Progress on the Christmas quilt

Here is the progress I have made on the Pineapple Christmas quilt.

As you can see, there are 18 blocks completed with 7 more to do.  This kit called for paper piecing 9″ blocks, but I decided to machine piece 10″ blocks.  I was hoping that the fabric that was saved from not paper piecing would be enough to make a larger block, but it didn’t work out that way.  I need about 5″ of the red and green stripe to finish the blocks.

This line of fabric is current and still in the stores, so I was able to order what I needed.  But this project will go on hold until the stripe fabric arrives.

In the mean time, I think that I will pull out my Bonnie Hunter 2010 mystery quilt – Roll, Roll, Cotton Boll – and start putting the center together.  It would be great to get this top done before she starts the 2012 mystery.
