Finishing up 2013 with a Finish on Design Wall Monday

Now this is the way I wanted to close out the year... another top finished and ready to go to the long arm quilter. This is my Kaffe Pineapple Blossom quilt. You can find the pattern here on Bonnie Hunter's website. I made the 12" block. You can find the cutting instructions about halfway down the page.



OH CARP... I just saw that the block in the top row, second from the right is a mutant... the last triangles are on the wrong side... how did I miss that???  Okay, I'll be taking that out today... at least there is still have one more day in 2013.

I think you can tell this isn't on the wall, it is on the floor of my sewing room. I have another quilt on the wall I didn't want to disturb. I had a hard time photographing this quilt. The color is really hard to capture, but suffice to say it is really BRIGHT!!! An overload of cheddar... a melted mass of color!

Here are some close-ups of the fabrics..



It came out bigger than I thought it would. That happens to me a lot. I was going for a throw size and this ended up 76" square. Well, that will be a generous throw.

Here's hoping the 2014 is a productive year for all of us!
Happy stitching-

  1. Leave it in! Just call it your humility block. It's so pretty and colorful I didn't notice anything amiss until you pointed it out.

  2. Bold and beautiful! I use my floor as well as I have a "do not disturb" project on the design wall. Isn't there a saying "bigger is better???"

  3. Well, you could leave it, but I'll bet it will bug you every time you look at the quilt. It would me. It is a beautiful and bright throw...great colors.

  4. It would never bother me to leave it. With those wild colors, I wouldn't even have noticed, if you hadn't said something, and I still had to really look to find it. I easily see how you missed it!
