More Squirrel Blocks Made

 My Pineapple Quilt has been mailed off to
Rebecca Grace and I cannot wait to see what
she does from her end.  She really works magic on my quilts.

While straightening my Hidey Hole the other day,
I began to put away the scraps from this quilt
and they said "NO WAY!".

Of course, I had to listen.

This is where I am today.
I may add sashing in between the big blocks,
but I'll decide once all of the pieces are made.

I see a HST's that need to be moved! 
Playing with these scraps just makes me smile.

The last of the nine patches are laid out and ready to sew. 

This may end up being a baby quilt.... 
a big baby quilt, though.
A niece is due in April and this quilt could be
used for a boy or girl, in my opinion.

In the evenings, I've been doing a little
needle-turn applique.
It's been a while since I've done any of this
and the rust needed to be knocked off, for sure.

Here is the first block.

The pattern has that purple petal hanging down like that,
but I'm not sure it's going to stay like it is.
This pattern is called Fields of Flora
and can be found here.
Happy Quilting!

such wonderful use of your left overs - I love the colors so I was delighted see as I was scrolling through another quilt with the same fabric!

Your pineapple quilt is so pretty. I love the colors. You found a great way to use up those scraps. I agree the colors will work for a boy or girl baby quilt. I don't do needle-turn applique' but you have a nice start on your block. I found you on Sarah's Can I Get A Whoop Whoop linky.

Great use of your left overs. Love the colors and the quilts are so pretty. Pretty applique block too.

OH MY GOODNESS, you overachiever, you!!! You have nearly made an entire new quilt already from the scraps, just in the time it took the postman to bring me your pineapple top. I love it! And hooray for the needleturn applique, too!

Your appliqué is stellar. Nice points, smooth curves. Can’t tell you’re rusty!

Oh wow, the leftover quilt is awesome!
