Pineapple Blocks These Pineapple blocks were so fun to make, and I love the bright yellow that I selected to go in my quilt!

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 [...]
