Can I Get A Whoop Whoop? A Sweet Baby Quilt...

Hi, all!

Well, it's Friday again, and you know what that means - it's time to get our whoop whoop on!!  Are you ready?  I am!

This week I've been working on a bunch of projects that I can't share yet - I'll have to wait until after they are given to their intended recipients!  But I did make a sweet little baby quilt that I want to share with you...

We had a request for a baby quilt for a new baby in shades of yellow, lavender and purple.  Well, our stash is really short on purples, but I had some leftover Willow fat quarters in yellow and gray...

I cut those fat quarters up into 5" squares and sewed together a simple patchwork charm quilt.  I love the soft shades of this collection, and I was so happy that I still had the yellow fat quarters!

I did find a pretty lavender print for the back, and a lavender stripe for the binding.

I quilted it with a free motion design I call "girly swirly" - just swirls that come to points, but I think it looks super feminine!

I had to use the kids' play yard as a photography assistant today, because I couldn't get the clothesline up by myself, but I actually think it worked really well!  

This was a wonderful quick project - it's always fun to sew for new babies!  So - - - can I get a whoop whoop??


And now it's your turn!

What's got you whooping it up this week?

What's made you dance a happy dance?

Share - we want to dance right along with you!

And it's always more fun to dance with friends!

The party will stay open until Sunday midnight - 

Hope to see you there!
