Can I get a Whoop-Whoop?? A Very Productive Week....

Hi, all!

Well, it's Friday again - are you ready to show off your work? I've had a really busy week - which felt good, since I'd had a few slack ones!!  Here's what I finished this week...

The front of my first H2H quilt...

...and the back.  I'm showing this as a finish
this week because I actually got the binding
done, and the quilt is washed and ready to go!
The front of my 2nd H2H quilt....

...and the back.

A ministry quilt going to a lady
just diagnosed with ovarian cancer...
The sudoku center of this quilt was
pieced by Debora, a member of our
quilt ministry.  Its name - Gumdrops!

And here's a peek at the backing,
donated by a blog friend...
A beautiful string quilt made with 50 6" blocks donated by Sharon Vrooman...I named this Hugs and Kisses, because of the Xs and Os.

Look how beautiful those blocks are!
This quilt is going to a long-time cancer patient
who is undergoing some surgery.
So all in all, it's been a very productive week, even though for two of the quilts, I was only finishing off what others had started.  My Juki is working extra-great since its day "at the spa" with the repairman - I quilted three quilts this week without a single thread break!!  And that, if nothing else, is worth a whoop whoop!!

And now it's your turn!  What have you been working on this week?  Even if it's not a finish, if you're excited about what you've been doing, link up and share it so we can get excited too!  




  1. Whoop whoop and I love your new header on your blog!

    Beautiful finishes, Sarah. I love the back of that H2H quilt as much as the front!
