Lifesavers Finish!!!!! National Dog Day and!!! Finished ( OR not) Friday!!

My Rainbow Scrap Challenge quilt for 2021 produced Leftovers. 

and you can not Ignore the leftovers... EVER!!

So I got to work and I made Lifesavers with the leftovers:


Lifesavers demanded that I finish it this week!  I found a blue flannel back and decided that it needed to be quilted with the same design that its parent quilt ( Pineapple Blossom) was quilted with:

are you ready????

Gratuitous Sky/trailer shot:


Battling the wind shot..... Note the Flamingos are totally secured!! they won't blow away haha!



Close up of the quilting shot:



And of course the Original Pineapple Blossom quilt - from which Lifesavers began.....



I also heard it was National Dog Day - and Puppy got excited!!!! He said - Lets go get something cool, to which I said, jump in the truck... we have fence to fix little Puppy.... and he jumped in!!! he is a sucker like that!


Alright!!! It is FRIDAY!!! you know what that means right???? you had better had something finished ( or not) to show away!!! Let us see your projects!!!

Who knew Pineapple Blossoms could yield Lifesavers! Oh, such yummy leftovers! What a rainbow of color today!

Jenny K. Lyon said...

Those colors make me smile! What? Leftovers demand to be finished? No one told me, lol!

Elizabeth V Kelbaugh said...

Fabulous Lifesavers quilt. Love all the bright colors. Wish I could use up leftovers as fast. I hope to make progress but sure I'm way far behind in using my leftovers.

Linda said...

Haha I have nothing finished but I love your Lifesavers! Love the colors and the pattern, and the quilting is beautiful.

Oh that happy puppy face would melt any ones heart! I love me a good lying geese quilt so I love Lifesavers.

Deb said...

Love those rainbow projects, and your lifesavers flamingos!! And the adventure of picture taking is always a delight. Happy Puppy Day. My morning walk is basically, dog therapy to check out all the neighborhood canines!
Have a great sewing week!

LOL, well I have little finishes, but yes ma'am I am linking my finishes, I can't resist that adorable face! Love the bright colors in your quilt, so vibrant.

Mari said...

What a beautiful, happy quilt! I love the colors, and the picture with the trailer and the sky is perfect!

Frédérique said...

I love both quilts, and the pineapple quilting design is very beautiful! Well done!

Snowcatcher said...

Both of those are so happy, cheerful, joyous, exhilarating and energizing!!! I definitely want to make my own pineapple quilt one day, when I finish a few more WIPs. The quilting is just awesome!

Yvonne from Quilting Jetgirl said...

I love that both quilts are quilted with the same motif. What a fun and fantastic finish!

Rebecca Grace said...

Oh, dear -- I was not aware of the rule that "you can't ignore the leftovers ever" and I'm afraid I have NOT been in compliance! By the time I get a quilt finished I have had ENOUGH of those fabrics and I have to shove the scraps away in a drawer where I don't have to look at them anymore! :-). Your Lifesavers and Pineapple quilts are both beautiful. Congrats on the double finish!

Michelle said...

Lifesavers is a gorgeous quilt!

Carla said...

Rainbow is the best and both of these quilts are gorgeous. Your quilting really makes them sing. I love when two beauties come from one.

Lifesavers is fun and vibrant. You photos always are so pretty, Alycia. I love seeing the ranch in the background.

Andree G. Faubert said...

Hi Alycia, what a great left-over quilt! Love the pineapple quilting design! Have a great weekend.

Lifesavers! What an awesome name for this bright colorful quilt!

Sandra Walker said...

Both quilts are absolutely fabulous Alycia! Just so darn happy and bright. I love that you used the cutoffs immediately and that they were a DrEAMi--Drop Everything And Make it! A true one because you did it from start to finished quilt, yay! I hope you'll link this up tomorrow on my blog where we celebrate these unplanned 'squirrel' projects!

Celine said...

Wow your quilt is beautiful, well done!

Sylvia@Treadlestitches said...

Wow! What a great quilt! There should be an award for "Best Use of Leftover Quilt Fabric". Your fabulous quilting takes it over the top!
