Can I Get A Whoop Whoop? A Herd of Dinos, And Other Random Stuff


Hi, all!

It's Friday again!!!  And October - can you believe it?  This year seems to have flown by, and my favorite season has arrived.  That's definitely whoop-worthy!  And since it's Friday, it's time for us to get our whoop-whoop on, so let's get started!


This week I worked on Nathanael's annual quilt, and I'm pleased to introduce you to...

Trixie the Triceratops, and...

her brother, Toto the Triceratops!  These two rounded out the whole gang, and I was able to put  all the blocks up on the design wall to see how they look together.

This is going to be such a fun quilt!  There is still sashing to put between the blocks, and I need to find a border, but the hard part is finished.  Well, except for figuring out how to quilt it!

I'm also whooping it up a bit because I turned several sets of piles like this....

...into neatly organized-by-color drawers full of strings!  This is in preparation for next January's tutorial series, String Therapy.  I feel so accomplished and organized!  Too bad the rest of the scrap stash doesn't look this good.... 😂

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. I love your dinosaur family! I have a new nephew coming early next year and will be making this same quilt for him. :)

  3. Your blocks are adorable. I've been working on my scraps too but I don't think I have nearly what you do.

  4. A triceratops in pineapple! Well, they both have scales, don't they? So cute!

  5. You always find such fun quilts for your grandkids. That one is wonderful. ;^)
