Pineapple Blossom at Last!

Well...it's about time!
Bonnie Hunter's Pineapple Blossom blocks were the one I chose for my President of New Friends departing gift...I asked the ladies to make at least one block using my favorite color green.
I got an over abundance of wonderful blocks to play around with however they sat in limbo for ummmm 5+ years... sad to say!
I thought this would be the perfect time to get them out of the box and just put them together.  I had to do a bit of squareing up, which took some time but...it's working out just fine.
Thank goodness the quilt Queen Carmen reminded me that I would want to sash them anyway so I could square up (actually down) and even though the corner triangles were different sizes it was going to look great!
Hopefully I will have the whole quilt top together in a couple of days...Christmas should be a kind of quiet one and a perfect time for some sewing.
