Jody challenged us to create a pineapple block. It was a challenge for me (even with Jody's step-by-step instructions), but i finally got the hang of it. Fun deciding on the colors.

April Block Lotto

Scrap Buster Block that Really Busts Scraps

- Use only rectangles (includes squares) ... not wonky ... 2.5" to 6.5"
- Use a good amount of prints with a light background
- Use a limited amount of dark prints as it will make the block look too heavy
- Use a wide variety of prints including, spots, stripes, plaids, text
- Small amounts of solids are ok
- In general, avoid black and bold black and white prints
- Do not recommend a block chock full of brights
- Finished block size is 14.5"

The Quilt & Sewing Fest Of New Jersey 2017

This weekend, 2-5 March, is the annual Mancuso Quilt & Sewing Fest of New Jersey in Somerset
and our NYC Metro Modern Quilters Guild is proud, for the first time, to be a special exhibit at the show.

Yesterday, Cynthia, Caroline and I headed over to the Garden State Exhibit Center to hang our Guild quilts and set up the exhibit, and I took lots of pics to share with you.
