Welcome back to the Bella Skill Builder Sew Along, hosted by Fat Quarter Shop! This month we are working on blocks 3A and 3B: pineapple blocks. I have never made them before so this was a treat for me. Here they are:
Creative Grids Pineapple Trim Tool. I love this tool!
Fat Quarter Shop patterns calls each piece a 'fabric', even if the different pieces come from the same fabric. This month I got smarter and labeled them (why did I not think about this before???).
Creative Grids Pineapple Trim Tool to build other blocks, so I will take some time to play around with it. The centers for my blocks turned out perfectly.
When asked how I decide which project to work on, I respond that sometimes stress plays a role on my decisions. When too stressed I pick projects with more steps: machine applique', for instance, requires me to trace a shape onto the fusible web, cut, fuse it to fabric, cut, iron it to the background fabric, and machine applique' it. All along I am focused on what I am doing as the worries are fused and stitched away. Such was my experience while stitching these blocks - I was totally present and much more relaxed in the end.
Jolly Jabber, Fat Quarter Shop's blog, and get going. I am headed there right now to check out the blocks made by the participating bloggers as it is so cool to see the same blocks with other color combinations.
Have a great day,
