Have you ever had a fabric line that you just LOVE?!  For me that is Bonnie & Camille's Happy Go Lucky from several years back.  It's such a "happy" :) collection of colors and prints that I was instantly drawn to.  I snagged up a ton of mini charm packs when this line was released and paired them with 2 1/2" white squares to sew together as leaders and enders between piecing on my other projects.  The end result (after a couple of years) is this adorable postage stamp quilt.

It has all of my favorite colors: aqua, blue, green, red and orange.  The fact that there is no pink or purple is probably why I love it so much.  I know that isn't really normal for most girls, but they are my least favorite colors.  For the quilting I did a simple loop design using Aurifil 2600 in 50 wt. (my favorite).  I hadn't free motion quilted in a long time and was a bit rusty, but it turned out pretty well.

I'm so very happy that I planned ahead and purchased this cutie bias stripe fabric for the binding.  Isn't it perfect?

I also have been saving my favorite print in the collection for the back.  I have big hearts in my eyes for this one.  Those little pom poms are so sweet!
