Clementine Quilt Along Month 5

Welcome to Month 5 of the Clementine Quilt Along hosted by Fat Quarter Shop. The name of this month's block is Pineapples Puzzle, and here are my blocks:

I made lots of half square triangles, large and small, then put them together to make the 12-1/2" and the 20-1/2" blocks.

The seams can be a bit tricky to sew because the points get bulky when we nest them. For sure that is the reason why my blocks are coming out larger than they should as, try as I may, the presser foot goes: "There ain't no way I am climbing over that bump" and it swerves causing the seam to be less than 1/4". Dang. My seam ripper worked hard to no avail.

Still, I can't way to put them all together because the fabrics are so fun! Here are all the blocks I've made:

The pattern for this month's block is available today at Fat Quarter Shop's blog, along with the previous blocks. Fat Quarter Shop and Moda Fabrics are benefiting St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital with this year’s quilt along. They are asking for a small donation in exchange for downloading each month’s pattern, and Fat Quarter Shop and Moda will match up to $20,000 of our donation.

You can find the full fabric requirements and all the patterns and videos posted so far on Fat Quarter Shop's blog Clementine Quilt Along page. The kit I got came with all I needed for this project, and I also got the backing.

Have a great weekend,
