Can I Get a Whoop Whoop? A Finished Quilt!


Hi, all!

Well, here it is, Friday again, and only a little more than five weeks until Christmas!  But we're busy working on Thanksgiving here, and won't go into Christmas mode until next Friday.  But since it is Friday, that means that it's time for us to get our whoop whoop on!  Let's go!


As you know if you've been here for the past few weeks, I've been working on a fall quilt for my bedroom, and last week I was excited to announce that I had finished the top.  Well, I'm happy to say that this week, I have a finished quilt!

Monday I took my quilt, backing and batting up to church, where our new quilt machine sits on a 12 foot frame - plenty large enough to quilt my king-size quilt all at once!  

This was the first time I had a chance to quilt with the new Innova, and let me tell you it was smooth as butter!  And so, so nice to be able to quilt my top all in one piece, rather than in two sections and joining them together.  

On Tuesday, I put on the binding.  I played a little binding chicken, and as you can see, I won!  You can see the backing fabric here, too - a pretty 108" wide print from Joann's.

A trip through the washer and dryer, and it was ready to put on my bed!  I also changed the quilt on the headboard, and ordered some new pillow shams to replace the white ones I had for my winter and spring quilts.  I'm still planning to make a long accent pillow, probably a 2" square patchwork using the fabrics I used for the leaves, but I don't know if I'll get that done before Thanksgiving.  But for now, my bed is festive and seasonal!!

So - - - can I get a whoop whoop?


And now it's your turn!

What's making you whoop it up this week?

What's got you doing 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!
