WIP Wednesday 5.3.12

Here's what happened this week in my quilty world:

I'm still machine quilting on my HUGE Pineapple Blossom quilt.  I won these squares in the Block Lotto in May of 2011.  It was my UFO Challenge for February.  It's getting closer and closer to being done.  Hopefully by next week I'll have a finished quilt to show...

Completed Block #29 - Apple Core - for the We Can Do It Skill Builder Sampler
Here's the block that I made for my April partner, Helen from England, for the Block Swap Adventure.
This block makes me happy! Nothing but blue skies in the background too.
It is called the Ribbon Star block. Lee at Freshly Pieced did a great tutorial here:

I'm excited to have to sew a button on to my May for Me BINGO card.  Nothing yet... 

Here are the four May for Me Host Blogs:

Tonya at Hillbilly Handiworks (check here for the rules).
Sharon at Vrooman's Quilts (check here for the how-to).

I can't wait to see what my swap partner, Terrie, does with the UGLY two yards of fabric I am sending her.  It's in the mail today.  This is for the In The Bag Challenge.
