Can I Get A Whoop Whoop? A Pretty Little Quilt...

Hi, all!

It's Friday again - and time to get your whoop whoop on!!  The last Friday of summer - maybe you've got a great summer project to share?  It's always fun to look forward to the next season, too - all the time in the winter to sew that we don't have so much of in the summer.  Oh, the possibilities!!

Here's one of the quilts I worked on this week...


This quilt was made with some giveaway winnings from Sherri of A Quilting Life.  She had a blogiversary giveaway and I was lucky enough to win these beautiful Riley Blake fabrics, enough to make this wonderful quilt!  


We had a request for a quilt for a ten year old girl with Crohn's disease, who was going to have major surgery to deal with the physical effects of Crohn's.  This fabric seemed perfect - I couldn't think of a better use for it, than to make a child happy!  It was wonderful to work with, too - the pattern that came with the fabric was easy and worked up beautifully!

So that's my whoop whoop for the week - I just hope the recipient is whooping with joy too!!

*)*)*)*)*)*(*(*(*(*(*

And now it's your turn!

What have you been working on this week?
What's made you whoop for joy?

We want to see - and share some whoops with you!!

The linky party will stay open until Sunday night.
Join in the fun!!

Hugs!

Sarah

  2. Sarah, your quilt is beautiful! I read the other day about your good news from your scan and I'm so happy to hear it! I didn't comment then (pre-occupied with hurricane news now that my son lives in NOLA; he's fine) but I've been thinking about you. Have a great weekend! Lisa

  3. Beautiful quilt! And double bonus that it was made from free fabric for a charitable cause.

    Definitely Whoop Whoop worthy (and then some).

  14. Great! I just love the little tree fabric that makes me think of Bob Ross (the painter) who would say "A happy little tree here and another happy little tree over there.."
