Design Wall Monday


Once in a while I get the urge to sew on my Pineapple Crazy blocks. My grand plan was to do at least 5 a month but that hasn't happened.  Since finishing 2 UFO tops last week, I needed something small to work on so I pulled out the Pineapple Crazy bin and got busy. These little buggers take a long time to sew. But I love digging through the crumbs and scraps and have no problem with anything goes. I'm in the mood now, I just might start 5 more.

The 5 blocks complete and de-papered. I also took the other 50 blocks and de-papered them. That in itself is a big job. It took 2 movies to get them finished and boy oh boy did I make a mess. Even though I tried to contain it, it still looked like it snowed all over the floor. This is one of those Why didn't I think of this sooner! moments. So now as the blocks are finished, they will be de-papered.

See lots of fabulous design walls at Patchwork Times--I love Judy L's star blocks!

I love your blocks and would like to try some of my own. And now you have the de-papering figured out it won't be so much of a chore.

I'm with Annie. I made a Pineapple block for my SBS, that was enough for me. Hoping that the LUS doesn't have one, it has others that are PP though. :(

I love the look of the pineapple blocks, but the thought of trying them for myself terrifies me! Yours look AWESOME!!! :)

I love those pineapples! How impressive that you already have 50 completed. I recently made a pineapple pincushion and really want to do a whole quilt.

Love pineapples! That is one downside to paper piecing, removing the paper!

Ramona said...

Your blocks are wonderful! What is the width of each piece? They look miniscule! So striking. One day....

They look fantastic! I can see why you would feel like you have to be "in the mood" to work on them. What a great scrap buster!
