Pineapple blocks and 2013 update

These pineapple blocks are finally done!

I did do other blocks in between, so that helped.


Here I’m done trimming them- not with scissors but rotary cut Smile


All lined up and pretty!

I’m still tearing out papers- almost done though


Here’s another Women of the bible BOW #30

ATHALIAH AND JEHOSHEBA- never heard of them until now

the block is called Grandmother and Athaliah was one, but not a NICE one. wow! killed everyone just so she could have the throne!


I modified the block as it had a lot of Y seams so instead I did HSTs

Today I also worked on some “secret” projects.

I’m sure you can guess what it’s about since it’s an apple and this time of year Smile


Yesterday, Sonja got a hold of my centering tape from the long arm frame and she pulled it and had it wave up and down and thought it was funny!



She also found Winnie the Pooh- he’s bigger than her!


And she’s starting to pull herself up to standing! watch out world!

Pineapple blocks look good! Your Athaliah block looks great, too. I like the easier piecing.
