Can I get a Whoop-Whoop?? It's Giveaway Time!!

Hi, all!


Well, the time has arrived - for our very first Whoop Whoop Friday Giveaway!!  Remember last week I mentioned four good friends....  in the forest....  



                                                  ......worried about lions.....


and tigers...... and bears........OH MY!!


Well, there's nothing to worry about here - because we don't have lions, or tigers, or bears - - - - we've got........






Anyone interested in taking home all these fabulous goodies?  There's two charm packs, 13 fat quarters, four one-yard cuts of fabric, and a brand new, still-in-the-plastic copy of Quiltmaker!  Here's four different ways to enter - use one or all to get as many chances as you want!

1.  Link up to the linky party below showing us what you accomplished this week.  If you're new to the linky party, remember, it doesn't have to be a finish - just something you did a little happy dance about this week!  (You can find out more about Whoop Whoop Fridays by clicking the tab at the top of this blog.)  I'll leave the linky party open until Sunday night at midnight, CST so everyone has a chance to join in!

2.  Become a follower of this blog, then leave me a comment telling me you have, or to let me know you already are a follower!  

3.  If you don't have anything to link up this week, leave a comment on this blog telling what you'd like to work on so you have something to link up next week!

4.  Spread the word! Blog about this giveaway on your blog. Leave a comment with a link to your blogpost for another entry.

And those of you who linked up last week will get an extra entry, as promised!!

Winners will be chosen by Little Miss Random next Thursday, March 3rd and announced on next week's Whoop Whoop Friday post!

-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-

But before you rush off to do all that, here's what I accomplished this week.....

I made a back, quilted and bound this awesome quilt (flimsy made by my friend Connie!) for the quilt ministry.....


All those pinwheels are 3-D - only the long side of the triangle is sewn into the block!  This is just part of the quilt because it was too rainy to take a full shot outside today!

I also made a gift that I won't be able to show off until Monday!  I sure wish I could show you now....  ;-)

-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-

And now it's your chance to link up your accomplishments for the week - what made you do a happy dance?  Pump your fist in the air?  Cheer out loud?  Share it with us! We'll cheer with you!!  And hopefully next Friday, you'll have another reason to cheer - free fabric goodies!!

I can't wait to see what you all share!!

You know I am a faithful follower too. Never had time to link up last week. Haven't been sewing at all this week...just doesn't feel right with the tragedy and sadness in our country right now. So I hope you don't mind me linking up my last finish instead.

My Whoop-Whoop project is a pillow I made for a friend's daughter who LOVES pink and purple (can you tell?). I used Karrie Lyne's pattern. This was my first pillow.

I unfortunately don't have a finish to link. I "almost" did however. I waited for a warmer day earlier this week to take my quilt sandwich out on the deck to pin it. The breeze was so bad that I had to take it up and go inside. This happened 3 times! On the 3rd time it started raining before it could get completely pinned. Then it iced and snowed. So the sandwich is still just waiting...hopefully one day soon and then I can quilt it!

That 3D pinwheel quilt is very pretty indeed. Did you quilt it on the frame? How did you handle the pinwheel flaps then? That must have been difficult. Good work this week!! Whoop!Whoop!

Judi said...

Whoop! I'm a follower and that's all I can say this week. Week one of foot up and iced after bunion surgery. I'm going to work on taking some stitching out and make scraps into useable pieces and then maybe foot willing get to have some 15 minutes of play.

Hello,
I am new to the blog-world and don't have one yet. This week I finally decided to just do it! I am creating my very own string tulips from the cover of "Georgia Quilts". Of course I have never created an applique or string quilt before so this is all new.

Suprisingly, I have 6 blocks done so far and I am totaly delighted with the look! Thanks for the giveaway and I look forward to see what others are creating!

Amanda said...

Hi...thanks for the tip about seam ripping last week on my blog...I've been using it this week!

Do you have any hints for triangles? I felt like sometimes I would get six pieces of fabric all on top of each other and the machine didn't go over them very well. Do I need to think more about which way I'm pressing them?

I would love to be working on my granddaughter's quilt (she will be here Monday) but my grandmother has been in the hospital (we almost lost her) and I have to leave Sunday to travel 8 hours to meet my new granddaughter. Plus I have put in about 65 hours at work this week. Poor baby's quilt needs at least another 8 hours. UGH!!! I hate it when life gets in the way.

For next week I would like to work on hand quilting my husband's quilt. I don't think I can get it finished, but I can probably get some of it done. :) If I don't distract myself with other things that is. So I will try to finish at least one more of my quilted circle designs on there. :)
