Pineapples, Christmas and Flowers

In January at the Road 2 California quilt show I took Anita Grossman Solomon's two color pineapple quilt.  My friend Janice took the class too and didn't want to start a new quilts so she made a couple of these blocks in the class.  So thanks Janice.  I finally finished it!  Yea!  I love it.  It can either be a Halloween quilt or if you are a San Francisco Giant's fan, it could be a quilt for you.

I also made this doozy of a bag.  It gave me fits and I would not have been able to do it if I wasn't with Anna.  She has made enough bags to figure out what the directions meant.  There are a …
