My pineapple blocks are one of those projects that have been on my list for a couple of years.  So I took Mary and Sarah’s advice and decided to motivate myself with a reward if I can move them along to a finish.    The first step was to take the blocks out of the ziplock bag they have been living in and place them on my design wall.  I then took my scrap bind and cut me some sashing pieces.  I also found a black piece in the bin to cut as corner post between the sashing.  Then I started sewing the rows together.  I know there are better ways to put rows together.  But somehow I always mess up those methods and I end up with something other than what I planned.  So the best method for me to ensure it goes together the way I planned is to take it off the design wall one block at a time.

As  you can see I have three rows done now and I’ve started the forth.  Hoping for some sewing time today between SEOP conference with N and DD’s opening night for her play.  And my reward you ask.  I’m going to go away with a few friends this weekend to sew.  Well, worth the effort of getting this quilt done.  Don’t you think?

    A getaway is definitely a motivator/reward to finish your project. It's wonderful. I imagine it'll be very satisfying to see it finished too.

    Definitely a great reward!!! I think the pineapples look awesome!! It is one of my favorite quilt patterns and the scrappiness is glorious.

  • Karen says:

    You are going to be so excited when the top is pieced – keep going!!

  • Lynn says:

    Wow, this is going to be great when it's finished. Think how good you'll feel – that's a great motivator. My motivation is usually guilt at having another ufo.

    Great reward! Love the blocks coming together. It was nice learn how you piece the rows. At my sewing group they are very fast with some sort of method I don't quite understand. I'm like you. One at a time. Slow and steady.
