71 - I need 72!

Well, I measured the quilt on my bed (finished size) and it's 85 X 98. I like the length & I like the width.

Well.........I started these blocks in July. ? Maybe it was June - I'll have to look back on my blog log & see - doesn't really matter - but with the measurements that I want this Pineapple Patch Quilt to be....I need 72 blocks.

I only have 71. I have 12 red, 12 yellow, 12 blue, 12 green, 12 purple. but only 11 pink. So I need to go downstairs into my studio & see if I can find a pink 30's FQ (only need a fat 8th) and make ONE more block.

These are all trimmed up & ready for the sashing strips.

I am SO excited about getting THIS far! I was trying to make a big push so that I could work on THE baby quilt. Of which I have made zero progress this past couple of weeks.....

Later this evening I need to do 4 things. #1 Make the last Pink block for my Pineapple Patch Quilt #2 Put away all the laundry in the purple room. #3 Move all the furniture fromt he purple room into the yellow room. #4 Pack up all my stuff for guild tomorrow. (gonne get off work early for this!!! yay!)

#2 is neccessary to complete #3. We have lived here for 15 months - I have not painted the FIRST room, nor have I even hung up ONE picture. Nothing. So I am going to paint the purple room. It's a guest room & not used much (and it's closest to the laundry area - hence the laundry - I HATE laundry - always have & always will ) Prince Charming will help me move the furniture into the OTHER guest room. then , after work evryday this week (excluding tomorrow) I am going to fill holes, and paint primer & then PAINT. I am painting both guest rooms a mellow yellow. It's a Benjamin Moore Paint called "Moonlight" in an egg-shell finish. I had this color in my kitchen & in one of my guest rooms in my house in Alabama. I really liked it.

All the rooms in this house are painted in a flat finish paint. Bathrooms & the kitchen too. I am on a mission to change this....

I bought a pattern yesterday. You're NEVER going to guess what kind of pattern. I am tickled over it & likely won't use it for years. Maybe 2...maybe less...I doubt it. Can you guess? It's a pattern for my pending grandchild....are you any closer to thinking what it might be?

Go to Ladder Hill Designs. I bought that pattern.

Gotta go - the laundry calls...if'n I want to meet all my goals this evening!

Nice looking blocks. I'm sure number 72 will be completed in no time, Ithink it should be a different shade of pink since it is being a difficult block to find..

Ipicked a pink with Stars on it. It was the first pink I grabbed out of the 30's bin. Didn't feel like digging too much. If i put TOO much thought into it, I can't ever decide which one I want....

Purple room? Oh my gosh, I would have had that room repainted almost before I set down my purse on moving day. Not sure how you stood it for 15 months.
