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.

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

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.
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.
Linking to One Monthly Goal at Elm Street Quilts.

Friedlander so I thought the outhouse quilt made with Carolyn Friedlander fabric would be perfect. Here are the first six houses. They are paper pieced and look great but they take me an exceptionally long time to do!
I am going to make the layer cake pop pattern as well as I want to give her a lap quilt too. I briefly considered a lap quilt with the outhouse pattern and then I realised I am far too slow to even consider this.

Fat Quarter Shops, layer cake pop. I love how they look when you put them together. I pulled the fabric for this from a layer cake of Kate Spains Latitude. This was a test to see if I should make one for a friend from some Carloyn Friedlander fabric. I think it will look great. I just need to buy some silver background fabric to start the new quilt.
