close up of the leaves. I decided not to blanket stitch them--it just seemed odd, so I free motioned on them on the block to nail down the appliques. This will probably never be washed, so I really don't have to worry about the edges fraying. Happy Quilting!

no stash report this week--I did use a lot, but forgot to add it up and now I'm out of town, (thanks to blogger, I can post in the future!), so will do that next week.
I am working on some new classes and always thinking how I can use my stash to get it done and make something that's been on my list and kill two birds with one stone type of thing. I have a rather large collection of batiks and have made a few quilts with them, so when I came across this pattern in Hawaii, I thought it would be great to use UP my batiks! HA! Didn't even put a DENT in them. I'm still working on it and it has a zig zag border, using HST's and then a plain border and then a piano key border. I'm almost done cutting and am so disappointed I didn't see that pile go down much. I did a blanket stitch around the pineapple with a variagated thread, but I decided not to do the leaves.
