Splendid Sampler II: Happy Days Block

Hi! Welcome to my blog! For those of you who are new around here, my name is Chelsi and I’m so happy you’re here! Here’s a little bit about myself…I’m a mom to three beautiful kids, I’m a Moda Fabric Designer alongside my mom Sherri McConnell (A Quilting Life), I design quilt patterns, and I love to create!

I am so excited to share my Splendid Sampler block with you all today! My block, Happy Days, can be found on page 30 of the Splendid Sampler II book! Any day filled with fabric and quilting is always the happiest of days! Quilting has become a wonderful creative outlet that always leaves my heart feeling full. There’s something special about making a quilt that lasts a lifetime and will be cherished by my little ones.

My Happy Days block goes together quickly and easily! When designing blocks and patterns I tend to stick to simple. This block represents that perfectly with easy cuts and piecing that will probably make you want to make more than one!


I was so excited when Pat Sloan and Jane Davidson asked me along for the Splendid Sampler ride! I love quilting with an entire community of people! It makes it fun and inspiring!


Here are just a couple fun shots of other blocks I’ve made!
