Can I Get A Whoop Whoop? Floating Boxes Tutorial Unveiled!!

Hi, all!

Friday again!!  Can you believe it?  And it's a very special Friday around here - today is my beautiful daughter's 30th birthday!!  



Well, actually, she doesn't have a birthday this year - she's a leap year baby - but for some reason she insists on celebrating each year.  ;-)


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

And remember these quilts?







Well, today the tutorial for the child's size (in the bottom two pictures) is running on the Benartex blog, Sew In Love {With Fabric}!!  It was so exciting to be asked to participate in their Kids' Quilts Blog Hop, and definitely fun to play with their cute children's fabrics!  The quilt above is made with the Yard Dog line - just adorable!!

I hope you'll hop over to their blog and check out the tutorial - there's also a giveaway associated with the hop!!  Then come back here and link up your own Whoop Whoop, and if you want a PDF copy of the tutorial, ask for one in a comment.  I'll email it to you right away!  (If you think there's any chance you might be a no-reply blogger, please please please put your email address in your comment.  I will send the tutorial to everyone I can reach by email, but unfortunately there are several of you who routinely leave comments who are no-reply bloggers.  I always respond to comments, so if you've never received a reply from me, you're probably a no-reply blogger!)


And here's a picture of the same block made up in a different layout, using all scraps.  Useful little block!

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

And on another front, I'm whooping about how many sponsors have responded to my call for help with the Hands2Help Charity Quilt Challenge!  It's exciting to see some new sponsors this year, too!  (And if you want to help sponsor, just drop me a line.) Signups are coming up soon - March 16th! Stay tuned for more info soon.  and grab the button for your blog if you want to - it's right there at the top of the right side bar!

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

So that's my whoop whoop for the week!!

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

And now it's your turn!

What are you doing the happy dance about today?


Share!  We want to dance along with you!

And if it's your first time here, remember, 
it doesn't have to be a finish -
just something you're happy about accomplishing!

The party will remain open until Sunday night -

Hope to see you there!

Hugs!

Sarah

  5. Congrats! I've loved seeing your progress on the Comma quilt. The Yard Dog line is so fun. I love how you've made three quilts with the same pattern and all of them look unique. I've been crazy busy, but have nothing I can share to show it yet. Hopefully next week I'll have something.

  13. Whoop-whoop for your daughter's 30th birthday and your quilt pattern! Wanna hear a funny? I went to the Benartex site to see the tutorial, and after looking at all the cute dog prints, when I got to "WOF" my brain read it as "woof"! :)

    I'd love a PDF of your pattern.

    If I can figure out a way to photograph a finished quilt in this nasty, cold weather and dark house, I'll have a link this week!
