ringo pie: quilt on a line

Just finished up my Ringo Pie block for Corey of Little Miss Shabby.  Check out her amazing pillow she just made, makes me want to make pillows!  Corey’s theme was quilts on a line, so I tried to think of something different.  I drew so many sketches for this block, somehow each one was way too complicated, I’m a simple kind of gal.  So of course laying in bed one night after being extremely frustrated, I thought of what I wanted, a quilt at night.

If you’re like me at all, I’m pretty crappy at remembering things, so sometimes when I hang stuff out to dry it ends up there overnight.  Probably not a good thing, but at least they dry the next day, right?

I think the contrast from the dark sky is so pretty with the bright happy quilt.  And I couldn’t resist adding Mr. Moon and a twinkly little star.

You can see my previous ringo pie blocks: herehere,herehere, and herehere, and here.

Hope you have a great weekend!

    Very original, I definitely leave my stuff out overnight! The little clothes pegs detail is so mighty fine!

    I agree…completely adorable. I like that there’s a quilt hanging on a line in a quilt block. Just too cute.

    I have left our clothes on the line overnight…but that was the same time I figured out our sprinklers come on around 2 am. We rent a town home so we can’t control when the sprinklers are set either. It was so sad to find sopping wet clothes the next morning. :(

    what a great block idea. my laundry ends up on the line overnight all of the time. what a pretty quilt on your line, too :)

    I love this Anna!–It’s so perfect–especially at night!! I have laundry issues of my own–sometimes it ends up staying in the washer longer than I intended. =)
