I was still working … I had just moved into a new position at the University. My previous position had been eliminated … I remember my supervisor expressing her regret at having to “let me go” while I was trying my best to hold back my joy. I was so glad to be able to return back to the main campus.

When DH asked me when I was going to make a quilt using the skills I learned at my paper-piecing class, my immediate response was once I got done with the quilts for our granddaughters … but I got to thinking that I’d really like to get started on something sooner. I was reminded of the quilt from tiny little pineapple blocks that my bloggy friend Teresa made last month, and I got to thinking … how long could a small block take? And if I made one block a week, I could have a small wall quilt in a couple of months … and it wouldn’t interfere with my hand quilting projects. I dug through my boxes of fabrics and found some already-cut strips of blue and white (my favorite!) and voila! A tiny pineapple block … 3 1/2” (it’ll finish at 3”).
I’ve got other blues that I’ll use in the other blocks to give the quilt a bit of a scrappy flavor.
Spring is still waiting to make its appearance here … our temperatures will stay in the upper 30’s/lower 40’s – with snow in the forecast for Sunday! Now, you all know I love, love, love snow … but NOT in March! I’m ready for warmer weather … I’m tired of wearing multiple layers of clothing (jeans, a long-sleeved t-shirt with 2 sweatshirts over it, 2 pairs of socks) and still being cold.
