In Search of Color.....autumn equinox style

The quilt that I am currently working on and trying to get finished up...for DD#1..my September child.
Pineapple Passion, October Style...finished in 1991. Machine pieced, hand quilted
The detail of the hand quilting...the kind I can't see to do anymore.
Fun new stuff, a "work in progress", taking the orphan approach. Tonya at Lazygal Quilting(see sidebar) mentioned I have been trying my hand at her 'spiders'....this one is the first...he's pretty lame(more ways than one...LOL). Go find yourself some color today!!! I have grandsons coming *VBS* See you tomorrow!

Rats! I want to see your spider, but all I can see is a box with a red x. Not very halloween like!

I love the pineapple quilt. Been wanting to do one for ages and the autumn colours are beautiful. Log cabin is one of my favourite blocks so that one gets my vote too. You are always so busy !

I always enjoy reading your reflections of days gone by. How nice to have a visit from the young'uns.

Love that pineapple quilt especially since fall colors are my all time favorite. Eby on the Fall quilt would make a purrfect calendar page.

Trick or treat looks fun. I love the "joseph's coat of many colors" fabric you are using in there. I have yet to make a halloween quilt but I see so many around that I am tempted....

I can see you are having fun with the horror halloween theme.

My favorite is the pineapple quilt, but the Halloween letters, etc are looking pretty good, too.
