Can I Get a Whoop Whoop? A Fun And Fruitful Day....


Hi, all!

Friday has rolled around once more, and we all know what that means - it's time for us to get our whoop whoop on!!  I hope you're ready - just remember, it doesn't necessarily mean a finish, just something that you're doing a little happy dance about.  And I hope everyone has had something to whoop about this week!  So let's get started...


Thursday was a good day in my studio!  A friend of mine who recently got a long arm machine came over and I gave her some tips for quilting, since she hasn't been able to attend any classes yet due to COVID.  She's a member of the quilt ministry, and had been quilting on our machine at church for a while, so she knew some things, but I was able to show her some new tricks, too.  We also went over how to machine bind at the same time...

And this is what we ended up with at the end of the morning - a quilted top for the quilt ministry and a finished baby quilt too!  Piper has a better idea of some simple tricks that will make her quilting go faster and easier, and we had a most excellent time talking, too!  

And then, after Piper left to pick up her kids from school, I finished the second memory quilt top.  Two down, one to go!

All in all, a good day and a good week!

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 like your corner treatment on the striped border. That's one trick to remember!

  2. Nice to share the love of machine quilting-and you can also use another long-armer for the church ministry!

  3. Not a stitch in fabric but I've made bookkeeping feats and got all my sister's cats adjusted in their new digs here and eating too. Made a million phone calls taking care of estate issues and have cleaned out more of her house. I'm not sure I see a light at the end of this tunnel yet but my flashlight is still working. Thank God!

  4. Lovely to spend time with your friend, chat and have a productive morning.

  5. What fun to spend a day with a friend. More lovely quilt finishes and the memory quilt is just beautiful
