There are some quilts that take years and lots of thinking and creative juices to complete. They are masterpieces. This quilt is not one of them. I started this quilt in the morning and was finished before lunch. SWEET! It is going to be a gift for yet another niece. (I have a very large extended family). She gets married in August. I am going on vacation in July so I figured I had better get it done.
This is the “Sunshine Makes Me Happy Quilt” from the book Strip Happy. It is EASY. It would be a great project for a new to quilting sewer. The next person who asks me to help them learn to quilt is going to start with this one for sure:)
It only needs one jelly roll and some accent fabric. Don’t you just love jelly rolls? All of that coordinating fabric that I didn’t have to round up just makes me happy:). For this quilt I used ModCentury by Jenn Ski. It is perfect for a cute, sassy girl and her husband.
I went on a sew-fest and speedily sewed the strips together in sets of three, reserving some out for the border. I sub cut the strips in rectangle shapes
I added an accent strip to the bottom of each rectangle and then arranged them in opposite directions. I sewed them all together,added a solid border, joined the extra strips on the short ends making one long strip that I sewed as the 2nd border, and finally finished with one more border. DONE!
Gorgeous! My SWEET niece and soon to be nephew are going to love it! Here are a few pictures I took of them for their announcements. Aren’t they just the cutest couple?

I’m impressed with how quickly that went together! What size did you do?
