Another wedding quilt

Another cousin's daughter getting married. This one is in
September and I figure the shower will be in July or
August. I am certainly starting way ahead of time--for me,
at least--(unlike the last one I made). I cut this out this past
weekend (while I was sick) and it is going to be Bonnie
Hunter's Pineapple Blossom. (with no sashings and a piano
key border). I will be piecing it at retreat (3 more days!!!)
but I couldn't wait to see what the greens looked like so
I made one block.

I had asked Jill-the bride's sister about colors and she said
Jill likes green. Lime green?? Olive green?? Forest green??
Grass green?? Sea foam green?? Who knows. So I will
make a scrappy green quilt. I figure that is safer than
choosing a green that might not match her decor at all.
Any excuse to make a scrappy quilt huh!

I went to my LQS Super Bowl Sunday sale and bought 20
green FQs. I do have lots of green in my stash but I
figured the FQs would all be the same size and faster to cut.
I did get beige background from my stash. I also bought the
backing because if you finished a bolt you got it for 30% off.
Who can resist that? I'll show that when I show you the
finished top. (Hopefully next week!)

Until next time...

I know you said you bought green at LQS, but I didn't realize you were actually going to use them. Can't wait to see the finished quilt.

That is going to be beautiful. I printed out the pattern and just might have to make one in blues.
