2013 NewFO Challenge - April Update

Here are the quilting projects that I started in April. For this challenge, projects don't have to be finished ... just started! You can visit Barbara over at Cat Patches and see what everyone else has been working on this month.

1. I began April by making this Tiny Pineapple. It is a 3" square

Paper pieced Tiny Pineapple
and lives in this frame.
Frame is 7 3/4" square.

2. One of my goals this year is to make a Modern Quilt.  I have started making 64 patch 12" blocks in various colorways. I'm calling the quilt Crazy Eights. I have nine blocks done, all in different colors.
Blue, orange, teal, melon, yellow, pink, green, red, and purple blocks
3. I just read about the To Boston With Love flags and  I made four.

Updates on earlier 2013 projects:

1.The April block of the 5th Anniversary BOM Quilt at Lucky2BQuilting is done. One of these days, I'l begin putting the blocks together. There are three per row and I now have four done.
2. Spring Bouquet is appliquéd! I am stippling this quilt in a small scale and outlining each appliquéd piece. I am quilting this in pieces and it is taking a while! There are 9 interior blocks and 4 border pieces. Here are the top 6 interior blocks, all done!
Applique is outlined and background is small scale stippling.
3. My Buggy Barn table runner is done.

I guess that's it!


  1. Great projects! I absolutely love your pineapple. What a nice housewarming gift idea.

  2. I love your Crazy 8 blocks. Your Pineapple block is gorgeous too!

  3. Such great projects! I couldn't say which I love more :*) But I think the applique quilt would win *wink*

  4. Wonderful projects! I love your tiny pineapple block. Imagine those fabrics in a queen size bed quilt of the same pattern - wonderful!

  5. Can't believe that Pineapple block is 3"! Love the Crazy Eights! The banners are cool, too. Way to go!!
