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?
