Can I Get A Whoop Whoop? The Forest is Getting Deeper....

Hi, all!

Friday has rolled around once again, and we all know what that means - it's time for us to get our whoop whoop on!  I know that as the fall progresses, it gets harder and harder to find things to post, as we work on Christmas presents.  So I'm thankful for quilt-alongs that allow me to show progress!  Just remember, it doesn't have to be a finish you're whooping about - it could just be progress on a project!!  Let's get started...


As you may remember, I am participating in Amy Smart's Patchwork Forest Quilt-Along, and this week's prompt was to make the 23 medium trees.  Thursday morning, after the grandkids were back at their parents' house, I brought out my fabrics and started making little (ok, medium size) trees...

One cute little tree on the wall!  OK, that was easy...

And then there were four!

I love the color combinations in this line of fabric, and the trees work up so quickly!

After my haircut and errands, I came back and made a few more...

...and then even more!  Amy's pattern is great - it looks like it would be a hard quilt to make, but I'm so excited with how fast it's going together.  I can't wait until we start assembling all the sections!

One last glamour shot of the pretty trees...

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. It might be getting deeper but it is a lovely happy forest!

  2. I love quick blocks like your trees! It's going to be a wonderful quilt when it's finished!

  3. Those tree blocks are so fun. They are on my list of fun things to make, someday.

  4. Those little trees are so cute! I am enjoying watching your forest grow.

  5. Oh, I can see how these would be addictive! Great job on pairing the fabrics-so pretty!

  6. I love your trees and the colours you chose.

  7. Those trees are darling. Wish I had time for them.

  8. Beautiful trees and love your fabric combo!

  9. Your trees are so beautiful. I made a little quilt and am working on UFOs so I can't join you, but I am enjoying seeing your progress.
