Pineapple Blocks These Pineapple blocks were so fun to make, and I love the bright yellow that I selected to go in my quilt! Traditionally a Pineapple block is paper-pieced, however, with the Pineapple Trim Tool we are able to piece without the paper and square up as we go! If you haven't seen [...]

Week 10 This week was just a lot of fun! After "sashing" and trimming down 20-odd blocks, I ran out the solid white I had been consistently using - no problem though, I improvised! I found a couple white fabrics that were close enough, and dove deep into my scrap bin. I love [...]

Week 8 This week I saw the midpoint of my 100 days! I'm really enjoying the improv quilting project, and plan to work toward some quilt tops soon! I think I've been overwhelmed by the number of blocks whenever I get near them, so this week my goal is to sort blocks/units. [...]

Week 7 This week of improv quilting I was largely inspired by Quiltcon, and some of the amazing quilts that came out of the show on Instagram. I had fun playing with the log cabin type blocks, and piecing leftover bits from my cutting mat. My first log cabin, places the black strategically [...]
