Can I Get A Whoop Whoop? Finally Done!

Hi, all!

Here it is, Friday again! Are you ready to get your whoop whoop on?  I've got a couple of things I'm really doing the happy dance over this week - so I am ready for my whoop whoops!

First of all, I want to start off with the finished pictures of the quilt I made for a friend just diagnosed with breast cancer




I love the texture the quilting gives this quilt!


And now, the quilt I despaired of ever finishing



My Swoon quilt!!!

This started out as a vacation quilt last summer, but I really didn't enjoy making the blocks so it got shelved as a UFO.  Once I decided to give it away as a wedding present, the deadline made me get to work on it.  Tuesday morning I had two and a half blocks to go, so I buckled down and got them finished - and then put the sashing and borders on too! 



And truthfully, as much as I hated making these blocks, I love the finished top!  I think it may have just been the colors - they really aren't my favorites - so someday I may make another Swoon quilt using colors I love.

So that's my whoop whoop for the week!!   

*&*&*&*&*&*&*

And now it's your turn!

What's made you dance the happy dance this week?


Share!  We want to dance along with you!

The party will remain open until Sunday night,

So there's plenty of time to join in!

Hope to see you there!

Hugs!

Sarah

  4. Happy Easter Sarah. Sorry to hear about your friend, but I'm sure the quilt will brighten her day. I've loved watching the swoon blocks come together and am so excited to see the finished top. It's absolutely amazing!

  5. Love both of these quilts, but that top one is just so soft and soothing. I know your friend will be comforted by it. I'll keep her in my prayers.

  11. Your Swoon looks lovely. Congrats on finishing it! I too have wondered if mine will ever get done. Oddly, the top is complete, backing ready. I just need to baste and quilt the darn thing!

  17. I love the colors of your Swoon quilt but I so understand how you lose steam if it isn't something you like. I'm planning a Swoon quilt too.

  20. Your swoon quilt is beautiful Sarah I love the way the blocks are the same but depending on the colours they look so different. I hope mine will turn out as lovely.
