Can I Get A Whoop Whoop? Checkerboards...

Hi, all!

It's Friday, and you know what that means - it's time to get our whoop whoop on!  Are you ready?  Thanks to all the snow we've had, I definitely am!


This week, I've got another 16-patch for your consideration! 
(Of course...)
This one has a really cool construction technique, so tune back in Sunday to learn how I made it.

Simple diagonal stitching through the blocks and cornerstones finish off this cozy quilt.  The layer cake I used Barcelona by Urban Chik, and the background is Kona Espresso.

The back is a great piece of wide shirting I picked up at an estate sale of a local lady's stash, split by a piece of one of the bright green Konas.

You can see the quilting a bit better here on the back!

So there's my seventh 16-patch quilt - can I get a whoop whoop?


And now it's your turn! 

What are you cheering about this week?

What's got you dancing the happy dance?

Share - we want to dance right along with you!

The party will stay open until Sunday midnight - 

Hope to see you there!




  1. I will share my stars today. I am so coming along pretty well on several quilts and will be finishing up two of them soon.

  2. I love the espresso that you used for the sashing! It would make a great guys quilt.

  3. Hello, it's not something made with fabric, but I just wanted to share with you my owls made in crochet. I started to blog again ( this is what makes me dance this week)and I'm getting up with old habits, one of my habits was to participate in this beautiful party so here I am :)

  5. Ha! I have a roll-up(?) of Barcelona plus some yardage for one of Pam and Nicky Lintott's quilts! I really love your 16-patch series.

  6. Would never have guessed that I'd care for a checkerboard quilt...but you have proved me wrong. It's gorgeous!!

  7. Just wanted to tell you how sweet your little clapping penguins are. :) Makes me want to hurry up and finish something. Another great 16 patch. Is that made with just one layer cake? Thanks for your inspiration Sarah. Janita
