Can I Get A Whoop Whoop? A Mixed Bag... from Confessions of a Fabric Addict

Hi, all!

Wow!  Friday sure came on in a rush this week, didn't it?  But now that it's here, we all know what time it is - time to get our whoop whoop on!  Are you ready?  Let's get started!

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


Isn't that beautiful?  It's a quilt kit from Hancock Fabrics (that I don't own and don't have time to make) but I did think it was an appropriate start to today's post, the day after Valentine's Day.  It certainly made me whoop when I saw it in my email first thing that ...

Can I Get A Whoop Whoop? A Jewel-Toned Supernova! from Confessions of a Fabric Addict

Hi, all!

It's finally Friday again!  After a week of unseasonably (and gorgeously) warm temps, we are back down in the 30's again - but that just means more time for sewing and quilting, doesn't it?  And that's good cause to whoop it up a little - so it's a good thing it's Friday!  Let's get started!

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


A couple of weeks ago, my daughter called me and asked if I could make a quilt for her.  (This doesn't happen very often!) (surprisingly)   Her two youngest kids, Emmy and Nathanael, are both deaf and because ...

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

Hi, all!

In the throes of the cold weather this week, it didn't seem like Friday (and warmer weather) would ever get here - but it did!  It's finally Friday, and you know what that means - - - it's time for us to get our whoop whoop on.  We've all had lots of time for sewing this week with the cold keeping us in, so I imagine everyone has lots to share!  Let's get started!

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

I actually did have a finish this week, but I can't share it yet, as it still has to be gifted.  Next ...

Can I Get A Whoop Whoop? A Week of Finishes! from Confessions of a Fabric Addict

Hi, all!

It seems like most of the country has been in the grips of a cold snap this week, and we all know what that means - more time for sewing!  And since it's Friday, that means it's time for us to get our whoop whoop on!  Are you ready?  Let's get started!


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

I'm not very fond of cold weather, so staying snugged up in my nice warm studio is my idea of fun!  And I had a lot of fun this week, finishing up some projects both old and new.  


quilted these two tops ...

Can I Get A Whoop Whoop? A Whole Lotta Nothing.... from Confessions of a Fabric Addict

Hi, all!

Friday has rolled around again (so fast!) and that means it's time for us to get our whoop whoop on!  My week went by in a rush of multiple projects, none at any interesting stage, but I did do a few things that might be worth sharing.  So let's get started!

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

As I said, it's been a crazy week - lots of time spent with plumbers, a little time spent with my grandkids (wish that was more!), and a bunch of short times of sewing.  No finishes on that front, though.  However, I did have a ...

Can I Get A Whoop Whoop? Progress, But Not Completion... from Confessions of a Fabric Addict

Hi, all!

It's Friday again!  I hope you've been able to spend some time in your happy place and create something this week!  I've spent some time cleaning, but carved out some time to play with some fabric too.  So now it's time for us to get our whoop whoop on!  Let's go!

*&*&*&*&*&*

I've been busy for the past few weeks working on designs and samples for the quilts I'll be sharing later this month as part of the Rockin' Rectangles quilt-along.  The pictures below are just teasers (not to give away too ...

Can I Get a Whoop Whoop? There Be Whales Here! from Confessions of a Fabric Addict

Hi, all!

It's here - the very last Friday of the year!  And I couldn't let it pass without a chance for all of us to whoop it up.  I know you've got things you can share now that Christmas has passed, so here's your chance!  

I, on the other hand, have not been sewing this week - because I am in Maui, Hawaii!!  So I have something a little different to whoop it up about.   Let's get started!

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

We decided back in February to take a trip to celebrate our 40th wedding anniversary, and because we ...

Can I Get A Whoop Whoop? 2018 Annual Quilts Are A Wrap! from Confessions of a Fabric Addict

Hi, all!

Oh my!  It's Friday, and not just any Friday, but the last one before Christmas!  I hope you've been making great headway on all your Christmas goody making, and have plenty to whoop about this week.  So let's get started!

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

As I've share previously, I make each one of my grandchildren a quilt each year at Christmastime, said quilt representing something about their life during the previous year.  I've already shared Nathanael's and Emmy's, so this week it's Lilliana's turn!


Meet my beautiful granddaughter Lilliana!  She just turned eleven ...

Can I Get A Whoop Whoop? Two Down, One to Go! from Confessions of a Fabric Addict

Hi, all!

It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas, isn't it?  I do love the holiday season, even though I spend a lot of it feeling rushed.  But when I take a minute to stop and enjoy, it's just wonderful!  


Wednesday night my oldest granddaughter Lilli had a mini-concert at a local mall, and we had a fun time watching her play the steel drums!  What do you like to do to slow down a little during the holiday season?

It is Friday again, though, and that means it's time to slow down a little ...

Can I Get A Whoop Whoop? One Down, Two to Go... from Confessions of a Fabric Addict

Hi, all!

Here we are at Friday again - and if you're like me, you've GOT to be finishing things at this point of the year!  Fortunately, my grands are too young to be getting on the internet and checking out my blog, so I can share what I'm working on for them.  So - are you ready to get your whoop whoop on?  Let's get started!

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

For those of you who may be new to my blog since last year, I have a tradition of making each of my grandchildren a quilt at Christmas.  It started when ...

Can I Get A Whoop Whoop? It's Beginning to Look a Lot Like... from Confessions of a Fabric Addict

Hi, all!

Another week has just whizzed by!  Doesn't it seem like they go faster the closer we get to Christmas?  I'm still trying to avoid seeing exactly how close it is, but it IS the last day of November - EEK!  I know we are close to the point where we won't be able to share easily (because secrets!) but I hope you'll still have something to share, even if it's not a finish!  So let's get started whooping it up!

*&*&*&*&*&*

There wasn't too much time for quilting or sewing this week, although ...

Can I Get A Whoop Whoop? Another Use For Quilting Tools... from Confessions of a Fabric Addict

Hi, all!

Are you still in a turkey coma?  As I sit here writing this post on Thursday night, I'm struggling to stay awake - because of a busy week and a huge Thanksgiving dinner at my daughter's house, oh, and a very comfortable chair!  But the fact remains that it's Friday, and that means it's time for us to get our whoop whoop on - so let's get started!

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

As I said, it's been a busy week, and I've been using my quilting tools - but not for quilting!  


These all came in very handy ...

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

Hi, all!

Friday sure got here in a hurry, didn't it? And Thanksgiving is less than a week away - say what???  Cold weather is upon us here in middle Tennessee, too - we actually had little spits of snow in the Nashville area, although they got more just west of us.  But since it's Friday, that means it's time for us to get our whoop whoop on - are you ready?  Let's go!

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

Wednesday I shared that I had a "squirrel" moment with my scraps (actually I think it was just so I didn't have to keep ...

Another week has flown by (is it REALLY less than 3 months until Christmas?) and it's Friday again!  And that means it's time for us to get our whoop whoop on - so let's get started!!

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


When I spotted this pattern on Lorna's website, I knew I had to have it for a certain little girl who is a unicorn (when she's not a mermaid)!  I decided that this would be Emmy's annual quilt this year.  I knew it would be perfect, especially after I asked her what her favorite color was, and ...
