Can I Get A Whoop Whoop? Getting Ahead Of The Game!


Hi, all!

Guess what, folks?? It's Friday again, and you know what that means - it's time for us to get our whoop whoop on!!  Think through your accomplishments for the week and decide what you want to share and join in!  Let's get started!


Because I (insanely) took on a late-season Christmas commission, I knew that I needed to really buckle down and make some serious headway on the grandkids' annual quilts.  And this week, I REALLY did!!

First of all....

I took this from finished center medallion.... finished quilt top!  This one is for Emmy, who has become a Harry Potter fanatic this past year.  

And then....

...I finished Lilli's quilt top!  I am really loving these beautiful warm, bookish colors.  Now I need to find the perfect print for the back of the quilt.  I'd love to find a library book panel or something similar.  Oh gosh, I guess I'll have to go do some online shopping!

And I'm almost afraid to say it, but this beautiful girl has been "nearly an angel" in the quilt studio this week!  She wanted to inspect Lilli's quilt top, and I thought it would be a good time to take a glamour shot of her!

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. Congratulations on a very productive week! I love the colors in Lilli's quilt. I saw a library fabric just the other day at Keepsake Quilting.

  2. You nailed it this week. And what a treat to have Lilli cooperate!

  3. So nice to have you back to blogging and quilting Sarah! Congrats on a great week with two flimsy finishes.

  4. Excellent progress! Good luck on your late arriving commission, I'm sure it's nerve-wracking. Emmy's and Lilli's quilt tops look awesome 💖 I'm still in the block and sashing stage with my swoon sixteen project and I'm keeping up with sewcialites2 qal.

  5. Wow you did a lot! I know it feels good to be back in the groove. When I finish today's plans, I'll ne back to share and whoop! 😁💖

  6. Congratulations on getting those tops together. Your fur baby is so pretty. Happy to hear she learning to play well in the sewing studio.

  7. Great progress on some fantastic quilts! Hope you didn't jam yourself up with a commission- no stress.

  8. Bear Creek quilts has a neat little library in a truck fabric. I think the line is called Readerville.

  9. Nice job on Emmy and Lilli’s quilts!

  10. Great progress on the quilts!!!! So glad Pup is finding her calm in the studio!
