    JanieW ... you must be the FUN Grandma with all the things you do with your Grands! Careful with your training and your knee. Still lots of time to ramp up to the 10 km. Stay comfortable with your 5-7kms and that will help to strengthen the knee. You sure don't want damage!! BTW it's easier to go from the 7 to 10, than from the 5 to 7, so you'll be OK!! Now I understand why the MB cheering (and now hating ON after today's game!) ... Don't give up on your Blue Bombers. After all, if the Argos can do it, all things are possible!

    MiraB ... With the speed that you work at I know you have lots of time to get your DDs quilt finished for her birthday. You could still add on the extra chain blocks, if you wanted. Or instead of the piano keys, do a border of all the fabrics, done in squares the same size as your chain square, just that there'd be no white. Here's hoping that monsoon is not quite so bad as predicted. Just make sure you have lots of quilting supplies on hand ... and a few groceries for survival!

    GGal et al .... There are PP Pineapples in Quilters Cache -- 4", 6", 7" and 15". Or maybe you could get one of the EQ specialists to draw up the PP pattern and we could all use the same one?

    Isa and Bram both had a quiet night! So no news from the SewGrands

    I'm busy cleaning here, it's not my favorite job but after 6 months something had to be done I was downstairs at 6.15 am, made a FWS block and started cleaning! Now I'm having a break, coffee and read a bit on the board.

    Yes, Karen. Stay safe.
    QuiltE...I looked at Quilters Cache first but didn't find the right size. 12 inches must not be very common for the pineapple.
    Jeanie....the small valance is an adaptation of a table runner from my M&M class. The block was 7 inches and I just added the tabs. The larger "grew" out of the first in an effort to make the valances cover the same proportion of the window. It used a 15 inch block and the finished size was 18" x 65". The tabs are 3 inches. I used a silk bat just to give it some stability but it still hangs well.

    Ice, Ice, ice, and I am not talking about ice cream. Ice storm. Schools are trying to go ahead on hard surface only this week. Hoping the forty degree temperature will melt some of it.

    Must go into Unionville this morning, eleven miles on hard surface roads. Will update after the fact, if we get to go.

    Take care, Karen and be safe.

    Ok Ladies, I just figured it out that if you make a 2.5" center and make the strips 1-1/8" it comes out to a 12" finished block...I haven't made a pineapple block yet so I guess the red corners are added to square up the block after adding the strips??? I figured out if you need 5 inches on the sides you divide the common denomination of 1/8"s evenly across the 5" that = 40 -1/8" divide that by a number that goes into 40 evenly which is 8. 8 rows of 5/8" = 40 add the seam allowance and you have 1-1/8" strips......You will have 8 rows of 5/8" strips finished...

    OR We could check with GGal to see if a 3" (2.5" finished) red center with 1.25" (3.4" finished) strips would work for her... What do you say GGal...I would think that if you want the blocks to be uniform we need to know what size finished center 2" or 2.5" center?

    So, I made the block like the instructions said on GG's block; 2 1/2 inch center, red, and 1 1/4 inch strips of muslin and color like this:Name:  DSCN0060.JPG
Views: 89
Size:  65.5 KB and it ocmes out 11.5 square. solution: possible slashing of 1 inch around it. or redo with different math. this is my third try that do work out, surprised myself by doing it. Garden Gal, is that ok with you or shall I redo?

    I must say, Garden Gal, the instructions were easy to follow on the pineapple block. I did not think I could do it, then on the third try, it happened. It surprised me. Sometimes when something challenges us, we can take it on or pass on it...it was what you wanted so I gave it a try. And after a good night's sleep, I can do it again. Still enjoying the trail ride, all your comments, and being on QB together.

    Anne, thanks for the figures; Janie and her dh had figured out the math earlier on in this discussion, but I had done this by then. Will see what Garden Gal wants to do, the picture may be worth 1000 words. I do have all the blocks chosen for each of you and colors desired noted on each. So I hope I am on the right track of this trail ride. Let's meet in the RV for Hot tea or coffee.

    Honchey....I admire your versitility if math! Let's go for the 3 inch center and 1 1/4 inch strips. Doing anything to the eighths is just asking too much.
    QNS...again if you have finished your block, don't redo it. I'll make it work. The same goes for anyone else. It was my error.

    Pardon me, GardenGal, but is the extra 1/2 inch going to make the square an inch more at the outside edge? I think, and I will try this, cutting a 2 1/2 inc square and 1 1/2 strips with yield another inch on each side and that is all that we need to have a 12 1/2 inch square. You all with EQ7 can figure that out, too.

    Anael ... houeswork and cleaning are over-rated. Go back to quilting!!

    GGal ... now you know why I was asking about what pattern to use! For something like Pineapples I think PPing would be good, to help keep it all nicely squared up.

    Will be waiting to see/hear what the final decisions are on this!

    QNS, lovely block! It's not wonky though so GG won't know it's from you

    QuiltE, in this case it's not over-rated, it was under-rated It really needed to be done but now I'm looking at crips clean curtains and when I open them (which I don't) I would see clean and shiny windowpanes! Tomorrow is another day, the citchen curtains needs to be washed as well. They're close to the dishwasher and I noticed some coffee stains.

    Re: pineapple block. I'm in EQ now to investigate. Then I remembered I added to a tute her on board.

    http://www.quiltingboard.com/tutoria...k-t140626.html

    Go to post # 33. Pdf is #39, but alas the finished block is 6 1/2" or a finished 13" block if one would keep adding rounds. Starting center 2 1/2" and 1 1/4" sides.

    PS Made it to DH MD appt. no trouble--more snow tonight and tomorrow. DH is on strong anti inflammatory drug and therapy. Back in 2 weeks and will see if surgery is necessary.

    I have a 12" pineapple that I printed out but I don't know how to send it so it's the proper size for you guys... I can 1/4 it then you can print 4 of them and tape them to pp them. how's that sound...not to figure out how to do it...oh is this fun or what????? I'll send it to myself first to see if it comes out the right size...

    Ok a question here? Does it really make any difference as long as we all make finished 13" pineapple blocks for GGal? This seems to be the only block it's a problem with right? Then let's give GGal an extra inch (as long as she doesn't take an extra mile) Comments?

    Gee, this is a good work out for the real thing. I went back to page 206 #2049 to download GG instructions again and saved them this time. I tried to get into the groove again and spend my time ripping instead. Now it eat more chocolate and try again!

    If we had decided on 12 1/2, then I will shoot for that number...think I almost had it except I went back to log cabin mode in third row and had to rip it out again. Will post my numbers used on pineapple when I finish or others can if they get their numbers first. If I did it once I can do it again!!! How can we have one 13 and all the others 12 1/2 inches?

    Honchey...once again you amaze me. Thanks for all of your help. I was about to say either size but then....let's make them all 12 1/2. I had no idea that the pineapple block cause so much consternation. Thanks all of you for your patience with me.
    BTW...we all need Aneal's email if we are to send her the preview blocks. Maybe she could send it to you Honchey and you could forward it and that way it wouldn't be public on QB. Better ideas?
