Can I Get A Whoop Whoop? Sweet Hearts

Hi, all!

Well, Friday has rolled around once again, and you know what that means - it's time to get our whoop whoop on!  I hope you're ready - I know I am!  Let's get started!

I've been busy making pillows this week for a marketplace at a women's event, and I've shared most of them, but I realized that I hadn't shared my three favorite pillows....

These pillows started with three pretty little orphan blocks.  All three had shades of pink in them, which helped determine the background fabric.

I looted my stash for some beautiful linen that I was hoarding - a pale pink, a creamy white, and a deeper pink that actually started life as an IKEA curtain!

All of them are quilted in a grid style, fitted out on the back with an envelope closure (all in the creamy white linen), and bound wth a beautiful tan, cream and white Modernist print.  They are so pretty together!  Soft and feminine, they'll be perfect in a little girl's room or in a "lady cave"!

Now, if you've been watching my progress with pillow covers and are starting to get the bug to make some of your own, I'm hoping to post a tutorial this coming week with the simple how-to's so you can join in the fun!

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!

  11. I love your pillows, it made me think of the scene in the film Steel Magnolia where Shelby was describing her wedding colors, Blush and Bashful--there's something sweet about the color pink.
