love this quilt too. Beautiful. I do plan on making it, hopefully sometime this summer.


  3. Melissa ~ I want to thank you for all the time and energy you put into this quilt along for all of us. I've never made anything more than a baby quilt and while I had planned to do this one with you to see how far I could get that just didn't happen. Of course, I hadn't planned on being put into the hospital after being taken to the ER and then three weeks later being back in the ER with my husband after he tried to cut half his index finger off either soooooo yea, I got a bit sidetracked. This is NOT a good year so far for us. That's THREE ER visits already this year! THREE!!! I am VERY much hoping that is the end of that for us. LOL

    Anyway, it's a gorgeous quilt and I do plan to work on this at some point but I doubt very much even if I started right now that being as new as I am to 'real' quilting that I'd get anywhere near finishing in time to put a finished quilt picture up. HA

  4. I got my sashing fabric yesterday so today mine is getting put together! This has been such a fun quilt-a-long and and an eye-opener for me. I've never thought to break down the steps of making a quilt into small do-able segments (where have I been?). Now I can accomplish all those UFOs I have laying around. Thank you so much and watch for my pictures tomorrow! Terri in BC

  5. Oh Phew! I was thinking today was the deadline. Between sick kids and "technical difficulties" (ha ha) I haven't finished up yet.

  6. This is so pretty! I used to use the same signature. weird, huh?

  7. I just finished mine. Sending an email now. I LOVE MY QUILT!!!


Thank you so much for your sweet comments. I just love hearing from you!!
Have a Happy Quilting Day :)
