a very satisfying sewing day and pretty good progress this weekend on the quilt for my dad and stepmom.  only 11 days until we leave, though, so I should probably be sandwiching and quilting by tuesday if I’m going to finish this in time for Road Trip 2012. 

Those pineapples are 16” x 32” and really delightful.  I spent some time today wondering if I could revamp the back with only four and keep two of them for myself, but I purposely chose six to represent me, my daughter, my sister, my niece, my dad and my stepmom.

the idea of them has been sitting in my head ever since I saw this on flickr.

  1. Look at all the awesomeness in that room -- the camping stars, the indigo & plum, the pickle-dish-y quilt over the chair and now the pineapples! What an amazing back!!! Will the quilt be a surprise? Surprise or not, their socks will be blown off!
