I got a some sewing done on Saturday and squeezed in a bit throughout last week.
I made some progress on my Pineapple paper pieced blocks.
I am loving the piecing though. I know for sure that more paper piecing projects are in my future. I am so thankful for the bright scraps that have been gifted to me. Right now the gifted bag of goodies that is truly coming in handy came from Ila’s friend….
In the bag of crumbs were these awesome little purple triangles. I am guessing they are leftovers triangles from making flying geese. They are working wonderfully and I love having them. I had very little purple scraps in my mix so these have been perfect!! THANKS so much for sending these little gems my way. I am happily sewing them into these Pineapple Crazy blocks.
I have always loved the saying, “One man’s junk is another man’s treasure”. I’ll take on “junk” like these little scraps anytime because they truly are a treasure to me!!
I worked alternately trying to piece on my Scrappy Mountain Majesties quilt in between Pineapple Crazy blocks. Actually I forced myself to work on this because I wanted to be sewing the Pineapple blocks!!
The plans for this are to go to for a graduation present. I am way ahead of schedule on this one but want to keep trucking along on it to at least get it all together as a top. It’s made with shirts. Currently I am not real excited about it. I am thinking a red inner border and blue outer border might jazz it up because right now it’s a bit blah. I am open to suggestions and comments. In fact please send along some suggestions to make it more appealing.
