Pineapple Blossom (UFO Reveal #5) & Update on #4

Well, I opened box #2 today... I kind of wish I could put it back ;) It has two projects in it that aren't even started, and one that's barely a beginning.

Without further ado... the next one up is my Christmas Pineapple Blossom. Colene hosted a swap for these blocks on the quilting.about.com forum a while back (I don't know when, and I'm not sure I want to!). The free pattern is from Quiltville, and it was fun to make. I've got 40 of these 9" blocks, which again, might not be quite enough. I could sash them like Bonnie did in the pattern, but I kind of like them better without it. Here are four block:


This one would be pretty easy to finish up, though!

In other news... my mom says the pics of the indigo blocks from yesterday are really pink on her monitor -- like to the point of being ugly. I hope that's not the case for everyone -- they're really very white. Because I love you, here's the 6x6 setting for those beauties:

dear mom bigger

I should have mentioned yesterday that this setting was inspired by Beth Ferrier's Moondance -- a block of the month from a few years back. It's not a copy, but you can definitely see her influence in the lines. Looking at the image now, I think I'd probably do the outer row more as half setting blocks, to finish the "circle" around each block, but not have the blue feet trailing off ;)

I love your UFO blocks together. They make a great star.

Thanks for posting the mock up of the Indigo quilt. I love the setting that you've done. I think it'll really set the blocks off.

Love and hugs Gina xxx
