This is Kim!
Kim brought the smallest Show & Share to class!
Kim loves scraps as much as I do!
Kim has embarked on the Pineapple Crazy Train and we were all sharing in her excitement all weekend long by sending any little trimmed off triangle bits her way to add to her variety!
You know, it *IS* always more fun to sew with someone else’s scraps than to continue to bore ourselves silly with our own, and watching Kim go giddy over these little handfuls of happiness just made us ALL that much happier too!
Kim, the next time I see you, I am sure your Pineapple Crazy will be well on the way to being done, one block at a time!
When people gasp at the number of pieces in this quilt, my reply is “Yes, there ARE 45 pieces in each 5’’ block, but they are SHORT seams, they really don’t take all that long to do!”
The best part was, the pattern for Pineapple Crazy was found in the same book that our Saturday Talkin’ Turkey class used – String Fling!

Vintage Twin Sisters Quilt, 1950s
This was a special quilt made by a family member, a great grandmother if I remember correctly. Can you imagine all of these scraps as dresses, skirts, blouses, aprons, and all else? What a life these fabrics represent because they did indeed come from the scrap bag of a busy seamstress!
And that aqua? LOVE!!
There are many more photos to share, so pour yourself a cuppa something, put your feet up and enjoy. Remember you can use the controls on the screen to pause, reverse, go forward, etc.

Sadie and Jeff!
I made it home to Greensboro about 5pm last night, Jeff and Sadie pulling up to the curb to load the luggage in the back, and me in the front.
Doesn’t this girl look HAPPY to see me? It’s likely that she was just HOT…77 degrees when I landed! It was hot in Detroit for March, too. I’ll take it! Bye bye, winter of 2016!! We are not sad to see you GO!
Today is going to be a bit of a blur. I am washing the contents of my suitcase, repacking the trunk show bags with the workshop quilts for 3 guilds in Michigan. I leave tomorrow.
The first thing I saw in my email this morning was a notice from Delta telling me “It’s time to check in!” OH. Great.
I’m very excited about my Michigan groups – I am just NOT excited about hauling my carcass back to the airport tomorrow morning. I’ll be leaving my front door at 5:20am.
If I am a good girl and can stay off of Facebook, I’ll get all of the book orders caught up and to the post office by 4pm and I’ll have time to do a bit of quiet stitching this evening.
