How did I do?

It's the end of the month and time to assess how I did on my One Monthly Goal (OMG). To recap:

  • Finish assembly of yellow/gray pineapple top, make back, take to LAQ, name and label.
Yellow/gray exploding pineapple -- needs a name
Well, I finished the top, sort of ...

Un-named Pineapple Finished, sort of, still un-named
I am not happy with the corner blocks in the border. I didn't get a photo but they are a simple square in a square -- very large and klunky compared to the pineapple blocks. I have enough fabric to make some more pineapple blocks for the corners and I think that would make me happier. So it could be called a finish, but ....

The second hiccup is that adding the wide borders caused me to run short of what I planned to use for the back. I will be stopping at Whittle's next month on my way to a retreat so I can take care of the back situation and also replace the corners at the retreat.

The bottom line for OMG: it definitely helped me to have one finite goal for the month and I will not beat myself up for not reaching the total goal.

I will be reporting in with Heidi at Red Letter Quilts. Pop in and see how other quilters did with their One Monthly Goals.


  1. This is one of my favorite quilts that you've made. Gorgeous!

  2. Awesome borader fabric! Take the time to make it the way you like it. Looking forward to seeing this one in a final photo shoot - maybe next month!

  3. Sometimes things just don't come together the way we envision. It's a gorgeous quilt. Maybe you didn't reach the goal you planned, but you did figure out where you need to go to get done this month.

  4. Pineapple Inside-Out Cake? (I actually made one of those once. The pineapple upside-down cake didn't survive the flipping onto the plate. It looked like it exploded...)
