Happy Little Things BOM - Block 2!!

It's the first Monday in September (where did August go???)   and that means it's time for the second block  Happy Little Things Block of the Month!!!    This fun BOM is hosted by Jacquelynne Steves and you can still sign up as it will go from now until the end of the year ;)   And you can read all about Block 2 over at Jacquelynne's blog!!!    And so here they are . . . my Block 2's :)




As a reminder from last time, I am making two blocks each month instead of 1 as I plan to do a slightly different layout in the end. Which is so fun because then I get to play with more fabric combinations.  And I just love the yellow and navy of the star points in this one!!!  And I choose not to do any embroidery or applique in the center of the blocks, and rather fussy cut the centers :)



I am using Gretel Fabrics from my wonderful friend Amy Smart and they are just so cute in these blocks ;)     I especially love making those scrappy log cabin borders!!  Not only does it help use up all of the little scrap pieces, which I love, but it also is a super cute way to finish each block!! 



And there they are!!!  Two #2 Blocks for the Happy Little Things BOM!!!    And if you are quilting along be sure to share all of your Happy Little Things  progress on social media with #HappyLittleThingsBOM and #HappyLittleThingsQuilt  and add them to the Happy Little Things Facebook Group.   And be sure to check out  these other bloggers to see lots more Block 2 Eye Candy and enter for more chances to win the September Giveaway!!!
