I spent last week finishing up two Moda Bake Shop projects. You can see one of them here (There’s a giveaway there too!). The other project won’t be published until sometime in October. I started my Quilt Square Quilt Along block for next month but I completely screwed it up and have to do a lot of ripping out. UGH!
When I sew with my Bernina, I have to move the needle position over to make a quarter inch seam allowance. Well I had been sewing pineapple crazy blocks and hadn’t moved the needle over when I started sewing my block….let just say….the seam ripper and I are going to become friends.
I did finish this month’s block…..Here it is.
I wish I had picked more contrasting fabric…lesson learned. Send you block in anytime….here’s my email. firstname.lastname@example.org.
I managed to sew 12 Pineapple Crazy blocks this week. That brings my total to 61 blocks. That means I am just over 1/4 of the way done with the blocks for the center of the quilt.
This is a slow project. To be honest, I am surprised I haven’t set it aside yet….I keep telling myself, slow and steady…slow and steady.
There is a quilt book giveaway on my site going on here….
To see what others are working on, head on over to Patchwork Times.

I like the subtle contrast in your block. Congrats on the pineapple blocks! You’ll have that quilt done before you know it!
Love seeing those pineapple blocks! That’s going to be a beauty.
Slow and steady is amazing! I am feeling the same way about Hawaii Sunset at the moment, but it will be worth it in the end. Love your blocks. They are worth all the time they take.
I hate it when I forget to move the needle over! Which quarter inch foot do you use? I’ve been using the #57 with the guide and I need to move my needle one position to the right. So far, it seems to work quite well for me.
Slow and steady is working for you…61 blocks is pretty darn good! They look great! I’m happy with my 15 done. I know what you mean about moving the needle! I keep wondering if I will ever remember! Probably not. :)
I get stalled out a few times when I have a large mount of sewing and cutting to do on one quilt. You’re getting there though! Just keep at it!
I love your pineapple blocks. Keep going, yes slow and steady. You will be so happy to see it to the end. Have you been for a ride in the new combine yet?
