Design Wall Monday

I have a box of red white and blue odds
and ends blocks and decided to get them
out and see what I had.I guess they are like orphan blocks.....except that they
didn't have a destination in the first place. I starting making these earlier this year and
plan to make more R/W/B blocks until I
have enough of ones I like to put together
a quilt top.
This Pineapple Block was one of my first paper pieced attempts. I would really like to pull it from the others and make a whole quilt out of these. Not sure if that will happen......if it does it will take me quite a while to accomplish. This heart was also paper pieced and now I need to get it appliqued to a white background and square it up.


  1. Those are so pretty. Can't wait to see the quilt all made up!

  2. They look like an incredible quilt in the making!

  3. Wow, these blocks have a lot of pizazz! :)

  4. Those are all so fun and happy in the colors. The pineapple block is super.

  5. This looks like a professional did it! You should sell your stuff! Really. There are so beautiful. I think the red, white, and blue would probably sell really well now with the victory of November 10th!

    Do you find quilting calming or relaxing? It seems like it would be such hard work.

  6. I've never done much paper piecing, but maybe I should start! Love the heart and the pineapple~!
