Ah! Spring!

These little babies are 4.5" and very addictive....  
I have spring on my brain.... 
yellow daffodils, honey dew, and orange Popsicles....

Now what was I doing?

oh yeah...  
Now Back to your regularly scheduled program... 

Have a great weekend!

(Did I mention it's 60 degree out today?)


Some of you know my friend Solange, some of you don't...She has some news!

I have a wee favor to ask you... My dear sweet friend, who up and moved to Colorado on me....
a writer.
She is also a hard working, single young mother, and a very special friend to me.

She has written a story, that has gotten chosen as a finalist,
and I would really love it if you could go on over, have a read, and vote for her.

voting is open until march 15th for the finalists.

If you don't have the time, I understand...  But please have a look...before you delete...

thank you,


  1. So cute! They look bigger than 4.5". We hit the mid-60s and I saw green bits of daffodils popping up through the ground.

  2. YEEEEHAWWW!! I feel it too! Your blocks just pushed me further over the edge! ADORABLE!!

  3. Very many for king size!!!

  4. How sweet. I love them. I'm working on a logcabin bow tie quilt but my blocks are 6". Can't wait to see your finished quilt. Hugs.

  5. so lovely! I love your spring colors here.. did you happen use paper piecing on this project?
    It is 8 degree and feels -14 degree in ND. I started to think that this time of NYC is about to have lots tulips in Battery park and I have always like to take the ferry around this time of the year.. have a great day, V!

  6. Who knew we both had green and red projects going? Yours are definitely more springy!! I'm very partial to pineapple blocks, how big are your strips? This looks great!

  7. These blocks are lovely! I adore the colors, which are perfect for this pattern too. Definitely gets me in the mood for spring!

  8. Your scrappy pineapples look so good together. They each have an improvised look, yet all are held together by the center. Hmmm.....I feel a metaphor coming on!

  9. Love those pineapple! Great color of course!

  10. Oooh! those quilt blocks are gorgeous!!

  11. Oh, so cute! I have some pineapple fabric from Senegal that might be just the thing to go with these. I'll put it in my suitcase right now!

  12. Are you paper piecing these blocks? they are wonderful! I don't want to rub it in, but we have been in the 80's for the past 4 days. It will be cooler, mid 70's, this weekend.

  13. Those little blocks are gorgeous!!

  14. Now I'm feeling a little tropical seeing your pineapple salsa blocks! It's warmer than it was in Michigan and things are thawing, BUT there is supposed to be measurable snow on Sunday...UGH!

    The warmth is nice while it is here.

    In stitches,
    Teresa :o)

  15. Addictive, indeed. They look great. Can't wait to see what becomes of these little jewels.

  16. I'm with Mary, they're great and I can't wait to see what you're going to do with them!

    60s....sigh...we probably won't see a 60 until late March, maybe? On the other hand I'll be out in California next month and I'll get a nice dose of spring that will keep me going until it arrives here! (more snow in the forecast for the weekend...after Wednesday's 5 inches!)

  17. I really enjoyed Solange's story about Camille. Voted for it and Gave it a good review. Hope it helps. It reminded me of the short stories of O'Henry and other of that era. Nicely done.
    Lov ethose springy blocks!

  18. I'm really loving the little pineapples! I had pineapple for breakfast. I'll pop over and read Solange's story.

  19. Those are fun little blocks! Red an green Christmas flowers...Spring and green've got green on the brain!

    p.s. Congrats on the 200th Basics quilt!

  20. I also wanted to know if they were paper pieced and if so where did you find such a little pattern?

  21. yes, they are paper pieced!

    Thanks guys for all the pineapple love! they are such little cuties! Hope you make some too! Maybe it will being spring a little faster! ;-)

  22. Oh they are so cute! I just want to do pinneaples!
