I cannot believe that I did not sew one stitch last week....not until Saturday! Had company, then I had strep throat and was on the sofa for the rest of the week. But I did get a little crochet blanket done for Project Linus, and some hand applique...so I feel a tiny bit productive! and I used up scrap yarn!
I'm working on my Island Batik November challenge and I thought I was working on my December challenge when I first started piecing these blocks using the Alpine Jingle fabric Island Batik sent to me.
My pineapple blocks are made with 1 1/2" strips, the center square is 2 1/2" with a 3 1/2" square flipped on the corners. I LOVE using Gyleen Fitzgeralds Pineapple Tool...so easy!
Then I decided to make some wonky improv trees using my left overs. Once I got them made, I did like the idea of making a quilt, but then I thought...what if? And tried the blocks out as a border around the pineapple quilt. I like it! (except now I need an idea for my December challenge)
Hopefully I get this completed this afternoon and start quilting it! What's on your Monday afternoon agenda?
A view of my back yard....we are having the most amazing display of color here in Missouri this year. Hope you are enjoying some beautiful fall weather!
