July Snow Happy Heart Block

A little late but, better late than never! A new month means a new Snow Happy Heart Pattern published by Anne Sutton of Bunny Hill Designs.



I was too busy the first week of July to get started on my block but, this week it has been quieter and, I have had more time to sew. I had a great time planning and piecing my block. I had already printed out the pattern for the July heart, which features a cute little snowman holding a flag.


I spent some time looking at my previous blocks so that the July block tied in with the general feel of the quilt so far and, so that the overall quilt remains balanced.  I then cut out my fabrics and pieced the block together.


This month I just embroidered the name of the month and the word 'Happy' on the applique background fabric.


July is a happy month for me as it is my birthday month. When I started making my blocks, I had already thought that I would try and include the words 'Snow Happy Hearts' within the overall quilt design.  The month of January has the word 'Snow' and, July seemed like the right place for the word 'Happy'. The only other addition I made this month were some little star buttons to the right hand side of the heart.  You can follow along with all of the blocks I have made so far on the 'Snow Happy Heart Quilt' page of my blog.  There is a link in the right hand sidebar.
