This Way and That Way with Color Me Happy !

Hi Everyone!
I had to pop in and tell you about my "guest appearance" over at V. and Co. today... Well... I sorta kinda hi-jacked Vanessa's blog and did a little post...

Mostly it's about how much I've enjoyed getting to know Vanessa over the last 7 years... 

But I also shared this!

Isn't it fun!

I did a little math and added some blocks to my THIS WAY AND THAT WAY baby quilt pattern... and I love it!

This Way and That Way Baby Quilt

Vanessa's latest fabric line... COLOR ME HAPPY... is so fun!  It's a little modern with a little vintagey mixed in and just simply fabulous!

V sent me a box of COLOR ME HAPPY fabric and I got to play... This quilt is so fun, easy, and pretty quick to make...

Oh!  And this would be the third quilt I've quilted on the Long Arm - by. my. self. !  It's not perfect but it's pretty darn good if I do say so... I did a fun wavey line with leaves to go along with the leaf fabric in V's line... And I think it turned out super cute.

If you already have the THIS WAY AND THAT WAY baby quilt pattern and want to make a bigger quilt, you'll have to do the math for the backing and binding... But you will need 38 jelly roll strips (2 1/2" x WOF strips) {instead of 16 for the baby quilt}  And 1 yard of white. {instead of 1/2 yard for the baby quilt}

Instead of making 24 blocks for a baby size quilt, you'll be making 54 blocks for a lap/twin size quilt.  {It finishes at about 48" x 72"}

You can find my post at V. and Co.  HERE  and you can find the THIS WAY AND THAT WAY baby quilt pattern in my Craftsy Store as a PDF - HERE  {Sorry no paper patterns at this time, my etsy shop is closed for the summer}..

Happy Sewing!

Good job on long arm quilting it yourself. I am learning to long arm quilt and I found it much more difficult than I expected. Way to keep at it! I love the Color Me Happy fabric.

Looks fabulous. I have some of that fabric that I can't wait to use up.
