Hi! Welcome to Block 8 in the 100 Blocks Sampler Sew Along. I hope you’re finding that sewing one block every week is very doable and you’re keeping up with us!
This week, we’re featuring a block called Happy. It’s block #273 from Quiltmaker’s 100 Blocks volume 3 and was designed by Barbara Groves and Mary Jacobson, the sisters behind Me and My Sister Designs. They design the cutest, most colorful fabric for Moda Fabrics.
This block is a breeze to sew with just a square and rectangles.
Here’s our three different versions.
We’re excited to have Barb and Mary sewing along with us. Check out their block. As you browse their blog, you’ll notice that they are in Switzerland teaching right now—how cool is that?
And, be sure to visit the other designers sewing along with us:

See you next week for block 9. There might even be a little giveaway involved!
