When Cathy M. told me that she had completed her Happy Shacks quilt, I asked her to bring it to the shop so I could take a picture.  It is awesome. 
I love how Cathy embellished this quilt, adding her own personal touches.  This cat is so cute! I bet all quilters have a cat like this.
Or maybe a dog like this.  Cathy added a dog with his “top dog” water dish on this block as well as a mail box with an address!
Outside this house is a Guard Dog!  How cute.  On other blocks I found a fire hydrant; a scarecrow; a house all decorated for Christmas, and more mail boxes with different addresses and a car parked in the street. 
This house spoke to me as it had this big button on the roof!  Keep on Quilting!  Cathy you did a fantastic job.  Chris (shop owner) said she thought it would be fun to use this pattern as a BOM and each person create her own unique embellishments.  I think that would be fun, don’t you?  If so, start searching for and collecting those items that would look good in your house or yard.  I have a million ideas running around in my head right now!  You can get the pattern at the Attic Window Quilt Shop.  It is Happy Shacks by Black Cat Creations.

Don’t forget:  Fall Fabric Sale!!  Friday, Oct. 19 – 10-8 and Saturday, Oct. 20 – 10-5.   There will be 20-75% off fabrics; 20% off books, patterns & notions only!

That does look like a fun pattern! Half the fun of making it would be coming up with all the little extras to embellish it.

These Happy Shack quilts look wonderful. Lots of scope to add personal touches.
I enjoyed looking at the monster quilt and blocks in the previous post, too.
So much colour. Perfect.
