Can I Get A Whoop Whoop? The Moody Blues....

Hi, all!

It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas around here, how about where you are?  I am loving all the sweet Christmas commercials (Publix made me cry AGAIN this year!) and the excitement on the faces of all the kids in the stores!  And to add to the excitement, here it is, Friday again, and time for us to get our whoop whoop on!  Let's get started...


Today I'm ready to unveil the second of my grandkids' annual quilts!  This one is for Lilliana, who will be turning twelve on Monday (HOW DID THAT HAPPEN???)  Here's a picture of my beautiful girl...

...who, because she is eleven and a "tween", tends to look like the next picture more often than the one above!

Moody seems to be the watchword with tween girls, and that inspired the name of her annual quilt this year - meet The Moody Blues!

Lilli's favorite color is blue, and when I saw Christina Cameli's pattern "Sea of Serenity" from her book Wedge Quilt Workshop, I knew it would be perfect for a quilt for Lilli.

I added in the pop of yellow because, after all, she does smile occasionally!!  And that smile is like a ray of sunshine (and keeps coming more and more frequently as she gets closer to twelve...)

I had a beautiful linen duvet cover that I cannibalized to make the back for this quilt, so it's lovely and soft and promises to get softer over time.  The giant acanthus pattern also feels very modern in the dark gray and white!

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!
