More tops to add to the WIP list

I received my spool blocks from the Hand Dids exchange ( a yahoo group) and they are together now!! I need to pick a nice border for it. This is what I worked on so much in September. The block is easy but I found it very hard to get the points lined up. Of course, my blocks were the ones that needed a bit of easing to line up right. Sigh, my X blocks were like that too. I feel so inadequate sometimes! Someone hand-pieced their blocks in the batch too. My hero!!!




The last pineapple was made for this top. I think I have enough of the fabrics left to make a border for it. This is a rough layout. I love pineapples but I am going to rest from this pattern for a little bit. They are exhausting to make.


I need to get basting!! And finishing.

Another beautiful and unseasonably warm day. I went for a walk and it was a no -jacket- needed -type of day. Very unusual for November here. First day of deer season is tomorrow, so I will have an afternoon to myself. I am working on not catching my DS swine flu. He is getting better, hopefully he will be back in the old routine Monday.

I love your pineapple blocks. The colors are beautiful and it does look like a lot of work. My hubby has a cousin down from Charlevoix for opening day. I promised breakfast at the 10:00 break and the rest of the day is mine. I did some shopping in Grand Rapids today and also ran around without a jacket. Very strange weather but who is complaining. Glad you son is getting better!

I find getting points to match a challenge. You did a beautiful job!

Love the pineapple blocks too! I've never tried to make one but it does look like a lot of work.

Love your spools! I even see a few of mine in there! I wonder if I got some of yours??? And the pineapples love beautiful!!

Conni, I am sure you got a few of mine! I had the brown spools and the light green leaf pattern. It really turned out to be a nice quilt top. I love the exchanges at Hand Dids
