Can I Get A Whoop Whoop? Memories...

Hi, all!

It's finally Friday again!  And you know what that means - it's time to get our whoop whoop on!!  Are you ready? Let's get started!

Congratulations!!  I'll be emailing you shortly to get your snail mail address and will get your goodies in the mail this week!

And now for some quilt-y sewing - which I actually got to do this week!  I've been working on a memory quilt for a customer, and boy this one is big!  I've had to work on it in sections - here's the upper left quadrant in progress... 

Isn't that buffalo check fun?  I used some of Connecting Threads' Quilter's Candy Basics - Patriot Blue and Provincial Blue in Swirls, and Chambray in Silver.

More progress shots - I told you this was a big quilt!

The shot below shows only two thirds of the quilt...

I finished the top on Thursday - and fortunately, it was dry and sunny outside, so I took it and spread it out on the ground to get a good picture!

For those who are curious, I print my photos on Crafter's Images photo fabric - it works great for me and I've used it on many memory quilts, both in color and in black and white.  The pictures stay nice and clear even after washing.

So my task this weekend will be to get this quilt finished!  I'm planning to do a simple straight line quilting on the diagonals, letting the buffalo checks shine.

So - - - - can I get a whoop whoop??


And now it's your turn!

What's got you whooping it up this week?

What's making you dance 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!





  1. This is beautiful. The big blue check works great with the memory photos!

  2. Congrats to the lucky winners - love this quilt you are working on!

  3. Congrats to all the winners of the blog hop! Sarah, thank you for organizing! I'm sure picking winners was no easy task either!

    What a wonderful memory quilt. Great idea piecing the photos into the checks. I know they will be thrilled!

  4. I've been admiring this on Instagram, I love the layout! I may be stealing your idea again, LOL.

  5. What a fabulous quilt! I love the way the photos were added in!!

  6. Love your quilt! Thanks for the party. ;)

  7. Beauty quilt, and the way you have set the photos, a winner. And, speaking of winners, congrats to each one, What a marathon with all those wonderful comments. The QAL was a winner for us all.

  8. Love the quilt! Congrats to all the winners.

  9. What a great memory quilt. It is sure to be loved and cherished.

  10. Sarah, That quilt is amazing. You did a fantastic job with photo placement, etc. That quilt is destined to be a keepsake. As always, thanks for hosting Can I Get a Whoop Whoop! Happy sewing! Andrea

  11. This is a very unique layout for a memory quilt. I like the buffalo check.
    When I looked up Crafters Image, all the products indicated hand wash or dry clean only. But I assume to you referring to machine washing. Do they make a product I'm not seeing or have you discovered machine washing is ok?

  12. what a great quilt so many photos you have added will mean so much to the owner. Have not tried printing photos on fabric, here at the moment there is a big push to sell threads which is a fabric that they say does not print the photo but soaks it right through, hope to see some at the quilt show next weekend

  13. Now how fun is that?!?!? Love the buffalo plaid background!

  14. So cute quilt!

    Congrats to all the winners.The blog hop was fun!

  15. Definitely get a whoop for this top finish. :D I love the buffalo checks - and it's cool how the prints in the photo look like it's made of flannel.

  16. It looks great. Thanks for the info on what you use for printing the photos.

  17. Congratulations to all of the winners. The Hop was a lot of fun. Your memory quilt is perfect. I have wondered what is the best fabric for printing, thanks for the info :)

  18. Definitely a worthy whoop! whoop! project! That fabric highlights the pictures perfectly! Thank you for hosting and for sharing!

  19. I have a two memory quilts on the back burner and now yours has given me a little inspiration to work on them again.
