Can I Get a Whoop Whoop? Stained Glass at Night, and a Winner!

Hi, all!

It's Friday again - are you ready to get your whoop whoop on?  I know I am, but first of all, let's take care of some business, and see who won last Friday's Fabrics N Quilts giveaway!  Little Miss Random picked...



Congratulations!  I'll be contacting you and Shannon by email to hook you up so you can get your swag!

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

And now it's time to share my finish for the week! 


Stained Glass at Night is finished!
Check out all that texture!


I had a great time with the quilting on this one!  I did straight line outlining around the granny square with my Juki, then loaded it on the long arm to do all the free motion quilting.


It's easier to see some of the quilting on the back.  Here you can see the flame motif I did in between the log cabin blocks...


And here's some of the feathers!


The back has a beautiful jade stripe in it, to accent the purple.
I love this quilt and I'm so happy with the graffiti quilting I did.  
I tried out lots of different quilting designs.
I highly recommend this kind of quilting as an exercise in creativity - it's very freeing!

Now I feel like I can really call myself a quilter -
I have managed to put acceptable feathers on a quilt, with only a little bit of picking out stitches!!

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

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

And now it's your turn!

What's making you whoop it up this week?


What's got you dancing the happy dance?

Share -- we want to dance right along with you!

The party will stay open until Sunday midnight - 

Hope to see you there!

Hugs!

Sarah

  5. "very freeing". You are absolutely right: we need to "let go" and just go for it. You have done a superb job! Feathers are my favourite, always have been. :-)

  11. Hi Sarah - I thought I 'd share my problem with you - I made my two H2H quilts, and began to box them up to mail to Emily........... the box turned out to be too small.............I found another box.......... too big................. OK, make another quilt !!!! So, she will get three now ... just a slight delay while I fill up that bigger box...smile.

  17. Yes, you may have a WHOOP! WHOOP!

    My whoops were little successes - I got four mug rugs cut out & ready to sew together. I got a stitch-a-long from March stitched together and ready to applique - still pending a decision on the backing and trim. I decided to invest in an old Singer 99K straight stitch for quilt piecing - as in I can lug it around room to room or outside to be creative. Will be checking it out today, so may have a new addition to the craft room tonight. And to wrap up this week, the plan is to harvest from the two cherry trees in my back yard on Sunday - yummy!

  19. Stained glass at night is a wonder Sarah - it turned out so beautiful! I love that jade stripe on the back too. I had never heard the term "Graffiti Quilting" and like how it sounds so accessible.
