Looks like the pinks won...



But really, there was a compromise as I added green coping strips to the center block. Don't you wish there were coping strips for people? Things that would help us fit in? I digress. So I sewed this one together and went...eh... not for me. And then I found a pattern for an easy pineapple block and sewed that up- like that much more. I just left off the last two rows of strips on the corners. I could see me making a few of those at a time and eventually having enough for a quilt. My friend just wants a little something to put under some hand painted china. The pineapple block is 17 inches and the other(monstrosity) is 28 inches. Think the smaller will suit her better, but ya never know, so I'll quilt them both up. The chevron one isn't as bad as it looks... I hope.
Friday kicks off our Feast Season, for those of you that have been popping in to see when it starts. You didn't think we cancelled do you? Never! And we love sharing it with you. It's going to be a blast!
And Sarah, my "new" look is NOT orange. It's nutmeg. And you call yourself a quilter...sad sad sad.

Excuse me - NUTMEG! Still too close to Orange for my taste! Love both of the blocks! The past couple of days would be perfect for sewing - but of course I am subbing for a teacher all week. And then trying to get the house refinanced so that means running all over creation! Anyway - no sewing going on here. Miss you!

Like both blocks A LOT. Want a copy of the pineapple pattern, please? Girls aprons are in the wash...along with tote fabric that was a bit musty with pressing. Wash first, then sew in that case. XOXOXOXO

I like them both but lean toward the pineapple.
