It's finally Friday again, and you know what that means - it's time to get our whoop whoop on!!! Are you ready? Just a reminder, it doesn't have to be a finish (although finishes are good!) It can just be something you're proud of accomplishing this week - making progress on a project, or even bringing some order to your sewing space! So find something to whoop about and let's get started!
This is my beautiful niece Ashley. That baby bump she's showing off is twin girls, due sometime the last half of September! Of course, when I found out we had twin girls coming, I went into quilt-y overdrive....
...and created a pair of twin quilts!
I used the "Sparkle Plenty" pattern from Connecting Threads to create these two quilts. The stars themselves are made using prints from the Tiger Lily collection by Heather Ross (don't you just love her whimsical prints?) and the backgrounds are two different Kona solids. The binding on each matches that quilt's Kona color, with a bit of the sister quilt's background color added in for fun.
I love the backing fabric I found at Joann's! I originally went looking for a sweet simple baby print - something light and airy. Couldn't find what I was looking for in the baby section, so I went over to look at some of the other quilting fabric. When I spotted this print, I knew immediately it was perfect! All the colors coordinated with the prints in the quilt, and it's fun but a little bit sophisticated, too.
I'm so happy I finished these before the arrival of two sweet little girls - and I can't wait to see pictures of them with their quilts!
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!
