Can I Get A Whoop Whoop? Another Big Project...

Hi, all!

Wow, here we are again - Friday has rolled around and it's time for us to get our whoop whoop on!!  Are you ready?  Let's get started!

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

This year, our quilt ministry (Piece*Love*Quilt) decided that they wanted to make quilts for our graduating seniors.  We started many months ago getting our tops made, and we've spent the last few weeks quilting and binding those tops.  Today I took care of the last step - taking pictures of those quilts!  I'm ready to share them with you now...
















Twenty-five quilts for our graduating seniors - a fun project and one we will probably continue! Most of these quilts are about twin sized. Some are made from tops donated by some of you.  Others are scrappy tops using some truly interesting fabrics - like the very bright quilt in the center of the first picture.  The fabrics in that quilt came from a box of fabric cut-outs - the leftovers after garment pieces were cut out of fabric for mass production.  I think they probably date from the early 1970s.  

So my whoop whoop for the week isn't mine alone - it's a big group effort with lots of people participating.  

Can we get a whoop whoop??

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

And now it's your turn!  

What's got you whooping it up?


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!

Hugs!

Sarah
