Design Wall Monday

Not much happened in my sewing room this week, although I did manage to get a few more pineapple blocks made this weekend.  Other than that, my time has been spent working on customer quilts.

Looking at some pictures of pineapple blocks, I kind of wish the template I am using (Creative Grids Pineapple Ruler) made one more round. These blocks are 10.5" unfinished, I'm thinking 12.5" might be more pleasing, and have a little bit more of the pineapple curve to them.  Maybe I'll consider that for the next one - I really don't want to unsew all those corner triangles at this point.

This week's plan is to get a few more customer quilts done - I need to finish up some smaller projects, so I can put the giant custom job on the frame this week.  And make some more pineapple blocks in my down time.  And find the table in my sewing room :(  It is a complete disaster in there, with fabric strewn everywhere, and not just the fabric for this pineapple quilt.

Drop by Judy's blog to see what everyone else has on their design walls today.


  1. Love your pineapple blocks!

  2. Do you like the ruler? Is it easier than paper foundation? Blocks are looking good and I think with more made you'll get that circular feeling you're looking for.

  3. Wow! Those pinepple blocks sing to me. I'm looking forward to seeing more blocks. I hear you about fabric all over the place. One of my goals is to clear off the cutting table. We'll see if I succeed.

  4. Bright and beautiful blocks! Hope you can sail through all your customer quilts and get back to having more fun with your pineapple blocks.
