It's Friday again, and that means it's time to get our whoop whoop on! Are you ready? I had hoped to be a little farther along on my project, but I'm going to whoop about the progress I've made anyway, so let's get started!
First of all, let me preface this by saying that I spent lots of time last weekend working on designs for the Nifty Nines Quilt Along - a reboot of the Sweet Sixteen Quilt Along I did last year before the Hands2Help Challenge. It's been a lot of fun coming up with new designs, and when I got home from my weekend away, I started working on the first top for the quilt along. It didn't hurt that we had a snow day...
True, it doesn't take much snow in Tennessee to close schools! But it was nice to have a day where they were recommending we stay off the roads, so I had good excuse to park behind my sewing machine and sew sew sew!
Here's a progress shot from Wednesday... you can even see the snow outside the window...
And this is how far it got before I had to quit on Thursday. I really wanted to finish putting the top together before I had to write this blogpost, but unfortunately, it just wasn't happening! I should have it finished sometime Friday, though. They are predicting more snow for us - predictions range from 1" to 6" or more, so we'll either get nothing at all or a blizzard! But I've got plenty of fabric on hand, so it's all good....
I'll be posting a tutorial for this, the first of the Nifty Nines quilts, on January 31st. I hope you'll come check it out! There will be six quilts in all as part of the series, all utilizing nine-patch blocks - a little cornucopia of easy designs that will be perfect for using up scraps from your stash!
So - - - can I get a whoop whoop?
And now it's your turn!
What are you whooping about this week?
What's got you doing a little 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!
