GO! My Happy Place Wall Hanging and Free Pattern!!!

 I am so excited to share a new finish today!!! It's called My Happy Place and it just makes me so happy!!!  When  AccuQuilt asked if I wanted to make a project using their new GO! Sewing Machine Die, I knew I just needed to make another purple mini quilt for my purple sewing room ;)   And you can make your own Mini in your favorite color!!!  There is a free PDF Pattern that you can download right here :) 

Isn't it just so fun to see how AccuQuilt  posed this picture to see how cute it is in a sewing room.  (although, I think we would need a bigger table to sew on ;)   I combined the GO! Sewing Machine Die with the  LeMoyne Star die to design this little wall hanging!!!   I just love how the sewing machine is center in starry goodness, cause ya know, I like making star quilts!!! 

I used White Paper Grunge for my background fabric and then 3 shades of Purple Grunge for my piecing.  Cause ya know, I love Grunge as well.   And if I am making a mini to hang on my Purple Sewing Room wall, you better believe it will be pieced in purple!!   You just needs some 1/2 yard and 3/4 yard cuts and you can whip this up in no time.   The My Happy Place Wall Hanging finishes at 22" x 22" so it is will go perfect with all your mini's.   

 I just love my AccuQuilt for cutting out applique!!  Can you imagine having to trace and then cut out those tiny letters by hand.   You also attach the fusible before you cut, so it is super easy to layer and stack your applique to the quilt and then fuse it .   And I love that the LeMoyne Star is pieced in traditional diamonds rather than HST's.  It just looks so pristine not to have a seam running through the center of each star point.   Below is a list of the dies I used, see which ones you already have in your die library and maybe add a few more ;)   

And when it came time to quilt it, I wanted to do something dense because the applique was over the whole quilt and I did not secure stitch around each applique.   Rather I decided to secure stitch it with the quilting.  So a nice dense crosshatch keeps all of the applique nice and neat.   And of course,  I love all of the texture it adds to the quilt as well.   

And that is my My Happy Place Wall Hanging mini quilt.   I hope you love it as much as I do ;)   Isn't this picture AccuQuilt took of it just so great!!!  And if you want to make your own, (in your favorite color)  you can download the free PDF My Happy Place Pattern Here.   And when you are done I would love to see it!!!    You can share a picture on social media with #happyquiltingwithmc and tag me at @happyquiltingmc or you can always email me a picture at  I can't wait to see your My Happy Place Wall Hanging mini quilts!!! 

Oh, and fun little side note . . . if you want to see this shared on YouTube, you can visit the Die Launch video.  It is shared towards the end of the show at 48:20 minutes in :)  It is just so fun to see your projects loved so much, just makes me smile.   

I hope you all have a very Happy Quilting Day!!!

  1. What a perfect addition to your quilting room and with Grunge fabrics, oh so marvelous.
    I don’t have an AccuCut system, but could easily replicate this with some creativeness. Thanks again for inspiration.
