BOMs, Amy's HGTV quilt, and Show and Tells

Got the July BOMs finished:

An LQS employee was telling me yesterday that she is managing to get two 6" blocks out of the main colorway (block with purple pieces in this photo) kit each month and in addition, is making two more 6" blocks just the same but in closely related colors/prints from her stash. How fun is that? Then the plan is perhaps to put all four together to make larger blocks. Now I wish I were doing that TOO :-).

This was a Show and Tell from yesterday. This gorgeous quilt resulted from Libby's Pineapple class at the LQS, which I also have taken and for which I managed to complete four (count 'em four yukyuk) very lovable bright pineapples (which I posted about long ago) but which are not yet put together/completed. I'll get it done, though, they're right here in the UFO To Do stack.

I had to see if I could create the quilt that Amy described, as shown in an If Walls Could Talk episode. She said the star points aren't right and I haven't heard from her yet (she must be off riding that bicycle on a DC canal path today :-) ) on the drawing below to see if they're like that.


Well, I love this quilt, too. Especially the all-white logs in the log cabin. Wouldn't it be fun to do it in varying white-on-white prints. With a few pale beiges thrown in. Ahhhhhh...

Here are Show and Tells from Jo's Little Women Club last Tuesday night (belle, n'est-pas?):

Dear Karen, I like your quilts. I have been making quilts for years, and like you, I sometimes make aprons. Roz

Wow that pineapple is big - I saw Libby's before I moved - in fact I think she was still quilting it when she showed it to me. Both quilts are great and I'm sure your's will be wonderful too.

Ooooh, some great stuff you have here today! I miss the Jo show and tell and the gals a lot. I wanted to sign up for the Mariner's Compass class, but it was filled. Please keep an eye out for any cancellations for me.

I love that Pineapple, but for some reason I don't like making that block so I guess I'll never own one. And all the rest are beautiful, I LOVE reproductions!
Also love the apron from the last post, how practical is that? My Gran was never without one of those aprons on, the pattern brings back memories.

Karen your blocks look great. You have so much wonderful eye candy for us to look at today. The pineapple quilt looks so beautiful - I am impressed that you've made four of them. They look like a lot of work.
I had a hard time visualizing the quilt that Amy was talking about - and you picked it right up. That is a pretty quilt pattern.

Karen,
I didn't want your post to ever end! Such wonderful pics and I am feeling guilty as ever, thinking of my neglected pile of UFO's and a baby quilt that needs it binding. As always, a daily treat for eyes and spirit. Bless you.

I really like your drawing of the quilt with red stars and white log cabin blocks. Do you intend to make it in real fabric?
