Can I Get A Whoop Whoop? Paying Work Rocks!

Hi, all!

This week has just flown by, and it's finally Friday!  And that means it's time to get our whoop whoop on - are you ready?  I know I am!  Let's get started!


I am happy to say that I finished this commission T-shirt quilt!  And just ahead of the deadline - SCORE!

Slowly but surely, these puzzle-style quilts are getting easier.  This one actually laid flat the first time I put it together!   And I didn't rip out any hair trying to do the quilt math....  That's a win in my book!

The front...

I also took one of the t-shirts, a great two-sided Disney shirt, and made this fun pillow!

...and the back!

After fighting with the invisible zipper foot (FYI the foot won), I gave up and put a traditional nylon zipper in the bottom of this pillow cover so that it can be washed when needed.

That's my whoop-whoop for the week! I'm overjoyed to have this off my plate - it's getting close to Christmas and I've got to start working on the kids' annual 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 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!




  1. I managed almost a whole day with very little rib muscle pain, and that was enough to almost....ALMOST, do a little dance of joy. Love the pillow, both front and " backside"!!!

  2. Sarah, I am such a big fan of your T Shirt Quilts. I am making my first and it may not be my last. My biggest challenge will be how to quilt it when I'm done.

  3. I was just thinking about t-shirt quilts this morning - yours looks great! And the pillow gave me a good chuckle.

  4. Great quilt - what do you use on the back for interfacing?

  5. Another great quilt! I love the pillow too!

  6. The quilt turned out great and the pillow is darling. FYI - invisible zippers hate me! I feel your pain trying to put one in. LOL

  7. The t-shirt quilt looks great and I LOVE that pillow. It is the cutest pillow ever!!!

  8. Congrats! on another completed T-shirt Quilt. I don't blame you a bit for saving out that last shirt. Made for a rally cute pillow!!

  9. My whoop-whoop is not that finished quilt but the finished POST! It took me forever to finally sit down, compile all the pictures and get the darn thing written! Happy Saturday!
