I fell in love with this fabric at a LQS (local quilt shop for those in the know).
I picked the Happy Hour pattern again and got to work. I didn't really want to repeat patterns, as I had already used Happy Hour in my first quilt, but I really though the simplicity of the pattern would show off the fabrics well and be masculine at the same time. It is a quilt for my son after all. Plus, his birthday is at the end of January so time is short. Happy Hour is simple and sews up FAST.
Well, I started cutting and sewing and quickly realized that I had enough fabric for a full sized bed quilt. Ooops! Coincidentally, my son sleeps in a full sized bed. In for a penny, in for a pound right?
I still need to sew the border on. The blocks themselves are just 8 inches short of the proper size and I had 80 inches of the rocket fabric to make the border with. My advanced math skills calculated that I'd need 2 widths of the fabric for each side, so I decided I should cut the rocket fabric into eight 10 inch strips. Perfect right? Yeah, except for those pesky corners. Good thing I still have 1/2 a yard of one of the blues. I can cut corner squares out of that and go get more for the binding.
