It's Friday again - are you ready to get your whoop whoop on? I know I am!!
Well, after working a bit on my Swoon quilt earlier this week, today I decided that I wanted to work on something a bit brighter - so I pulled out the fabric I bought to make Emmy's quilt for Christmas. I remember the day she was wearing an aqua t-shirt with a pair of coral shorts, and I thought "those colors look great on her!" Then I saw Flirt by Sandy Gervais, and it was perfect! So I ordered a jelly roll, and recently supplemented it with the pretty panel from the line. And here's what I put together this morning...
This is the arty shot, but here's a better shot of the top...
It went together pretty quickly, and I've still got some of the jelly roll left to do something interesting on the back.
I've been making a quilt for each of my granddaughters each year for Christmas since Lilli was two - I didn't quilt before that - and it's a tradition I really enjoy. They should have a nice stack of quilts to take to their new homes when they get married, many years in the future! Lilli actually told me that all she wanted from me for Christmas was a new quilt - she counts on Papa to give her all the toys she wants!
And just to prove I've really been working on the Swoon quilt, here's a pic of the blocks I've finished. There's one more almost done, except I cut the center square a quarter-inch too narrow so I can't put it together until I get home to my leftover fabric...
And that's what I'm whooping about this week!
And now it's your turn!
What have you been working on this week
that's got you dancing the happy dance?
Do tell - we want to dance along with you!
The party will stay open until Sunday midnight -
Hope to see you there!!
