Pineapple Princess quilt top

My mojo has stayed with me through the weekend and I could not be more pleased! I was able to finish the baby quilt top which I have named Pineapple Princess! It is Katy's favorite song and since this will be going to a precious bundle in San Diego it seems more than appropriate.

These stars were made using the fabulous Solstice Stars Series tutorials from Faith at Fresh Lemons.




I shot a photo since I was not sure I would be able to get one with the sashing on, the rains were coming!

We had a bit of a wind issue but that seems to always be the case :o)

As the skies were turning dark I was able to get one last shot before the rain started. It measures 46x46, the perfect baby on the floor and cuddling size!


I had a HUGE surprise on Saturday night when I found out that the AMAZINGLY talented Laurie of Laurie Tigner Designs will be doing the quilting for this quilt!!!!!  I could not be more excited!!!!!

Now I just have to figure out the back ;o)

I also saw this and had to share! Sara at Sew Sweetness has done a tutorial for this SUPER cute bag.  How can there be room for SO MUCH talent in such a tiny little person? Fantastic job Sara! Perfect Spring bag!!!

I redrew the winner  for the giveaway and it is Jo from Warm Fuzzys !!!!! Congratulations Jo! I will be emailing you today or tomorrow to get your information!!!!!


Finally, I was able to sit down with the in house engineer and Visio and after much discussion on the differences of real math vs sewing math {apparently there are some concept differences}we were able to get the pattern completed for the View Master block so I will have that tutorial up THIS WEEK!!!!

Pretty baby quilt! Love the colors! Looking forward to your tutorial.

What a great quilt! I usually use fabrics that read like solids, but aren't. However, I am rethinking that theory. This quilt is stunning! Well done.

Hugs!

Great way to join those blocks up, the top looks fab!

I did have to giggle a bit at the real maths v sewing maths issue, you don't want to see the headaches I've given myself working out a few things recently, and I have a degree in maths and computer science ;o)
