Sew Happy - Sandy Klop

Introduction

I love working with color! Bright, pure colors, mixed and matched with lots of prints, make my heart sing. Perhaps it all relates back to my days as a primary-grade art teacher, but primary colors, polka dots, checks, and fun prints all work together to make fun and cheerful quilts.

When it comes to colors, I think most people notice that my favorite color is red. I use it in so many of my designs. So don’t be surprised when you see Yellow Patty Lucy on page 46, as there are no red fabrics in sight! But regardless of what I like, be true to yourself and use your favorite colors. Most of the quilts in this book are rather easy to make, so why not mix things up and change the color palette to one that makes you feel joyful?

This book is like a trip down memory lane. I’ve pulled together a collection of quilts that I’ve made over the years. So you’ll see some older fabrics as well as some newer ones, but overall, the collection feels timeless. You can make your renditions of any of these quilts by digging through your stash or choosing the latest collection of fabrics from your favorite quilt shop. I find the more fabrics you use, the merrier your quilt will be. Happy sewing!

~ Sandy

Checks Mix

Mix the checks and add three other simple blocks to spice them up. Toss together, bake, and enjoy! This quilt was made using 25-Patch exchange blocks. Adding the setting blocks in red and cream gave me a way to design a larger quilt and put my own spin on things!
