I finished my pineapple mini and it is gorgeous. When I make a mini from fabrics I used in a quilt I like to back it with same fabric as the quilt. This is made with some of the fabric and the backing from this quilt

One Monthly Goal

Things have been a little busy and I did not post a monthly goal for April. I have to finish this quilt in May. It is my friends birthday on the 8th of May so I am going to be a little late but if it is finished in her birthday month I will be happy.
 So my OMG for May is to quilt and bind this layer cake pop quilt.

New Fabric

The backing fabric has arrived and it is great. Even though the background is cream, the colours are great and I love the design. If I am paying for shipping  I like to order more fabric. I don't have a lot of low volume so I ordered Blueberry Park low volume jelly roll, I bought 2 jolly bars of zen chic so I can make the pattern that comes with the jolly bar and a mini charm pack of modern lustre. I am very happy with my choices!

waiting for backing

All done and looks good. I have ordered a wide back online and hopefully the colours will work. I don't usually like to use white for background as threads show but my friend loves white background fabric in quilts. I have started trimming threads so will be ready to go as soon as the fabric arrives.

Purple Pineapple

Finally sewing. I spent last week in Perth and now I am home and doing some sewing! Even though Psych has finished for ever, I still have a thing for pineapples. I have loved this mini for a while but not a big yellow fan so decided on a purple pineapple. Mix that with Kate Spain and you have a winner

I love the Stars Hollow quilt by Amy at During Quiet time and thought I would make some coffee cups. I simplified the mug as I liked this fabric with only a band. I then chickened out when I looked at the pieces for steam. One day I will try again as I really the like the pattern but I still like it without steam.

March OMG

I have decided on a change of project for my OMG for March. I want to finish this flimsy that is going to be for a friend. It is the layer cake pop pattern from the Fat Quarter Shop. I love the pattern but I don't love this quilt. Hopefully my friend will. She loves Carolyn Friedlander and white so she should. I only have one row to do before so I might even get it basted.
