After fixing Friday's whoopsie with the too short backing, Pineapple Blossom #1 is almost finished. The binding is stitched down except about 3/4 of the long side. I think it will be finished today. (With the help of a couple of shows on HGTV, it is now finished.)
So last night I decided to pull out these Pineapple Blossom blocks that I won last spring at retreat. These are 12" blocks where the other quilt is made from 9" blocks. I need to make 7 more blocks and I want to make a piano key border. I think I have enough bright strips to make this work the way I want it to. I have to decide whether or not to sash these blocks but I don't have to decide that until later........I'll think about that as I sew the blocks.
Pineapple Blossom is a free quilt design at Quiltville. Bonnie gives cutting instructions for using both 2" and 2 1/2" strips. Its a fabulous design to use to clean out your strip bins.
