Scrap Quilt top from Pineapple Fabrics is Finished

 I have been feeling under the weather and have had no energy,
but after a couple of days on an antibiotic,
the desire to sew has returned.
The blocks I started making with the scraps from my
Pineapple quilt are all sewn together
and borders have been added.
These colors just make my heart sing. 
They remind me of the ocean... sea glass... water of many types.

There is more blue in this border fabric than the photo shows.
And the quilt is even.  (I had to stand on a stool to get the whole thing
in the photo.)

I was thinking it would be a baby quilt, but it's too big.
Once it's quilted, it will tell me where it's supposed to live.
In addition to finishing this top, I've added some birds to my flock.
These go together so quickly and are so fun to make.
They are a Block Lotto pattern that is free on line.

I'm not sure how many I'll make, but I will keep adding to 
the flock until I sense that I have enough.
Happy Quilting!

You just keep cranking out the beauties with this fabric!! If it needs a home I know one in MN it could live at, LOL.

Love the sea glass quilt as well as the previous pineapple quilt in the same colorway. And that border: the piece of resistance, just so perfect. You have further impressed me to make a 9 patch quilt. So many beautiful designs created using a simple block. And I hope to use up some of my stash. I have not corresponded with you in such a long time and hope that all is well in your world.

Well, I can tell you one thing — your instant leftover quilt would look fantastic in MY bedroom! I love those blues and greens! And I am smitten with those sweet birdies, too!

Actually, the block lotto birds were based on my bird how to. Since then I have written a tutorial and sell it on Etsy. I have taken down all the earlier posts. You can get the tutorial here: https://www.etsy.com/listing/466148677/lynnes-liberated-birds-tutorial?ref=shop_home_feat_1.
