Design Wall Monday


Look at me recycling an old photo of my Pineapple Crazy blocks.  I'm too lazy to go take a picture of the newest blocks and I love how it looks with them layed out. It inspires me to sew like a mad woman.

Sadly these have been put on hold while I work on the elk quilt for the hunting club. Sort of on hold, I ran out of papers and coincidentally out of printer ink. So new ink has been bought and installed and as I write this post, blocks are being printed. I'm hoping to stay focused on the elk quilt and not call squirrel on itty bitty pieces of fabric.

After some household chores this morning, the tables will be set up and the basting of the elk quilt will begin.  Maybe the quilting will start today too.  What I really want to work on though are these Pineapple Crazy blocks.

I have a list of goals for my sewing this week.

  • baste, quilt and bind the elk quilt 
  • I think I need to buy some brown thread for the binding-I'd better check on that
  • finish the wallet I'm working on
  • make a few more Pineapple Crazy blocks

That's probably enough for this week.  First I am going to see what others are working on at Patchwork Times and drink another cup of coffee.

Pineapple blocks are tempting you. Stick to it with the Elk quilt and you'll be able to play with them soon!

I love the pineapple blocks.
I will have to look back over some older posts to learn about the Elk quilt.

You have stayed so focused on the pineapple blocks. Not a favorite activity for me but I love how they look. I hope we see a pic of the elk quilt one of these days. Hum, I need to look back at your blog to see if you've posted one on a day other than Monday!

I've pulled my pineapple papers out so I can finally start this one. I think I will try for a block a day.

I don't mind a recycled picture of your pineapple blocks... I love seeing them over and over again :) I'm still not sure if I am going to work on that, but I like watching your progress on it.

I love your pineapple blocks, but I understand about needing to stay focus on other projects!
