Can I Get A Whoop Whoop? Something to Touch...

Hi, all!

It's Friday again - are you ready to get your whoop whoop on?  I know I am - it's been a week of working on things I can't share yet, but I do have one cute little quilt to show off.


First of all, meet Baby Charley! In December 2013, Charley was diagnosed with a brain tumor, which they thought at the time was inoperable.  Recently, though, they did surgery which was successful in removing a large part of the tumor, but it left Charley blind.  So when we were asked to make a quilt for Charley, I knew it needed to be something special and different.


So we gathered up lots of different textured fabrics


…chenille scraps, fake fur…


…appliqued terry towels, minky


…sparkly shiny pieces, rubbery basket weaves…


embroidered pieces, even the fabric they use to put non-skid bottoms on footy pajamas!


It's backed in a pretty piece of rosy fleece, and quilted in a cross-hatch design with rainbow colored variegated thread.  Binding is scrappy pieces of various pink prints.


Lots of different textures for Baby Charley to explore! 

You can follow along with Baby Charley's story on her Facebook page, Smiles For Baby Charley.

So - - - can I get a whoop whoop??

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

And now it's your turn!

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

What's got you whooping it up?

Share - we want to whoop right along with you!

Remember - it doesn't have to be a finish - 
just whatever has been making you happy this week!

The party will stay open until Sunday midnight - 

Hope to see you there!

Hugs!

Sarah

  8. Something tactile for a sightless child -- great idea. I've heard of doing something similar for Alzheimer's patients who often fidget and fiddle with fabric.

  24. Oh, my gosh! This quilt is awesome! I'm sure any baby would love it, but I can imagine how confusing it must have been for Charley to lose her sight, and how very comforting the soft textures on this quilt are to her. Makes me cry and smile at the same time. :)
