Can I Get A Whoop Whoop? A Quick Quilt!

Hi, all!

It's Friday again, and you know what that means - it's time to get our whoop whoop on!!  It's been a long dreary week here - very little sunshine and lots of rain - so I'm ready to do some whooping instead of wondering where the sun went!

Despite the weather - or maybe because of it - I did manage to get some sewing done this week!  Sunday afternoon I decided that I wanted to make a baby quilt for an upcoming baby and started to check over my stash to see what I had.  Low on the colors she requested, I decided to go up to Joanns at 4 o'clock.  



I found these three fabrics, and cut them into 2.5" strips, then sewed eight sets of three strips together.


Then I cross-cut the strip sets into 6.5" blocks, and put them together into a rail fence pattern.


By 7:30, I had this quilt top all assembled!  I think that was a record for me - and it felt good!


Monday morning I loaded it up on the frame, then spent some time with my grandkids...


...and after they left, I quilted it up!  I did the binding on it today, but didn't get a pic of that - the weather has really been just awful for taking pictures lately!  But this quilt is finished and ready to go to that new little baby as soon as she is born!


And then this happened!  Between 5 pm on Monday and 5 pm on Tuesday, I quilted ten quilts for the quilt ministry!  Binding commenced on Wednesday night, and Marie (a ministry member) took a couple home to do this week.  I finished up the binding on the last one today, and one of these quilts has actually already been mailed to a woman in South Carolina!  It felt good to complete so many at once - a little hard on the body standing at the frame all day, but so worth it!

So - - - can I get a whoop whoop?

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

And now it's your turn!

What's got you whooping it up this week?

What's making you dance the happy dance?

Share - we want to dance right along with you -

And it's always more fun to dance with friends!

Remember - it doesn't have to be a finish,
just something that's making you happy.

The party will stay open until Sunday midnight.

Hope to see you there!

Hugs!

Sarah

PS - My friend Zenia Rene has a new Saturday linky party called "WHOOMP There It Is" going on at A Quilted Passion - check it out and show her some linky love!  I'm headed there now.....

  2. Wow, you did an amazing lot of quilting this week! I really like your sweet lavender baby quilt. Sometimes the simplest patterns that showcase the fabrics are the most effective. Very pretty!

  9. Wow Sarah! you definitely get a Huge Whoop Whoop! That is a lot of quilts to quilt in a very short time. I love your soft colored raif fence baby quilt. Grey and purple must be in colors for nurseries. It made me laugh that you have it finished before the baby is born. I just posted a grey and purple baby quilt I made and the little girl is now two.
