Design Wall Monday

Pineapple Crazy is a completed quilt top.
You can read that story here if you like.
I'm still pretty excited.

Remember last week when I showed you my basked to half square triangles.
My friends on Facebook turned my post into a fun little contest.
These are the start of my newest project Jamestown Landing.
Another quilt by Bonnie Hunter in the String Fling book.

I used lots of them as leader/enders while putting PC together.
Afterwards I didn't have anything close to the machine to sew on,
so I started chaining these together.
Pretty soon the basket was empty.
I pressed and trimmed 10 at a time.
Sunday evening I counted.
254! I was shocked.
My friend Mary guessed 257.
Pretty good guesser, isn't she!!
Now I have to get her prize in the mail.
She's going to like it. *wink, *wink

Plans for this week include cutting more HSTs, pin basting PC, start quilting PC.
No plans to go anywhere or do much away from home.
From where I sit on this early Monday morning, it looks like a good week ahead.

I'll start by visiting friends throughout Blogland!
Check out what's happening around town at Patchwork Times.
