Can I Get A Whoop Whoop? It's My Turn...

Hi, all!

It's finally Friday!!  Bet you thought it wouldn't ever get here this week, didn't you!  But it's here, and you know what that means - it's time for us to get our whoop whoop on!  Let's get started...


It's been a weird week around here, and I didn't get anything finished, but I do need to share the quilts that I'm going to donate as part of Hands2Help, so this is a great time to do that!

I made this first quilt using a variation on my On Line pattern, cutting my strings 4.5" long before sewing them together.  The finished quilt is made using all solid scraps, and finished at 36" square.  Giant white polka dots on the back to make it happy - and this quilt will be going to Jack's Basket!

This pretty quilt had been languishing in my "to be quilted" pile for a while, so I'm happy to say that it is now finished and ready to go! I made this using leftover pieces of binding in solids and black and white prints, along with a pretty rainbow print for the little squares between the strips.  I do love jellyroll quilts!  This lap-size quilt will be going to Mercyful Quilts.

And here's something else to whoop about - just from the link-ups from last Sunday, there are more than 100 quilts in progress or finished already!  There's still lots of time to get involved if you want to join in the fun - finished quilts aren't due until May 24th - and this is such a good start, I can't imagine how many we can finish this year!  You can still sign up by filling out the form halfway down this post.

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 util Sunday midnight.

Hope to see you there!




  1. Both quilts are beautiful. Love the backing fabric of the first one, and this lovely jellyroll quilt is a great idea!

  2. Hi Sarah, both of those quilts are great! One of these days I'll make a jelly roll quilt...ha, so many on my list!! I'm finally getting settled in my new sewing space and after these storms blow through today I'll be basting both my Criss Cross and Simple Hearts - Yay, I'm making progress :-)

  3. I love the polka dot backing on the baby quilt. One hundred quilts for the challenge is a great start.

  4. Love both of your scrap friendly quilts! And I'm happy to say packages of beautiful quilts have been arriving on my doorstep. Thank you!!!

  5. Thanks for sharing your TWO finishes for H2H! Such wonderful inspiration for us. I keep eyeing quilts like your Jelly Roll Race variation. LOVE!!

  6. I never thought Friday would get here this week. It's been a crazy work week. So looking forward to this long weekend. Happy Easter.

  7. These are both so great, Sarah! You are so, so generous with your time and talent. Thank you!!
