I know this post is last minute but I had a hard time deciding my November OMG. Finally I decided on piecing another 20 pineapple blocks. I had done 22 blocks in September. These blocks are to go into a quilt that requires at least 49 blocks. I am not so hopeful that I can complete these 20 blocks in November but I will try. The quilt is commissioned by a gentleman worshiping in a sister church. He is willing to contribute to our church’s lease renewal fund for this pineapple quilt that I am sewing. I am flattered but at the same time stressed. Not sure if the quilt will be to his liking. Here is a picture of the blocks that I had done for September. Hopefully at the end of November I can show another 20 blocks added in. LOL. I am linking up with November OMG at Elm Street Quilts
I made it! 20 pineapple blocks each measuring 12.5 x 12.5 inches. When I put this down as my goal for September, Heidi commented that pineapple blocks are time consuming to make. She could not be more right. I cut strips of 1.5 inches wide from my stash, both dark and light coloured fabric and I sewed 2 blocks at a time using chain piecing. Still it took me a few hours just to sew 2 blocks up. I need more than 20 blocks, at least 49. As at last night, I completed 20 blocks and by tonight (still September), I would have an additional 2 more blocks. I exceeded my target! It feels great to meet one’s goal. I think I am very task oriented. LOL.
I love this pattern as it is a great scrap buster. I am able to use fabric leftover from my previous projects. Can you spot familiar fabrics?
