personal meanderings as I quilt, paint, hook and stitch.

I'd like to share my pineapple quilt with you. This January I lost my father. I was blessed to have him be my dad for many of his 91 years. It's still hard to believe that one day we could be playing cards and 2 days later he'd be gone. Dad and Mom raised 5 daughters and 1 son. All his girls sew and Dad took delight in seeing what we were working on. I often would come to visit and he'd pull out a picture he had come across which he thought I might want for my art files. The last quilt blocks I took to show him were these pineapple blocks. He loved the vibrant colours. So Dad this one's for you...Dad's Pineapple.
