It's finally Friday again and as usual, that means it's time for us to get our whoop whoop on!! I'm so excited, because I have a honest-to-goodness finish to share - so let's get started!!
If you're new to my blog, you may not know that every year when we go to the beach for vacation, I usually take at least one sewing project and my sewing machine with me. I've been doing this for several years now, and it's a fun time to work on something just for me. Usually I get a quilt pretty close to finished on vacation, and throw it on the frame when I get home - but this pretty quilt unfortunately sat and languished last year because I was too busy to finish it off.
I had pieced all sixteen blocks, but still needed to assemble the top with the sashing and cornerstones. This week I needed a little "me sewing" so I pulled this out and spent a couple of happy hours putting the top together.
After first shopping my stash and failing to find anything that pleased me, I hopped in the car and headed up to Joann's for a quilt back. And wonder of wonders, I found something absolutely perfect - I am truly in love with this beautiful red print!
Binding and one of my labels, and this quilt is in the books! I'm loving its cheerful colors and bold design - it all makes me smile! For the record, the front is made with a Salt Air jelly roll and Kona Snow, with a bit of copper solid that was in my stash. The pattern is "Grateful" by For The Love of Fabric.
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!
