Western Motif

A friend was cleaning out her sewing room and she had a Judy Neimeyer pattern that was hollering my name. I still like the southwestern look ( yes, I know, I need to get into the 21st century ) and I had some fabric that I thought would work great. And besides, I got to use up some stash!

This is the pattern cover,, pretty easy, huh! The directions and the method that Ms. Niemeyer uses in all her patterns makes life so easy when paper piecing - I just love her stuff~

Now this is what mine is starting to look like. My friend had two patterns ( they include the patterns already printed on paper ) cause I guess she was going to make a double size.... so I did too! Might as well use up what you have, right?

You don't see as much variation as you do in the pattern cover,, some but not much. I also need to punch it up,, that will happen in the border I guess..Needs more of the orange!
So far, I'm ok with it,, maybe I should have used batiks!?!
Well, let's see how this ends up.

Well, there's nothing wrong about being southwestereeeee! As for your pineapple blocks, I'm thinking maybe add a color that reads dark dark brown almost black. But I have to say, I love the look of the blocks as is....I'm just sayin'
