Here it is, Friday again!! Are you ready to get your whoop whoop on?? We're having our first real "summery" week here - the temperature has been on the rise and we're hoping to get the boat out on the lake this weekend. Do you have big plans for the summer?
This week I really got acquainted with Jolene (my new long arm quilting machine) and cranked out a bunch of quilts. Like this one...
...and this one...
...and two more I haven't put binding on yet!
But my favorite quilt for this week is one that I quilted for a blog friend. I "met" Laurel back last summer when I found out I had cancer. She sent me a chemo cap and the pattern to make it, telling me that it was one she had made when she had gone through her bout with cancer. This year she signed up for the Hands2Help Charity Quilt Challenge, made her quilt top, and then found out that her cancer had returned. She sent me her top to be finished, and look how beautiful it is!
I love the colors in this quilt - it's so warm and welcoming, it looks like a comforting hug even before you put it around you! So here's a big whoop whoop for Laurel - it was a pleasure to quilt your top for you and I love this quilt!! It will be sent to Emily over at Em's Scrap Bag to be donated to Happy Chemo.
And if you haven't been a part of the Hands2Help Charity Quilt Challenge this year, be sure to come back on Sunday and check out the links as the participants show off the quilts they've created for the challenge!! Maybe you'll be inspired to join in next year!
So that's my whoop whoop for the week!
What have you been working on this week?
What has made your heart happy?
Share with us and let us whoop with you!!
The linky party will stay open until Sunday night..
Be there or be square!!
