I have been working with my mini for the Schnitzel & Boo mini quilt swap which is due this January!
I have been pondering on what mini should I make ever since I got my partner’s detail. Not until recently, I made the decision to go with a mini pineapple log cabin block!! This is totally inspired by the scrappy pinepaaple quilt Amanda is working on. Amanda has finished her 101 Scappy project — and am thinking of starting mine!!!! This — maybe the first of many scrappy finishes. I am not sure how long I will take but I am currently loving making a dent through my stash with these pineapple blocks!!!! so I see a lot more fun in the future while I finish my 101 scrappy project! Anyone wants to join along? I am thinking of having a linky party for scrap projects… progresses and finishes. Maybe every Friday or so. So be in the look out for that.
The blocks are very time consuming, but I love the finish so much!!
I prep all little pieces before sewing them in chain piece 4 at a time.
If you are interested in watching me as I sew through four of the blocks, I uploaded a video on Youtube. The quality of the video is a bit bad as I just found out I was recording in night mode! O well, lesson learnt for next time. You might be able to pick up some tips there. So, head along and watch me babbling for 18 minutes! There is a fast forward part as well, which I found to be fun to watch!
