Can I Get A Whoop Whoop? A Little Christmas Cheer...

Hi, all!

As I sit in the waiting room at the windshield repair place, I'm writing this post - we must take advantage of every spare minute this time of year, right?  But when you read this, it will be Friday - and that means it's time to get our whoop whoop on!  Are you ready?  I know I am!


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

This week, I am very happy to unveil a quilt that I actually have done several weeks early!  This one will be an early Christmas gift, so I'm tickled to death to have it done well before Thanksgiving!


This is - I think - an original design that I came up with fiddling around on EQ7.  (If the star design isn't original, I beg pardon and please let me know who I need to credit!) If it is original, I hope to write a pattern for this quilt soon.


The fabrics are some old Jason Yenter Christmas prints that I had in my stash - I was glad to make this one from stash, so that maybe someday I can buy some new Christmas fabrics!


I used a close-set soft spiral to quilt this, hoping to emulate the thought of blustery winter winds.


Oops - just noticed my shadow in this picture!  But aren't the fabrics pretty?



And just because it's pretty, here's one more shot - it's a shame there isn't snow on the ground to show up those beautiful Christmas prints, but I guess I should be grateful!  Maybe I could photoshop some snow in there....

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

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

And now it's your turn!

What have you been whooping about?


What's got you dancing a little happy dance?

Share - we want to dance right along with you!

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

The party will stay open until Sunday midnight - 

Hope to see you there!

Hugs!

Sarah

  3. Beautiful. Congrats on getting it finished up early. And I'm glad there's no snow on the ground!!

    I love the stars. I've seen similar stars but not quite sure if they were exactly the same stars.

  9. What a gorgeous Christmas quilt! I have fabric for mine...but probably won't be starting until after Christmas :) Linking up a really fun way to use up fabric scraps - those little trimmings, clippings, and loose threads and turn them into a greeting card.

  10. I have snow on my backyard - send it over and I will take a picture of it against the snow. The trick is: I will have to keep the quilt until after Christmas! :-) It is beautiful!!!

  11. What a pretty Christmas quilt! My Christmas quilt is still just a top and back. Not sure if it will get done in time for this Christmas or not.

  13. Wow, that is beautiful. I am not usually a star fan, but this one is a showstopper. I hope it is indeed the first of its kind; that would be awesome.

  14. Very pretty quilt, and I'm duly impressed that you're so way ahead of schedule! But please don't wish snow upon us, now or ever. If you want snow, so to Denver, or Canada, or somewhere else where snow is expected and enjoyed. Not the south! Please.
