Can I get a Whoop-Whoop?? My Hubby Is A Genius!!!

Hi, all!

Well, as the title of my post states, my husband is a genius!!!  With his superior masculine knowledge*, he fixed the free motion quilting foot for my Juki, and now my quilting frame is back in business!!!  Woohoo!!!

*I think that when they take the girls aside in the 5th or 6th grade in school, they take the guys and tell them all sorts of things that they can amaze their women with later in life, like what E-rings are and where to find them......   

So I managed to get three flimsies quilted so far this week...

Three down, eleven to go.....  (whew!)
A friend and I also got these stacks of 5" squares cut for our sewing sisters' get-together on Saturday...

They'll be used to make quilts for 100 Quilts for Kids.  Are you participating?

And I also got a huge pile of fabric donations folded and tucked away in the stash wall - hooray!  This batch had a lot of big pieces - four and five yards each, and about 30 yards of high quality white!  Just what we needed!!

So that's what I'm whooping about this week - what have you been working on??  Share with us - let us cheer you on!!  You've got until Saturday night to link up.  And remember to tell everyone you've linked up here, and invite them to join in the fun!!




  1. Well I know what an E-ring is, but I grew up on a farm. You fabric wall looks terrific! What wonderful donations - so glad many are sending your way. Yes, I am taking part in the 100 Quilts for Kids - we have such a need here with the flooding loss.

  2. Well done on getting three quilts quilting!

  3. A good week!

    Good luck with the challenge!

  4. How great that your hubby was able to fix the problem! It's great to have someone willing and handy to keep things going. What kind of frame do you use with your Juki??

  5. That boys and girls comment was too funny!Great job with all the quilting! I wish I could make another quilt for 100 Quilts for Kids right now, but I'm glad I could donate one. My goal is to do two next year :)

  6. You already know I think your hubby is pretty special for fixing your foot. Nice work getting three (!) quilts quilted. And just think of all the quilty possibilities in your squares and stacks! Whoop whoop!

  7. Great hubby!! I know you were pleased to be back at it again:)

    I am working on some fabric stacks myself.

    Lots of fabric add ins--great news;)

  8. That is so great that your husband was able to fix your machine! Love all the great stacks and fabrics, have fun!

  9. Great job on getting three quilts done, and fabulous job with the organizing! I hope you have a fun sewing day tomorrow. :)

  10. Nice work Sarah and the other entries ! I have not sewn this week ** big sigh ** again . But , I will !

  11. Whoop Whoop! You got so much done, and the stash wall is so beautiful. That alone has to be so inspiring! My Whoop is a work in progress, not very exciting. But I did get something nearly done that's been brewing around in my brain for awhile!
