WHOOMP There IT Is! #5

I’m glad you could make it to this week’s WHOOMP There IT Is! Welcome. 
I’ve got news to share.

In case you missed it…I sell on Etsy! 😉 What’s even more exciting is I got my 1st custom quilt order 2 days after taking the shop off vacation status! Yay Me! I’ve already started on the order, but I won’t show pics until it’s received by my customer. Though I will tell you…it’s going to be fabulous!

There is something else I’ve been working on that I can’t show yet either. I’ve been learning to paper piece. The paper piecing process is quite fascinating and my sweetheart of an instructor says I’m doing a bonny job.

Have you heard of Quilt Art Designs?  If you haven’t, you should check it out. Janeen, the owner, is a real gem. She has a ton of paper pieced block patterns in her Craftsy Store Pattern Shop. Several of them are even FREE! She also does custom orders. I sent her a few pics and she magically turned them into awesome paper pieced patterns!

Anyway,  I’m working on one of the patterns she made for me, which will be a Christmas gift for a friend, that’s why I can’t show it yet.  But this is extremely difficult for me because it is AMAZING and I verra much want to share my progress w/the entire world! Well, to be honest, I have shown it to a few friends I know I can trust and even leaked a diddy or two on instagram…but there’s no way the intended recipient would ever know what it is. I’m extremely pleased w/how it’s coming out and I’m verra much looking forward to sharing the finished piece w/all of you.

I’m sorry I can’t show pics of what I’m currently working on.  I’m hoping some of y’all have projects that aren’t as secret as mine because it’s time to link up and share!
