Can I Get a Whoop Whoop? Squirrel! from Confessions of a Fabric Addict

 

Hi, all!

Hard to believe, but it's already Friday!  And we all know what that means - it's time for us to get our whoop whoop on. Let's get started!

*&*&*&*&*&*&*


First of all, take a look at the view out my studio window!  I am really enjoying watching the leaves turn as the temperatures cool down.  I'll keep you updated so you can enjoy with me!

And while I was watching the leaves turn, I got a wild hair to start another project...


A couple of jelly rolls, a lot of chain piecing...


...a good start on ...

Hi, all!

Can you believe it's Friday already?  This week has flown by - but it IS Friday and that means it's time for us to get our whoop whoop on!  Let's get started!

*&*&*&*&*&*&*

My week really did fly by, and I don't feel like I got a whole lot done -but I did start on Nathanael's annual quilt!  I am using Elizabeth Hartman's Dinosaurs pattern, and it is a lot of fun!  I had some trouble with the first dinosaur block I made, but then I went back and actually read her step-by-step instructions ...

Friday is here once again (do they seem to be coming along faster as we near the fall?) and that means it's time for us to get our whoop whoop on!  I hope you're ready - I am!  So let's get started!

*&*&*&*&*&*&

It was a near thing, but I did manage to have a "finish" this week...


OK, it's just the top, not truly a finish yet, but I'm pleased to have made this much progress!  I started these blocks last week while I was on vacation, and finished the last two and did ...

Can I Get A Whoop Whoop? It's Never Too Early.... from Confessions of a Fabric Addict

 

Hi, all!

Well, here it is, Friday once again, and finally - Friday at the beach!!  I didn't think this day would ever get here, and as of last week, we were worried we'd be hurricane'd out, but all is well and I am writing this as I look out on the Gulf of Mexico.  

It's been a lovely vacation so far, so we are definitely whooping it up!  But it's time for all of us to get our whoop whoop on, so let's get started!

*&*&*&*&*&*&*

Because we are at the beach, I haven't ...

Friday has rolled around once again, and that means it's time for us to get our whoop whoop on!  It's been a busy and full week around here, as I imagine it has been wherever you are - but hopefully you've got something to whoop about this week.  So let's get started!

*&*&*&*&*&*&*

Last week I shared Lilli's annual quilt as a work in progress, and this week, while it's still a work in progress, it is also a finished quilt top!


Lilli wanted a quilt large enough for her queen size bed, and ...

Hi, all!

Can you believe Friday has made it here again?  Seems like these weeks are just flying by - but time does fly when you're having fun.  And I have been having some serious fun this week!  Friday means it's time to get our whoop whoop on, so let's get started!

*&*&*&*&*&*&*

You all probably know that I make a quilt each year for each of my grandkids and give it to them at Christmas time.  It's a fun way to commemorate their year - the quilt usually has something to remind them of what they were like ...

Can I Get A Whoop Whoop? Lots Going On! from Confessions of a Fabric Addict


Hi, all!

Well, here it is, Friday again, can you believe it?  The weeks are just flying by, it seems.  But Friday means it's time for us to get our whoop whoop on, so let's get started!

*&*&*&*&*&*&*&*


First up is this t-shirt quilt for a young man who just lost his dad unexpectedly.  One of his mom's friends commissioned this quilt and I was honored to be part of its story.


Pretty blues make this a cheerful quilt, and one I hope he will enjoy for many years to come.


I love the texture simple straight line ...

*&*&*&*&*&*&*

It's been a weird and disjointed week for me, with lots of plans having to be sidelined because of things that came up.  BUT...


....we did finally manage to get the foyer light fixture up!  It's kind of a funny story - we ordered it soon after moving in, but by the time it arrived, the COVID hibernation had begun and we didn't want to call in ...

It's been a quiet week in my home town.......... but it's Friday and that means it's time for us to get our whoop whoop on again!  Are you ready?  Let's get started!


*&*&*&*&*&*&*

A couple of weeks ago I got a pair of bird feeders and set them up in the back yard where we can see them from our patio.  It has been quite a treat seeing all the birds, but lately we've been visited by a pair of squirrels who have provided some serious acrobatic entertainment!  I'm sorry I don't ...

Happy 4th of July weekend, at least if you are here in the US!  This year certainly seems to be going by in a flash but here we are at Friday again - and that means it's time for us to get our whoop whoop on!  Are you ready?  Let's get started!

*&*&*&*&*&*&*

This week has been a crazy one, and I've been working on a lot of things, but haven't finished much lately.  Or rather, I've finished some small things, continued working on some big things, and done a little dreaming about future possibilities ...

*&*&*&*&*&*&*

It's been a little bit of a strange week, with more things going on than usual.  So I didn't think I had actually finished something this week, until Bill reminded me of this....


I finished the Moongate postage stamp quilt!  


It did help that I found a really cute backing on the clearance rack at Walmart - I wasn't looking, it just caught my eye ...

Hi, all!

Friday is here once again, and that means it's time for us to get our whoop whoop on!  I've been chasing a squirrel this week, so I've got something fun to share - and I hope you've been having fun sewing too.  Let's get started!

*&*&*&*&*&*&*

Last week I saw a really cool little quilt on Instagram....


...and started doing a little research.  @mamacatquilts said that it was "kawandi" quilting, so I did a Google search, and found an article and mini-tutorial for a machine sewn version by Piece Love and Happiness called Modern Kawandi ...

Today I am tickled to death to have an honest-to-goodness finish!  I've been working on a t-shirt quilt for a while now, off and on in between other projects that needed to be done first.  It started off like this....

Can I Get A Whoop Whoop? A Fine Start... from Confessions of a Fabric Addict

Hi, all!

Well, here it is, Friday again - and, at least unofficially, summer has arrived!  This has truly been the strangest year, hasn't it?  And it's almost halfway over.  But strange or not, it's Friday, and that means it's time to get our whoop whoop on!  Are you ready? Then let's get started!

*&*&*&*&*&*&*

My week started off pretty normal - I had a t-shirt commission quilt to work on so I started bright and early Tuesday morning deconstructing shirts and making the blocks.  By Wednesday afternoon, I had a rough layout set out....

Can I Get a Whoop Whoop? #ufonomore from Confessions of a Fabric Addict

Hi, all!

Friday has rolled around again - the tenth, I think, since we started staying home.  The days all roll together, but it's always good to remember when Friday rolls around and we get our whoop whoop on, isn't it?  So let's get started!

*&*&*&*&*&*&*


On April 13th, I took this picture, of nine quilt tops I had pieced since moving to our new house.  Oh the shame of it!  But I put Jolene back to work, and this week I finished the last of those quilts!


First to be finished were four baby quilts that are now ...

Are you old enough to have the Doublemint Gum commercial jingle rolling through your head now?  Sorry about that!  But it was definitely rolling around in my head when I finished my second quilt today!  First up is this fun pineapple quilt....


One of our nieces is expecting a baby in August, and she requested a pineapple quilt ...

*&*&*&*&*&*&*

I had the best time this week - I got to spend one-on-one time with both my granddaughters in the sewing room!  First one was Lilli...


...who apparently sews standing up!  She's pretty sure she knows everything about sewing, so I just let her create on her own.  One day she'll want to make something "real" and she ...

Can I Get A Whoop Whoop? Making Progress.... from Confessions of a Fabric Addict

Hi, all!

Happy May Day!  Bet you thought April would n-e-v-e-r end, right?  And it may stay April on my whiteboard calendar - because I managed to pick up a sharpie instead of a whiteboard marker when I filled in the dates last month!  Oops..... Oh well, along with the first of May it's a Friday, and you know what that means - time for us to get our whoop whoop on!  So let's get started!

*&*&*&*&*&*&*
