Can I Get a Whoop Whoop? Quilting Week Progress!


Hi, all!

Guess what?  It's finally Friday, and we all know what that means - it's time for us to get our whoop whoop on!  Have you become fully invested in quilting season yet? The cooler weather always makes me anxious to play with fabric - who knows why?  Anyway, let's get started!


This week I set a goal of quilting a bunch of the tops I have awaiting that crucial step.  When I set the goal, I had fourteen quilts awaiting quilting....

...all of these, plus two ministry quilts, one baby quilt for our niece, and two annual quilts for the grandkids.  Then I added this vintage beauty....

...which I found at a "flea market" put on by our local antique shop.  That beauty, which is in perfect condition and pieced beautifully by hand, cost me only $40!!  I can't wait to find just the right piece of backing material and put it on the frame.  

I've also added one more quilt to my mental list, that may be needed for the quilt ministry.  That may be the next one up for me.

I am pleased to say that these three quilts have been completely finished and are ready to move on to their next home!  It's been a good start to quilting week, I must say.

I've also been working on these blocks for Emmy's quilt - and today I added seven more, although I didn't get a picture of them yet.  I'm thinking about sashing these blocks, and playing with some ideas for how to do that still.  

And Thursday I made a huge pot of spaghetti sauce from scratch AND a batch of Halloween cookies for our family night dinner!

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!
