Can I Get A Whoop Whoop? Hugs and Kisses...

Hi, all!

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!

Hugs!

Sarah

  6. I hate when patterns are wrong - it's why I make test blocks and read patterns several time. I never cut out a complete project for this reason, also. BUT, it turned out beautifully and happy dance for you.

  8. How about whoops whoops? I had a 'crop failure' of sorts in my first attempt to post a thumbnail above. Sorry about that. Thank you for the pretty spring quilt pics, and the linky party.
