Can I Get A Whoop Whoop? Pushing the Season...

Hi, all!

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

This week, I kind of "pushed the season" and made some cute Halloween pillow covers...

These were pretty simple - I took a charm pack of Halloween fabric and cut it into 2.5" squares, then added enough solid orange to have enough squares (192) to make three 16" pillow covers.  I laid the squares out on fusible interfacing, then ironed to secure them down.  I folded the fusible interfacing on the first vertical gridline (where the squares touch) and stitched a 1/4" seam.  Repeated for all the vertical lines, then cut them open and pressed them open.  Repeated the whole process for the horizontal lines, and when I was finished I had perfectly matched corners and a piece just the right size for a 16" pillow cover!  I found the silhouettes on Google Images, printed them out and traced them onto fusible webbing and applied to black Kona cotton.  Backing and binding and aren't they cute?

And they already have a new home!!
Whoop whoop!!

And I had another whoop whoop moment today...

My new Kona color chart came today!!!  Aren't those colors just gorgeous?  It makes me smile just to see it...

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 do 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!

  7. I am SO in love with your kitty cat silhouette pillow! It's adorable! And I didn't know there was a new Kona chart out. How long ago did they come out with it? I love having actual swatches when I'm ordering solid colors online.

  8. I can't believe it's Friday again. But I'm sooooooooo glad it's Friday again!! LOL I think I want a new Kona colour card. It looks like it's laid out differently than the previous one.
