Can I Get A Whoop Whoop? Gearing Up....

Hi, all!

Friday is here again, and as always, that means that it's time to get our whoop whoop on!!  Are you ready?  Let's get started!

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

It's hard to believe it's time already, but Sunday is the beginning of the Stunning Stars Quilt-Along!  


If you're new here, you might not know about this series, so here's the skinny.  Two years ago, I started doing a series of simple quilt designs in the weeks leading up to the Hands2Help Charity Quilt Challenge.  The first year was the Sweet Sixteen Quilt-Along, with eight simple designs featuring sixteen-patch quilts.  Last year, it was the Nifty Nines Quilt-Along, sharing six different nine-patch quilts.  This week I've been working hard on the first quilts for the Stunning Stars Quilt-Along, and I've got a couple of teaser shots for you!


I'm trying really hard to make these out of my scrap bins, thereby killing two birds with one stone!


I can't wait to share the whole series with you - I hope you'll stop by and find something you love!!  The series will run from January 29th through March 5th, leading right into this year's Hands2Help Challenge, and giving you plenty of inspiration and simple quilt ideas if you want to join in and make a quilt or two!

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


Also, just in case you didn't see it last week, there's a giveaway going on, and you've still got time to enter!



I'll be giving away two fat quarter bundles of this beautiful Rambling Roses fabric by Tanya Whelan for Free Spirit Fabrics - all you need to do to enter is go to this post and leave a comment (or two!)  Entries close Sunday afternoon about 5:00 PM CST and I'll announce the winners on Monday.  

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 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

  8. Stunning Stars will be a delightful quilt to create. I have some vintage calico prints that I am hoping to use, or maybe some other bright and colorful prints. Donna Weeks aka Momma Llama

  15. Definitely a double whoop! I'm so excited to start another year of H2H! I posted a reminder of Sunday's beginning to the QAL on QuiltBOM, too. That fabric is beautiful. I've been so snowed under, I've hardly read a blog this year, so I need to go catch up!

  17. I am trying hard to use my scraps up but I swear they multiply when I am not looking. I have done two and working on another between a quilt I am making for my grandson.

  18. Love the stars quilts, I usually try and make a quilt for Hands2Help so I think I might be raiding my scrap bins for a star quilt

  19. Especially love that second star quilt top photo--very dramatic!
    Looking forward to your Star series. My longarmer actually teases me about stars quilt. Everytime I tell her I've got a qulit for her the first thing she says is, "Oh, you finished yet another star quilt?"

  20. I just purchased a pile of charm pack pre-cuts at a local thrift store that benefits a school in our area. They are in fabulous shape! I've been thinking about using them to make a 'star' quilt like your first picture. Now I'm anxiously awaiting the next posts!
