Can I Get A Whoop Whoop - For Tommy?

Hi, all!

Friday - can you believe it?  And just because someone shared this with me...


...and I believe that misery loves company, can you believe that, including today, there are only ten more Fridays until Christmas?  How did that happen???

But because it's Friday, it's time to get our whoop whoop on - and I know you're ready!  I have been working on making a bunch of UFOs to finish up after I return from China, and on cleaning up the house and packing this week, so I don't really have much to show today.  BUT - Tommy, one of the quilt ministry members, finished a fabulous quilt this week that I want to share with you!


Isn't that gorgeous?  It is made using a kit from Connecting Threads, and has some interesting piecing techniques and also some appliqué to make those blocks float.  Both techniques were new to Tommy, but I think he did a fabulous job!


And then he loaded this quilt up on our new mid-arm machine, a Block RockIt named Grace, and did the quilting.  He carefully stitched in the ditch around the blocks and the black border, then did a really nice medium stipple on the rest of the quilt to give it some fabulous texture!


Such a bright and cheerful quilt!  I rather think this one will go to a child in need someday soon.  And I can't wait to see what Tommy works on next!

So - can Tommy get a whoop whoop?

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

And now it's your turn!

What's got you whooping it up this week?


What's making you dance a little happy dance?

Share - because we want to dance right alongside you!

The party will stay open until Sunday midnight -

Hope to see you there!

Hugs!

Sarah

  6. That is a great quilt! I'm doing another kit check at CT. I found one in their catalog that I really like. Keep thinking it will go on sale one of these days. And, I really don't buy all that many kits.

  15. Hooray for Tommy! And thanks for the inspiration. That gives me an idea for a quilt for my nephew--I have some charm squares that need a kicky setting. This is a great starting point.
