My Whoop this week is this lovely quilt that was started by a lady who used to be in our quilt ministry. She passed away and I purchase her started quilt and some other fabric at her estate sale. She did all the hard work for me. All the geese were made, and 5 of the 6 rows were sewn together! I was glad because flying geese are not my favorite to make. All the fabric was there to finish the quilt (plus a lot of scraps) except the large strip of purple for the back of the quilt.
I was able to find some at my local quilt shop. I finished the top and bottom in 1 day - so fun and so fast! She was one who ironed her seams to the side, a new thing for me. I'm an open the seams kinda girl. New things learned from an old pro. I would have never picked these fabrics either - they're not matchy-matchy. But they really look nice in this quilt. I learned I need to stretch outside of my comfort zone sometimes when picking fabric.
I have 2 more quilts using her Hawaiian fabric almost done. That will be for next week.
Linking up with Sarah - Can I Get a Whoop Whoop. She's raising money to help her daughter adopt a little boy from China (his name will be Nathanael). You can help out by making a donation and get a chance to win a beautiful quilt at the same time! The details are on this blog post, hop over there and check it out.
Hope you enjoyed stopping by!
