If you are a fan of Quilt in a Day on Facebook, then you know about Eleanor Burns' sampler qal. The block patterns are from The Kansas City Star newspaper that published quilt patterns in the early to mid 20th century. I've joined in because the part about quilt making that I like quite a bit is the history and tradition behind it. Anyway I submitted the block for October. It's called Pineapple. I had some problems finding fabric in my stash that progressed in value.
