Friday has rolled around once again, and that means it's time for us to get our whoop whoop on! It's been a busy and full week around here, as I imagine it has been wherever you are - but hopefully you've got something to whoop about this week. So let's get started!
Last week I shared Lilli's annual quilt as a work in progress, and this week, while it's still a work in progress, it is also a finished quilt top!
Lilli wanted a quilt large enough for her queen size bed, and I didn't want to lose the row with Hedwig and Hogwarts, so I eliminated one row of the original pattern. I also added a 4" border and cornerstones of a Golden Snitch fabric. This thing is massive! But I think she's going to love it. For now, though, I need to put it away for a while so I can work on a job for a customer...
This is the beginning of a t-shirt quilt, one of a pair for sisters. It contains items from babyhood to high school years, which makes it fun to figure out ways to feature smaller bits of fabric. In addition to the two missing blocks (I ran out of time today) there will be strips of fabric rather like coin blocks between the rows of t-shirt blocks. This was done not only to utilize all the fabrics, but also to get it to the size requested by the customer. It's always fun to come up with a new design!
And speaking of new designs, have you seen this quilt by Jen Kingwell? The pattern is called Boho Heart, and I must have it! I don't think it's for sale in this country yet - I can only find it on websites from Australia - but I'm keeping it on my radar. I so enjoyed making my Gypsy Wife and Long Time Gone quilts, and I definitely will be making this one too!
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 you there!
