Design Wall Monday


I haven't worked on Pineapple Crazy since retreat in November. I've thought about it but haven't touched it. Wednesday at sewing group, one of the ladies showed her blocks and that's all it took to get me jazzed up to work on mine again.

I pin my blocks into groups of 10 so I did a quick count and was at 86. I made 4 on Wednesday afternoon. Then on Friday, we drove 2 1/2 hours to the beach for lunch so that evening I made the 5 border blocks. Saturday I made 9 more pineapple blocks and got up Sunday morning and finished block #100!  I am deep into Gilmore Girls on Netflix. I discovered that I can make 1 complete block per episode......don't judge.

I wanted to work on more blocks Sunday but I had to show some restraint and clean my sewing room. Instead of just putting things away, I decided to rearrange things and that lead to organizing and that lead to scrap and strip sorting and that lead to no sewing.  With all the scrap sorting, I bet I have enough little scraps for 4 more of these quilts.

I'm hoping that will change this week.  See what others are up to at Patchwork Times.

Ooooh.
Just ooooh.
Love the pineapples and the border really sets 'em off. I think a play on "Gilmore Girls" would make a good name for this quilt....Pineapple Girl?

Gorgeous, gorgeous blocks! I need to sort scraps, too, but it is much more fun to make scraps!

LOL Bonnie has influenced yourNetflicks viewing as well as your Design wall. I can't watch and sew when the Drama is on. Pineapple blocks, scrappy happiness.

You are doing a great job on your Pineapple Girls quilt. Yea, I like Nann's name for it. And I LOVE the borders. How big is this going to get? 100 blocks sounds huge to me but I guess it depends on the size of each block. Nice job so far.
