Can I Get A Whoop Whoop? Some more template work...

Hi, all!

It's Friday again, and you know what that means!  It's time to get our whoop whoop on!!  Remember, it doesn't have to be a finish - so share your progress, too!

So this is what I'm whooping about this week!  
A little template work on a pretty quilt
destined to be auctioned off to benefit
Relay For Life!

Look!  I finally did some decent feathers!
I even did some in the borders, but they're 
not as easy to see - which is probably good!

And see the little arcs on each block?
I used my sweet melon shaped template to do those - 

Here's another shot of the quilting...

And one of the binding!  Aren't those little pennants cute?

And one more whoop whoop...

Look at this wonderful stack of quilts for Quilts Beyond Borders!  Definitely a collaborative effort, these were made by elementary school children and my sewing sisters in our church, and will be going to Ethiopian orphans!  Sixteen of them - whoop whoop!!  (Kind of looks like the bed for the princess in The Princess and The Pea, doesn't it?)


So that's what I'm whooping about this week!

And now it's your turn!

What are you doing a jig about right now?

See - it's more fun with friends!!

So share and join in the fun!

The linky will remain open until Sunday at midnight -
Be there or be square!!
