    What a wonderful group of Pineapple Blocks Ggal, can't wait to see it together. I pulled out my pineapple quilt and now have it on the back of my lounge chair. Lots of memories in that quilt, my best friend and I travelled all night on a bus to participate in a quilting retreat, then rearranged our motel room so we could sew all night spent 2 days sewing then all night on a bus again to get home. SHE didn't go to work on Monday but I did We both still have our quilts..

    Great story Mirabelle!

    I found a quilt lay-out I think will work with my Laurel Birch fabric. What do you think?

    That would be perfect! You might have to change the size of the block to preserve the largest globes and if it feels to busy to have every block fussy cut, then use an alternating fabric that reads solid. That would be a perfect place for embroidered work to compliment the theme of the quilt. You do have the machine that can work that magic!

    Anael, I personally don't like it..I think it clashes, it's too dark, hard looking.. Gold, blue, light to med pinky purple, even a soft green would be much better...

    DH dropped an envelope yesterday when he went out to get the mail....He brought it in this morning with the newspaper...My MB from JeanieG was in it...A great block, perfectly pieced..will take a photo later in the day...

    QE--nice ideas for Anael's focus fabrics!
    What a great fruit salad of blocks you have GGal! A winner Dublb. This is a reminder I've got to get my MB done--I'm not as ahead of the game as some of you are.
    Going out to pick some apples for my QB. They are Firesides--a nice eating apple as well as baking. They are so good cooked in brown sugar and butter in a cast iron skillet on the stove top--but need to be watchful as the butter sugar mixture can burn easily. Don't ask me how much I just toss
    Then having lunch with my cousin; her sister; their aunt (a 95 yo quilter!) and another cousin so my day is gone.
    Last night decided to rearrange my sewing area so it's all chaos again. Just didn't like the configuration as everytime the phone rang I'd have to walk around the cabinets. Lucky for me they are moveable so I moved them after paying bills and running to town. Now to get everything back into it's proper place.
    Hope to get some garden work done tomorrow. Could be the only day this week as it could "Four letter word inserted" end of the week.
    Have a good day everybody!

    Just saw additional posts--I agree with Honchey- Anael. How about a gold and use the dark fabric (love the gold tones in it) for your corner triangles of one of the snowball blocks.

    Our garden is done for the summer; I cried a bit when I looked at it yesterday...had not looked at it for a long while. Terrible. Black cabbage, dead tomato vines, etc. Not a nice garden at all. Guess its ready for Halloween...although no pumpkins.

    One more piece to finish my SYE block three. I chose to 'do it my way'.
