Blurry Pictures

I don't know what I did to the settings on my camera.  I must have hit something and now I can't figure out how to get it back to normal.  Seems like the story of my life!

Anyway, excuse the blurry pictures.

I had to run an errand today, so I decided to stop by the Quilt Loft, the new quilt shop in Upland/Montclair.  I don't know which city it's in because the town borders are all jumbled up there.  Sheesh, I'm a bundle of confusion these days, and I can't even blame it on drugs!

Anyway ....

I got to visit with a couple of friends there, and I did manage to leave a little bit of money behind.  It's been forever and a day since I've been in a quilt shop.  It was fun looking around the new shop.

This new Creative Grids Pineapple Trim Tool caught my eye.  They had a display with the step-by-step sewing process.

It sure looked easy enough.  I'll give this a whirl when I get the new machine set up in the new table so I can finally sew.  I was thinking driving home that this would look great in the old Robyn Pandolph fabrics -- you know, back when she was with Moda.  I'll probably choose a blue for the centers and then go from there.  Lord knows I have enough RP fabrics to quilt the world!

The cutest little Sandy Gervais pattern, "Peak Color," using her Posh Pumpkins line.  I love her little patterns.  I've made several of them but none are quilted yet.  At least I don't think any are quilted.  Need to definitely get going on remedying that!

And I couldn't resist "All A  Flutter," a Cotton Way pattern by Bonnie Olaveson.  I absolutely adore Bonnie and Camille's patterns. 

I had fun for the hour I was there.  I need to do that more often!!

Ooooh - that looks like oodles of potential! I'm really curious about that pineapple tool. I love the idea of them but haven't figured out how to incorporate one into my decor yet since they're more traditonal than I am, but I probably just haven't met the right fabric. lol. I'll be very eager to see how yours turn out! :-) Have fun!

Looks like fun shopping! I love the Sandy G pattern~ she does have the cutest little patterns. There is a pineapple quilt in my future, just can't quite decide how I want to do it. LOL Have a good weekend!

It's good to see you're back to your old ways! I love the pattern from Bonnie, it's really cute! I've always wanted to make a pineapple quilt but haven't jumped in yet. It's on the long list...definitely not the short one!
