The fabric for this post was provided by Riley Blake Designs as part of the blog tour for Oh Happy Day fabric. The project and opinions are my own.
Panels are one of my favorite things to sew with. They add a lot of impact without a lot of time. One of my favorite things to do is to cut apart the panel and make a smaller project with a piece of it. This time I turned part of the fabric panel into a mini quilt!
This fox pillow, these Patriotic pillows and the table topper shown in this post all feature fabric panels.
Oh Happy Day Panel Mini Quilt
Originally I was just going to make a simple pillow using this portion of the panel and some half square triangles. Adding the border made the panel just the right size for four 3″ finished HSTs. I love the yellow and black together and it made a very striking block. But, I just couldn’t resist adding all of vibrant colors found in this line. They are so happy and bright and speak to my rainbow loving heart. I decided a scrappy border would be just the thing to let all these fabulous colors play.
If you are interested in making this center block- I have designed a printable pattern for you! Just enter your email below and you will get it straight to your inbox.

Head over to my Instagram account and you can see this mini quilt come together in my stories highlights called Be The Sunshine. It’s kind of fun to watch it grow!
The sentiment on this panel just speaks to my heart and I am so excited to put this up in my home as a reminder that we can choose to be the sunshine. Bring joy to others through service and love. Sometimes all it takes is a smile!
I hope you’ll join me! Until then, Happy Sewing Friends! xoxo, Amy
