A couple of blogland friends asked how to make a pineapple block.
(I googled pineapple quilt.)
There are multiple tutorials on how to make this block correctly.
This is not one of them.
My pineapple is very haphazard.
A wee bit wonky.
Not too much.
Maybe it should be more than it is....
Just so you KNOW it's supposed to be a bit OFF!!
I began with a 9" piece of paper/foundation.
I pinned a 2" red square there in the middle...
after folding it quickly to approximate the middle!
I then decided I should probably draw some lines to give
me some AIM as I eyeball placing the strips.
I overlapped the yellow strips a bit.
covered the corners with green.
Using strips ranging in size from
1" to 1 1/2" wide.
And LOOK at THIS!!
I won some fabric that just came in the mail this week.
It's perfect for this project.
Isn't it fun when THAT HAPPENS???
Ooooh! How pretty.
When I made it out to the corners I added some
TRIANGLES with this wonderful
Vintage sheet fabric
that I hope doesn't RUN OUT
Before I'm done with this quilt!!!
I won't find any of THAT at the quilt shop!
Trim to 9"x9"
Begin thinking of spring!!!!!
I guess this will be a quilt after all.....
I HAD thought about stopping and turning these blocks
into a table runner....
I don't think I'll be able to stop now!!!!
These little guys just make me too HAPPY!!!
