Can I get a Whoop-Whoop?? Anticipation!!

Hi, all!!


Happy Friday!!  It's been a busy week, for me at least.  But I've got a fun finish to show off today - all bundled up in a lot of anticipation!




Anticipation, because my daughter is pregnant and due around the end of the month - so we are anticipating a new granddaughter, Emmalyn Elise!  




This is the quilt I made for little Emmie.  I used Cherri House's "Welcome Spring" pattern (you can see it here) and some of Kate Spain's beautiful Good Fortune, mixed with Kona White.




And I had so much fun quilting this - can you see the design?  Each print row has alternating hearts and the word "love".  At the very bottom right corner of the quilt, instead of following the last "love" with hearts, I wrote "nana" - so it's signed on the front of the quilt "love nana"!  Did you know you can get writer's cramp while quilting? I'm living proof!!




And here's the back - a beautiful piece of quilter's flannel in green and purple with a strip of the prints from the front running across it.  So soft and cuddly!


Hopefully soon I'll be posting pictures of our new granddaughter with her big sister!  Lilli is very excited - she even learned how to change a diaper this weekend at "Big Sister Class" and says she'll change all the wet diapers, but not the "poopy" ones!  Smart kid!!


*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*

So that's my whoop whoop for the week - but now it's time to give someone else a chance to whoop a little!  It's time to draw a winner for the "Pass It On" box.....  




Lots of you really seem to want this box, and I don't blame you...... so let's see where it's going!


The Random Number Generator picked #14.....

I have been MIA lately...work work and work! How exciting for you all Sarah. I bet Lilly is sooooo excited. Can't wait to see the new addition and the proud big sister. I have been too busy to get up to much...have done some bee blocks but that's about it.

Sarah, such a fun quilt and the quilting is just perfect. The fabrics are great and I'm sure it will become a great treasure. And for Lilli--a Big Sister Class--how cute is that!

Congrats to you Terri!

Hi Sarah, love the quilt you made for your new (to be) granddaughter. So pretty.

Hope it was ok for me to post my giveaway for my blog anniversary. I didn't have a new quilt item to post.

I *love* this, especially the hearts. I just started FMQ and I have been practicing hearts like crazy! (They generally look more like pears, but I'm working on it!)

I'm linking up with you for the first time today. Looking forward to looking at everyone's beautiful works throughout the day today!

Congratulations (in advance) on the birth of your granddaughter!
