Q87 - The Happy Bug Quilt

Afternoon and a Happy 4th of July,

The top to The Happy Bug Quilt has been finished. This is not a finished quilt… and I’m not sure, in quilting vernacular, I would call it a UFO, even though it is an “unfinished object”.

The dimensions of The Happy Bug Quilt are a 42 ½” (108 cms) square. There are seven fabrics, of 100% cotton used in the construction. Six of the fabrics are products of Quick Cuts series Stripz. The Happy Bug Quilt is an adaptation of the Cross Bows design by Kimberly Einmo as found in her latest AQS publication Jelly Roll Quilts & More.

Here are a couple more images of The Happy Bug Quilt.

I am posting the top in anticipation that if someone should like to have it personalized, which we can do with embroidery, we will be able to do that. The Happy Bug Quilt would be a nice Gift for a little girl or granddaughter. Please do not hesitate to contact me if you are interested in discussing details.

LOVE it! The colors are simply glorious and this quilt just exudes happiness! I love your interpretation of the Cross Bows -- thank you "sew" much for using the pattern and mentioning the book. You're both such talented artists!

Thank you Kimberly. The stash of Jelly Rolls certainly has my brain cells crunching. Andy's technical know-how certainly does justice to the extremely little pieces. Jim
