A small finish again this week, but of the fabric kind. When I returned to quilting in July 2017, I made some Pineapple Blocks. But didn’t know what to do with them. I added a thin sashing between the four blocks and around them. Then I added Flying Geese borders with open space between. At one point I imagined being good enough at FMQ to do feathers in the blank space. Oh ye of too much faith! LOL
When 2019 started I identified 12 items I wanted to finish. Quilting this top made the list. In fact, 7 of the items need quilting! Do you think I have a top problem? Yes, too many tops produced compared to the quilting done. I planned to quilt this in April, and promptly failed. Doh! Then May rolled around much too quickly and I was forced to carry it over. My goals for this week did not include getting to this piece. So of course, that’s what I decided to work on. Dude? I have 3 bags I need to finish sewing for the Guild Challenge on Monday!!!! Ack! But I must say, I am so glad I finished Pineapple Punch!!
I just started stitching in the ditch on the Pineapples and it ended up spiraling in and then out. Perfect! For the border I decided to duplicate the Flying Geese, because I am not even trying feathers, at all, EVER! OK, not right now. I also stitched around the FG blocks to help them stand out. I am so pleased with the final project!
So, how’s your Friday going?
