finally...



YEAH... 121 pineapple blocks are sewn and now on to the fun bit- arranging them! Special thanks to my QuiltCoach whose care package arrived just in time to include some lovely green and white striped fabric. Now I just need to get my handsome "assistant" out of the garden this weekend, off to Home Depot and then into my sewing room, so I can put these babies up on new design walls...

  2. Thanks Nedra! I actually sewed an extra block by mistake which will go on the back as a label. It was a bit of a haul sewing all those pieces- all 4026 of them but I'm glad I did it!

    1. Thank you LeeAnn! I think this one may qualify as #7 of Victoria F-W's challenges "to make the quilt you said you'd never make". It has been a learning experience!
