In September, I posted about the welcoming pineapple as the monthly color prompt for the Monthly Color Challenge from “Patterns by Jen” …..
And, as much as I enjoyed the sweet pineapple in my studio, it was followed by the grapefruit for the month of October….that’s right….I am running behind!!!
Now I am NOT a fan of grapefruit…..
….even the sweet Red variety that I pick out to use as inspiration.
I will admit that the citrus aroma did do a great job of freshening my studio and I loved the colors of the pulp…..
The fabrics pretty much chose themselves…..
…and within a few minutes, the pieces were cut and ready to sew…..
Very quickly the block was finished….
…and ready for some fun photography……
Now that I am caught up, this month is BLUEBERRIES…..one of my favorites!!!! Check back later this week for more!!
PATTERN UPDATE…Have you checked out my pattern for “Crumbs for the Geese”. To purchase, simply click on the “Patterns for Sale” tab at the top of this page.

I love how the block turned out!
We have a grapefruit tree, and I love grapefruit. Ours are supposed to be ruby red, but they rarely get that dark. I love them best when they just turn pink.
I never acquired the taste. I keep licking my fingers as I played with the photography and would shudder every time!!! I do the block though!!!
Luv pink and yellow and grapefruit!
I loved quilting it, but definitely NOT eating it!!
