Girlfriend's Giggle

I got in some speed sewing yesterday and here is the finished top of the whirly giggle for my friend. Now I'm off to the LQS to grab some batting and something cute for the back and this baby will be ready to quilt! I'm NOT going to do the same quilting I used for my daughter's, it took way too long. I think I'll be sticking with straight lines. You may notice some of the fabric I won from Fran's giveaway. Since I didn't buy any fabric for this top, just used scraps I had plus the wonderful stuff I won, I think it's okay to give as a gift. A quilt is definitely waaaay out of our circle's gift budget, so I'm rationalizing it this way.
Got whirly giggle fever? I know I do! Check out this beautiful quilt. Once I've got this one quilted I'm moving on to a whirly giggle for the baby. And then I think I'll take a giggle break. I'd love to try this, but I'll need to do a bit of fabric shopping first, my stash is really shriking. I should be working on the stars quilt for my mum, but I need a break from it....something about it needs fixing and I'm just not in the mood!

That is so cute! I can't wait to see it quilted and finished.

Not actually buying much for the quilt certainly keeps it in the budget range, in my book. Love the colours. You always choose so well.

Hi...I was just skulking around and taking a look at my favourite blogs and more or less catching up on what's going on in blog land.
I was so happy to see that you actually used that fabric you won. I was looking at your posting of March 13th and said "wait a minute, don't I remember putting some of that on the giveaway?" I'm so glad it came to good use. Your quilts are beautiful by the way and...I LOVE the colours. I've 2 daughter's and 6 grandaughters so pink is always a favourite with me.
'See' you again soon. Still don't know when I'll start blogging again, there are still of lot of 'stuff' going on that I still have to take care of, but it usually all works out in the end, even if the end is not always
