It's Friday again - I hope it's a little bit dryer where you are, we've had rain most of the week! - and that means it's time for us to get our whoop whoop on! Are you ready? Let's get started!
When I saw Jamie's tutorial for the "Have Faith" block, I knew I needed to make a scrappy version - so here's "Mermaid In The Middle"! This quilt was made using fifty ten inch squares and 25 random fat quarters, so it made a good dent in my scrap stash - woohoo!!
Here's a close-up of the center block, which I was happy to be able to fussy cut to showcase that adorable mermaid. And that's where the name of this quilt came from.
When I got ready to quilt it, I started looking for a back and didn't see anything right off that I wanted to use. Then the mail came, with a quilting subscription box. Opening it, I found fabrics that really weren't my taste - but they were perfect for the back of this quilt! (Really cute, just not something I would have picked out...)
It really was kismet, because the three yards in the box were exactly what I needed to back this 60" square quilt! Score!!
And one last picture, just because it's pretty!!!
So - - - can I get a whoop whoop?
And now it's your turn!
What's making you whoop 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!
