So once I finished Tickled Red, I still had the majority of my red bundle left to play with, so I made 18 more of my 3 inch mini churn dash blocks.
I now have a total of 40.
Cathy, at Quilting on Main St, recently blogged about a pineapple quilt she just got back from the quilter. She went with a great combination of French General fabric so naturally I loved it. Then Nicole, at Sisters Choice, caught the pineapple quilt bug, dug out all her French General reds, pinks, and background fabric and made this inspiration block. It finishes at 12 inches. Nicole plans to use the same ruler Cathy used to make her blocks, the Possibilities Pineapple ruler.
Well I've been wanting to make a pineapple quilt for forever, and since I'm currently working with French General fabric I thought I would use what's left of my red bundle and go with a scrappy red and cream pineapple quilt instead. Here's my inspiration block.
I'm going to paper piece my blocks, and go a little smaller, this block is 6 1/2 inches. I'm planning to make 100 of them and for this to be another little side project this year.
