Can I Get A Whoop Whoop? A Fun Little Pillow...

Hi, all!

It's finally Friday!!  Seems like forever since we've had a Whoop-Whoop Friday around here, but I hope you've enjoyed the 12 Days of Christmas in July Blog Hop and Quilt-Along in its place.  But now, since it's Friday, we all know what that means - it's time for us to get our whoop whoop on!  Are you ready? I know I am - so let's get started!


Writing twelve days of blog posts in a row can be quite a challenge, and as I finished the last one (finally!) I realized that I still needed a post for today (erk!).  What in the world would I share?  You can't just whoop about having survived writing twelve straight days of blogposts (although that's totally whoop-worthy, IMHO!).  Then I remembered a little project I had my eye on, and realized it would be perfect!

How about a reader's pillow?  This is a great gift for a kid, complete with a color-coordinated book - and I know a little boy who loves green who might just be getting this for Christmas!

But why limit it to kids?  Maybe you like to do some adult coloring in the evenings - this is a great place to stash your coloring book and some nice colored pencils.  I can see other uses for it, too - maybe a diary or journal for a preteen, or a place for a well-loved stuffed animal to sleep during the day - maybe you've got some other suggestions?  I'd love to hear them!

I'll be posting a tutorial for this pillow next Wednesday, as I get back in the regular swing of posting.  This is a great stash-busting pillow, as you'll see when you read the tutorial!  And just think of the jump you could get on Christmas!  This pillow took me about an hour and a half to make, and that included auditioning fabrics.

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. Pretty pillow, but mostly, congratulations and whoop whoop for the 12 Days of Christmas in July Blog Hop! Love your Quilt-Along, I have saved all your posts and will come back later, after holidays, to follow the steps!

  2. Such a good idea for a gift for a child.

  3. Thank you for hosting such an inspiring 12 Days Hop. I love the pocket pillow - would make great for a hospice or nursing home resident.

  4. Congratulations on finishing all the blog posts for 12DOCIJ! I don't have anything to whoop about this week...I've been procrastinating work on my commissioned memory quilt (I hate when I do this!) It's all basted and the machine is setup for FMQ...I just keep walking past the door, ugh!

  5. Yay! I have posts to link :-) Small things make me happy! Your reader's pillow is so sweet! Have a great weekend, Sarah :-)

  6. Looking forward to Wednesday. That is a great project.

  7. What a fun (and useful) fast finish!! I'll be looking forward to next week's tutorial.

  8. What a great idea. Look forward to reading the tutorial. Well done on the blog hop.
