Racing Toward Another Deadline...

Brynwood Needleworks - Pineapple Blocks

I set this aside for too long as I tackled other projects. Now, it's time to get back to them. When I have the number of blocks I need - forty eight, or when I run out of block fabrics - I'll assemble  them into a quilt.

I'm shooting for a finished size of 60" x 80", including borders. For these 10" finished blocks, that means I need six across by eight down...forty eight blocks. I already have nineteen finished. I have a few to go. (winking - or is that nervous twitching?)

I really don't think the fabric will last long enough to make forty eight blocks, but I'll keep making them and see where I end up.  I can always beef it up with a coordinating border or two to get to my target size.

Did I tell you that this will be an entry in our February quilt show? Are you laughing? It's okay. I am, too. I have one or two other projects to finish by then. Well, pull up a chair and hang on. It's going to be an exciting ride to see if I can get these finished in time.
PS. Today Mom would have been 88 years old.
I miss you more than words can say.
Happy Birthday in Heaven, Mom.

If you were snowed in like I am today, those projects would have no trouble getting finished. I really like the fabrics you have used in that quilt. It is going to be a winner!

I love pineapple quilts. I, too, have one that I have postponed way too long. It's ready to be quilted but it is huge, so layering it will be a chore and I just cannot decide how to quilt it! Good luck with your entry!
