Damn. I was totally scheming to try and get you to make a pineapple quilt for me. Then I read how it's not worth it for you to make quilts for cash. Damn.

oh those pineapple blocks are just eyestrainers!!! Yours is double yummy------ Can't wait to see the whole thing.


Wow Jen! That is going to be a smashing quilt! I would never have the patience to do that!
Been a long time since we have kept in touch. Can't believe how much your family has grown! Wow....time flies doesn't it. Hunter starts college in 3 weeks.
Miss you

Wow! That looks way too complicated for me. I like quick projects. Your mom made that beautiful quilt!?? It is amazing!! What a work of love.

If I didn't love you so much, I would totally hate you. Wow, do you have talents, girl!!

I am so envious of that fabulous block!! Whoop! Whoop! Whoop!!

Sorry to hear about the hard drive... but I LOVE that pineapple block! That was one of my first blocks ever when I was about 8 years old. I entered it in the STATE fair and won! (it was a pillow, not a quilt! LOL!) So I have a soft spot in my heart for those... and it will be worth every hour you put into it!
p.s. your grandkids are just getting cuter... I'm talking about the 4th pic. That lil boy steels my heart.

Hey I mean "sweet" .... I still have vacation brain :-)!!!

Yummy quilt block. Love those colors and what a weet quilt! Pineapple blocks are one of my very favs!!

it looks time consuming! pretty.

your mom's quilt is absolutely breathtaking.

Hi Jen. I figured, since you popped into my blog, I'd pop on over to yours. :) That pineapple block is incredible! WOWWEE! I love doing new blocks. Last summer I did a snail trail quilt for the first time and I LOVED it. Doing it and how it turned out. I can't wait to see what you do with that little pineapple! :)

Ooh, the colors in that quilt square make me swoon!!! And that precious quilt your mom made? Jen, your family is so blessed to be wrapped in such delicious quilts made with so much love! xo-Mel

WOW! That is beautiful work! Love it!

Your quilt block is lovely Jen, just like my cupcake package that arrived today! Thank you so much Jen. I've posted some pics and I love every single thing. Now, I'm off to work on your gift! x Rachel

Good job on the blocks. I like them!! And the cute little quilt.

Wow! I think I would just have to frame the one block. It's amazing but I would never in a million years have the patience to quilt:) You are so talented!!! Good luck to you Jen!

Amazingly detailed block Jen, no wonder it takes so long!! Your mother is a wonderful quilter, and the apple didn't fall far from the tree, KWIM?? :)

Whoohooo! Love it! Who doesn't enjoy seeing their name and being a winner. Thanks Jen!!!! I'm smiling and beaming. Thank you thank you! Yipeee.

I love the pineapple block. I've never ever made a pineapple quilt. Some of them I just don't like. I LOVE the way you colored yours in the corners and made it scrappy. The colors make me happy that way. Its darling. And I love the dot neutral fabric. It makes me want to stop what I'm doing right now and go make this. I can't wait to see more.

The other quilt is very sweet too. The sad thing is when people ask to have you make a quilt for them and then when you give them a price (well under what it is worth - let me tell you!) and the act like you are a nut ball with anything over $50 bucks. They don't get it. And this one is super darling.

Thanks Jen!!!

Wow! I struggle for 3 minutes, much less 3 hours, and my quilting shows as does yours! Great job! I cannot wait to see this quilt.

That block is drool worthy! I love your fabs and colors! The quilt is beautiful too. Mmmm. Yummmmy! I made a "Pineapple Swirl" quilt from one of Darlene Zimmernam's books. I couldn't believe how long it took me to piece the blocks, and not nearly as big as your block. Anyhoo... I made that quilt top a few years ago, and I'm STILL quilting it! I tip my hat to you, Jen.

I agree about the costs of selling quilts - and much better to give them to someone you love!

Good luck with your computer. Love the quilt and really love the pineapple block. So pretty even if they are time consuming.
