Lots of Sewing Going On

I have been getting quite a bit of sewing completed although I'm not actually making full quilt tops or runners or anything....really just doing blocks. 

I saw that Terry at "Terry's Treasures" posted that it was time to make our Scrappy Star block so I got mine all made up yesterday.  I'd already made up a lot of star points and center 9 patch blocks so it was really just a matter of assembling the blocks. 

I also took another trip to Delaware to visit Michelle on Tuesday morning and spent some time with her guild ladies making pineapple blocks. These things are addicting!

If you go over to Michelle's blog  you can see her completed Pineapple Quilt....that is surely some gorgeous eye candy!       My blocks are only approximately 8 inch blocks so I'm going to need to make a lot of these guys to assemble a top.    It's one of those projects that I'll keep handy in case I don't know what to work on.     
I am working on some blue and green churn dash blocks today.....  I couldn't decide how big I actually wanted the quilt to be but when I finally got them up on the design wall I decided that I needed 6 more so I whipped them up yesterday and now I'm going to start sewing them into rows today....I'll report back with my progress later or tomorrow.
