WIP Wednesday 5.9.12

This week I finished my Block Lotto Pineapple Blossom quilt!  It's 82" x 92".  Here's the front:

Here's the very pieced back (it's growing on me):

Here's the label (but I covered my last name just because...)

I did two simple 9-patches for my local quilt guild.  Every few months there is a theme.  The winner of the previous blocks passes out fabric and tells you what the theme is.  For each block that you make you get an entry into the drawing.  This time the previous winner passed out 4.5" strips of the dot fabric and told us to make a 9-patch using pastels.  Here's my two blocks:

Our quilt show is coming up.  If you're in Ohio, here's the info:  2012_SCRAPS_OF_WIT_&_WISDOM

Speaking of quilt shows, Shiela asked me to spread the word:
The Beaver Valley Piecemakers is a 100 member guild north of Pittsburgh, PA Our 18th Annual Quilt Show is Oct 12th, 13th, and 14th. Our judge is a National Quilt Association judge. Here is the link to all the show's information.

Next week is packed with appointments.  Pre-school ends 5/30.  I don't see a whole lot of quilting in my future.  I need to be choosy of what gets done at this point.
