Whooping in Friday this week!

This has been a busy and productive week in our home… lots of Ebay selling happening with paper crafting products from my personal stash here… and some quilt making too! 

Today I want to share what I am most excited about 🙂  And it started with this…

Medium polka dot tone on tone white fabric and some fun bright red/white and blue/white charm packs I found on Ebay for a deal!  The template I got at my LQS when Jenny Doan visited… and I am making her Tumbler Flag Quilt from this vid tutorial 🙂

Her finished one looks like this…

Right now I have the middle pieced in vertical rows… per Jenny’s instructions for easy completion and it is easy!  I started with the blue/white blocks…

Once I was happy with the layout I cut them into tumblers with the template.. assuring any chevrons with a directional print were going as the flag waves 🙂

Soon I had this all done!

By Thursday night I had gotten it to this point…

Today I will be busy with Ebay and ironing seams and sewing these vertical columns together 🙂
And now I have decided the borders… I wasn’t too keen on the fabric I had planned for this and wanted weightier fun borders on this project… it will hang in my entry!

And I finally decided on a patriotic fabric with hibiscus flowers on it and a white thinner inner border too!  All from my stash!  WHOOP!

So hopefully I will have a flimsy to show off Sunday… if not before 🙂

I plan to miter the inner and outer borders and just have fun with this project… not sure of the backing yet but the binding most likely will be some red I added in from my stash also 🙂  And I have enough left over to make another flimsy!  WHOOP!

Hope you have a Friday to Whoop about too..
