I've been working on a fun quilt with [real] pineapple blocks. Using mostly batiks, I started assembling a square with strips from various fabrics, then ironed fusible web on the back, cut it, and machine appliqued it onto the mottled cream background.
There are nine 10.5" x 16.5" blocks in total. I am trying to decide whether I should add sashing or not. The border will likely be different than the one on the pattern, too (!), as I am seriously considering paper-piecing. What do you think? I will consider my options while I travel, and hope to finish it when I return.
Working with all these colors made me feel so good inside!
