I am sew excited to be working with a new line from Riley Blake Designs. Sandy Gervais is the creator of this whimsical line of Oh Happy Day fabric. This line was inspired by Sandy’s love for sunny days, “The bright sunny colors make me happy!” It features reds, yellows, blues, and greens. The way that those colors pop with the dark black background is perfect! An example of this is the main print. The line is bright and cheerful with inspirational quotes and is full of texture.
I recorded a video on New Year’s (when I unboxed the fabric); in it, I share the fabrics and how I plan on using them. Let me know if you like this style of post since it is new to me. To learn more about the Busy Bee Pattern click here.
The line also features a quilt panel with quotes like, “you can never have too much happy”, “anything is possible”, and so many more. The panel has artwork that looks like actual blocks, so you can make an easy peasy quilt that looks intricate. But in reality it’s made by just cutting the blocks apart and layout a fun design. I asked myself what would I do with a quilt panel and that took me down the rabbit hole of all sorts of fun projects. I played around with the artwork and created a fun quilt layout using blocks from this panel. You would have to get multiple panels to create it, but you could make some adorable shopping/book bags, wall hangings, or even a table runner with your leftover blocks.
Use the panel above to create a simple quilt. Below is what I would create if I had a few panels of the fabric.
