Eating My Words

Good morning! It's nice and cool this morning how about where you are? I know it will warm up here inland, but again, we're headed to the coast to finalize the apartment situation. Woo hoo, Frankie has her first apartment. Well she will later on this summer.
But as usual, I just blather on. And speaking of blathering, I think I was saying at one point that I was having a hard time imagining using some of the new bold prints in more traditional blocks. I'm way too lazy to look back and link to the spot, but trust me, if I didn't blog it, I surely said it.
So when Sherry Hutchens came in last week with this amazing Pineapple Star quilt I was Blown Away!! She took a class from Valerie Yeaton and used this book.

Sherry, thanks for letting me take your picture for my blog.I can see why you have a big smile on your face! This foundation pieced star is amazing. I love your color selections, and particularly that you used some Amy Butler and some Jinny Beyer.Talk about opposite ends of the spectrum.
I can't believe how great this turned out. The kaleidoscope effect of the center is amazing.
I think we all agree Sherry, this one needs to be entered into PIQF!

All right my little pineapples I hope you all have fabulous weekends! Off to the coast!

That quilt top is amazing! The most beautiful design and color combinations!

We are heating up - after a week of cooling off. I can always tell we're going to get some heat, especially when it gets hot in Portland and then the Bay area! It's reaching us now!

I can't really believe my eyes. A human being MADE that? It's amazing!! I'm just quilting rectangles right now. Sheesh. That's just beautiful.

Yeah, it's hot here. Good for tomatoes, not good for me.

It's 80, but feels like 84 and later it will be 96 but feeling like 102!! I'm in Sarasota, Fl. I stopped by to see what you were up to and needed to say- That quilt is simply gorgeous! I love Amy's fabrics and had one quilt shop owner tell me she wasn't carrying them because the designs were too big and no one would buy them. umph! I buy mine on line! Thanks for sharing that with us!!

Hey Pammie, I'm sitting in the hotel lobby in Oregon & we are checking out to head for the coast. The Sisters Quilt Show was WONDERFUL! The gaggle of girls had a blast. See you soon.
