Pineapple Mini Quilt-Quilted

I stayed up late a few nights to get the mini quilt sewn, sandwiched and quilted. It was one of the most fun projects I've done in a long time. I was so excited to use my new bernina feet-quarter inch and free motion. Since we were heading to Kyle's family's house for Memorial Day, I wanted to have a car project and binding seemed like it would be a good go to. I worked tirelessly till 11pm to get it to a point I was pleased with. It's so cute!! I'm very motivated to make a bigger version!! 

Can't wait to show you the finished project!!

Pineapple Mini Quilt-Prepping

I've cleaned out my Instagram and no longer follow empty celebrity life gossip and filled it full of fabric, color and quilts! I saw a picture of a pineapple block and thought I would give that a try. Since making a big quilt is just too much to handle right now (plus I have two others going...) I am making a mini quilt. It will be just one pineapple block with a cute backing and binding. I'll be able to practice my free motion quilting in my machine, too! 
Tonight, after Wade fell asleep, I cut my pieces to the quilt. Cannot wait to sew my mini charms together!! 🍍🍍🍍🍍

Black Hills

We planned a trip out to Rochford to enjoy the spring weather. Fortunately, we threaded the trip in between some rainy days and we had some relatively nice weather! It was definitely worth it for riding bikes and enjoying the black hills green scenery. Wade enjoyed getting trailered around and toted around by his BaPa. 

My mom and I also got to celebrate Mother's Day together on Sunday. She does so much for me and the rest of my siblings and their spouses that we can never repay her for except for to tell her we love her! 

It was a great vacation together and we finished it off with a trip to Wall Drug of course!
