I know I don’t need one more thing to do. I don’t. But I absolutely couldn’t resist adding this particular project to my WIP list. Here is a snapshot of what I’m talking about:
Please excuse the crappy picture – it was taken with my phone in the shop with bad lighting. But it gives you an idea of why I had to stop everything and work on these blocks.
This quilt is a class being held at our LQS. I immediately signed up for this one, even though I’m usually a teacher and not a student. I have to say, it was fun to be the student! 🙂
I have wanted to make pineapple blocks for a long time, and am envious of all the gorgeous blocks I see on the internet. Rebecca of Cheeky Cognoscenti is making a beautiful version of the pineapple block. I always love to see her progress.
The first session of the class lasted four hours. Here is my progress so far:
FOUR hours people! Actually, it was really more like 3-1/2 because there’s instruction in the beginning, and class got started a few minutes late but still – not even a complete block! I have to add the corners and then it will be done.
I know I can make these blocks faster once I have things set up my way in my own sewing room. It’s a bit discombobulating (is that a word??) to sew in another place. I kept losing my scissors which is just silly as they were always right there beside me.
This is definitely a long term project. I’ll keep you updated!
Before I took time off for the pineapple class, I was working on the card trick quilt. I am making good progress. Here are some of the blocks on my wall:
As you can see, I decided to add the sashing after design discussion with hubby. I’m glad we’re using this blue. It’s a Quilter’s Linen, and I just *love* it. Since this picture was taken I’ve gotten all the columns sewn together with all the sashings. I will be adding two borders and then this one will be a finished flimsy. I am loving the colors.
So that is what I have going on in my world. Now it’s time for you to share your projects on Main Crush Monday. What has you excited to be in your sewing space? You can share your projects – here’s how:
