Wow, it's Friday again! And not only Friday, but the beginning of a week at the beach for me - definitely whoop-worthy! I'm sure you've got things to whoop about too, so let's get right down to it!
A few years ago, my friend contacted me about making a quilt for her first granddaughter, and we had a lot of fun creating a special quilt for Sadie. I was overjoyed when she contacted me recently to make a quilt for her second granddaughter! She picked out a great kit from Hawthorne Threads, using Maureen Cracknell's Love Story collection. The pattern is called X's and O's, and is available for free on the Art Gallery Fabric website - although there are mistakes in the pattern, so if you choose to download it, check with me for the corrections!
These fabrics are so sweet - sort of old fashioned, but with a modern twist. The colors are soft and saturated, and they make me smile!
I used a random meander to quilt this up so it would be soft and cuddly...
...and finished it up with a label as requested by my friend - to commemorate this special gift to her granddaughter, Millie.
My friend has a grandson now, and another grandbaby on the way - looks like there will be a couple more "nana" quilts in my future!!
And here's another HUGE thing worth whooping over - Take a look at the bottom of this post, right under my name. See that green button? You can now print out this post as a PDF file if you want! NOTE: If you don't see the green button, go up to the top of the post and click on the title - it will open the post as an individual item instead of one of a list of posts, and the button will be at the bottom of the post. Woohoo!!!!!
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 do 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!
