Can I Get a Whoop Whoop? It's Beginning to Look a Lot Like...

Hi, all!

Surprise surprise - it's Friday again!  Where oh where did the week go?  But since it's Friday, we all know what that means - it's time for us to get our whoop whoop on!  I hope you're ready, because I know I am!  Let's get started...


If you're on Instagram, I'm sure you've seen plenty of quilts made by Amy Smart's Pine Hollow Patchwork Forest pattern. For the past six weeks, she has been hosting a quilt-along and all the different interpretations of her quilt have been amazing!  I'm excited to say that I made one of my own, and it's completely finished...

I have to say it was quite a challenge to get pictures of this quilt, as the wind decided to kick up at random times...

...but thanks to my brand new photography assistant a/k/a vintage clothesline, I did manage to get some nice close-ups!

This quilt offered good opportunities to do some fussy cutting, and it was fun to find sweet images in the Heather Ross fabric I was using!

Such as trimming the tree...

...or ice skating!

And I love the fabric I found for the back - it's hard to tell in this picture, because the sun is shining through, but it has a light cream background and sparkles like snow!

And to make it even better, I won one of the giveaways that Amy had associated with the quilt-along!  Woohoo!!

And one more thing I'm whooping about this week - here are my three students from class at Joann's this week, with the potholders they made as they learned how to do both quilt-as-you go piecing and machine binding!

We had such a good time learning together!  And I think they deserve a huge 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. I love your finished quilt. The fussy cutting really pays off as it gives sweet things to look for. The wind has been annoying here in the UK, made worse because it blew heavy rain in.

  2. Love your Forest quilt!! The backing sounds perfect too! Congrats on your class at JoAnns, I'm sure there will be plenty more :-) I'm still (slowly) piecing my Granny Cabin top...hopefully I finish it this weekend. :-)

  3. Wonderful TA-DA! Glad the class went well!

  4. Big jumpy claps for your finished Forest!! It turned out so great and done in plenty of time for Christmas. That's a major score! Your students look really happy with their projects, too :)

  5. Congratulations on your finish Sarah. It looks great!

  6. A completed quilt, successful students, AND a PRIZE??? Sounds like a fabulous week!!

  7. Your quilt is so beautiful and fresh. Well done!

  8. What a cool quilt! So happy and cheerful. So many treasures to see. Great interpretation of Amy's Pine Forest. I love how the tall tree on the left gives depth and makes the design come alive.

  9. This post is absolutely brilliant! Thank you so much for sharing!

  10. Hello there, You have done a fantastic job.

  11. I’ll certainly digg it and individually recommend to my friends.


  12. I was able to think a lot while looking at this post.
