I promised pictures of the Pineapple Quilt --
First what I thought I was going to do. I'll probably machine applique these angels on some other piece -- they are cute.
Here's the whole piece with the 2 sample pieced borders. I made a mistake on the first one as I really like the 9 patch look of the second one. But, this was enough to get an idea. I will have to put a spacer border in to make either of these borders fit. I'll figure that out later.
Here's a close-up of the tiny border. Those strips are 1/2" finished. (Am I out of my mind -- this would take forever!
And finally, the border strip bigger and with the 9 patch look. I had to really think about how Judy Martin did this in the book. This one is my favorite.
I only have a bit of the white left. I'll probably have to add another white from the stash to get all the white squares done. And, I'm wondering if I will have enough of these older red christmas prints. I would love to use them all up! This might become a stashbusting quilt after all!
It is now time to actually DO some sewing. I am planning to go to my local quilt store to buy some backing fabric. She's got a buy 2 yards get 3rd yard free sale going on. I've got a couple of quilts waiting for backing. I tend to buy much smaller pieces so don't usually have backing hanging around. Sometimes I piece it but not all the time. Hopefully in June I'll start getting more things finished! (long arm is arriving at the end of this month! YEA!)
