UnBoxed - Happy Days
UnBoxed - Happy Days
Hello! Sherri from A Quilting Life here today to share a little bit about our Happy Days collection. If you’re not familiar with us, we are a mother-daughter design team living in southern Nevada. We’re both smitten with all things quilts and quilting, and are excited to introduce you to this fun collection.
Chelsi and I both design patterns and have been sewing up a storm with these fabrics—I believe between the two of us, we have made over a dozen quilts using this versatile collection.
I love hexagons and English paper piecing, and am thrilled to be able to share my Sweet Grandmother’s Flower Garden pattern with you. Using the Moda Honeycombs that go along with this quilt makes the cutting go extra quickly. This quilt finishes at 60 ½” x 60 ½”.
My Beach House row quilt which finishes at 50 ½” x 59 ½” is another favorite design. It also utilizes just a few Grandmother’s Flower Garden Blocks and is a perfect introduction to the technique. This quilt makes a great block of the month project, too!
Summer Stroll uses a Layer Cake and 2 Honeybuns—so this one is a real time-saver as well. This quilt finishes at 67” x 67”.
Finally, I have a quilt called Nine-Patch Square Dance which was just published in the April issue of American Patchwork & Quilting. This quilt uses Honeybuns along with a charm pack and would be super easy to kit for those wanting to make this magazine quilt.

Chelsi also designed some beautiful new quilts with our Happy Days fabrics. Her Botanical Garden is my personal favorite—I had a lot of fun piecing this one for her.
It's even prettier quilted.
Chelsi’s Land I Love row quilt finishes at 57” x 55” and uses fat-eighths. It has a fun patriotic flare which works well with this collection.
