Weekend Work

Well, all the blocks are under construction- yea!! It will finish at 20 blocks. I've definitely found the groove, just still trying to maintain enough contrast. This has a really different look to me than a lot of pineapple quilts. I may be able to manipulate the look with the border. Still thinking.....
Here are two I Spy quilts I've made that I will be consigning to sell at our upcoming Great Gulf Coast Arts Festival. Our Guild has a booth in the Heritage Arts section and I'll be working a shift. It's always a favorite time for me. It will be the first weekend in November if any of you are in the Pensacola area.
This one is for a little girl. Not sure why the colors didn't really show up very well.
This one is a for a boy. They are so much fun to do. I've done several special orders that include the child's name and birthdate.
I have had so much fun collecting all these fabrics. I still have so much left so hopefully I'll sell both of them.
Hope you've had a restful weekend.
Until next time, make something beautiful.
-Karen

I like your I Spy quits very much. I've made three over the years for my grandchildren and have a few more to make before it's all over, I'm sure. Your pineapple quilt is wonderful!

The pineapple quilt is really coming together. 20 blocks is a lot! I know how long they take to sew. Your I Spy quilts are wonderful. I need to go through my stash of novelties and put some of these together. They'd be great for my guild's baby quilt outreach program - thanks for sharing!

Your pineapples are looking great. It's not a block I'd ever make, but I love the effect you've got there.

I missed this post! Where did all these pineapple blocks come from? The last time I looked, you only had a few. They're so gorgeous!

The I Spy quilts should be a big hit. Who wouldn't want a quilt like this for their little one?

The pineapple quilt is wonderful. Not something I've tried.

This quilt really sparkles. I must get around to creating a log cabin or pineapple quilt sometime soon. Happy stitching
