Are these Quilters NUTS!!!!!

For today's post I thought I would share a few of the quilts where I thought maybe the quilter's were nuts - or if they weren't they are now!!!!!
This hexagon one was AMAZING! The hexagons couldn't have been any bigger than 2" across. Just look at the colors and design. It was a true work of art!
Then in honor of all you who like Bonnie's Pineapple Blossom. Huh - I thought that looked putzy! These pineapple blocks couldn't have been any bigger than 2" across either! Those pineapples were sooo amazing! I just stared and stared. There is no way I would even attempt one of them!

And how about lover's of red! I think by the time this quilt was done you would be sick of it! But it sure would clean out your stash! Again the blocks were fairly small.
Thats all for tonight. I"m beat. It was another long day at work and then straight to the quilt shop to teach a class. Which is fun, but makes for a long day! Night!

My favorite is the nine-patch quilt but they are all jaw dropping gorgeous.

You came home with some lovely stuff! Looks like you had a wonderful time.

I like seeing where you placed the basket blocks and the star block you were showing us earlier in your quilt. Beautiful!
