Let me clarify that title . . . We have TWO big bundles to give away!!

(Are you happy dancing yet?)

Padsworth says that I'd better warn you there are lots of pictures ahead. You might want to grab your cuppa:

And maybe a snack:

And settle in for some fun!

Most of you have seen the photos of the Lilypadquilting team working on our project for the Happy Town fabric line designed by our fav, Jacquelynne Steves of The Noble Wife fame. We be havin' fun, as they say! (grin)

Here (imagine a beautiful trumpet flourish here, and maybe some angelic voices, too) is our Phase I completed:

This is going to be one portion of our quilt for the Quilts for Kids effort!

Wanna see some closeups?

Aw, please, say you want to see 'em!  (It will make the team so happy.)

OK, here we go . . .

The Happy Town fabric is so cute.

Just look at some of these!
I chose the red dot for my dozer and my tow truck, and embellished them a little:

I'll be posting a tutorial for this project in the next few days, with line drawing patterns for the heavy equipment and for the letters!

The tow truck is hoisting the letter "H" in Happy Town, and the dozer is pushing the "n" into place!

A tow truck can't see what he is doing without headlights, can he?

And he wouldn't consider himself to be well-dressed without his hubcaps:

The balloons are a motif that I saw on the Happy Town panel that Jacquelynne created, and I repeated it for this section of the quilt:

Here are some close-ups of the letters:

I'll show you some more when the tutorial is posted, and I"ll give you some tips to help create your own Happy Town project!
