Beautiful! Maybe this won't be a "forever" project.
I am really enjoying the process of assembling this kit. I have strips draped over a vintage wooden drying rack and thus far (working on eighth triangle) it has been a lot of fun.
This quilt making process will be interrupted when I start working on the new polymer clay class tomorrow. It's a darned shame that I have to grocery shop, cook meals and do the laundry in between all the serious hobby stuff I have planned.
I am making a few blocks each day on my orange and blue improve quilt. I cut a total of 19 squares each of orange and blue at 15" inches. Then I paired them one blue with one orange and am creating those wonky quarter circle strips so in the end there are two arcs of color rinning thru each background. I am gonna try a few that have 3 arcs just to add some interest. I have an idea where this is going but with any improve the quilt can evolve as it progresses.
I am making a piano key border to finish my Squished Pineapple quilt.
This is the last project that was started/worked on during my time in Big Spring. This was not a happy time of my life and it feels quite liberating to be able to completely close this chapter.
Colleen was doing an absolutely gorgeous red and black quilt at retreat a couple of years ago. I really really liked it and wanted to do something similar. I couldn't do red/black because those are Texas Tech colors. Given that I was living in Lubbock at the time, anything that is red/black immediately becomes a Tech item. So I decided to make it blue and black. I think this color combo is quite striking.
I had never made a pineapple quilt, but in looking at it I figured it was just a version of a string quilt so how hard could it be, right? I also had the thought that the price of a pineapple ruler was not justified. (Spoiler: It is) Well, I don't know how hard it could be, but since I'm a math/geometry moron, my version is somewhat different than the traditional pineapple quilt. I embraced my half ass techniques and soldiered on even when it was painfully obvious that I probably should have looked up a tutorial or something.
I really don't like wasting hours of work so I figure non quilting people won't know that it really isn't supposed to look like that. I'm going with the story that my pineapples fell off the truck....slightly flattened, a little bruised, some badly mangled, but still fun.
What is not fun is a piano key border made of 1.5" strips. I'll post a picture after I get all 573843 border strips put together.
I think I'm feeling the heat from this quilt already.
That quilt is going to look awesome Judy. And quite Hot.
Doing a pineapple quilt is on my wish list, but it keeps moving down the list as easier projects pop up. I look forward to seeing your quilt Mishii.
Here’s one that I recently made. Just needs its label and then into the case for when I go to New Zealand in May for the foster kiddies.
Mishii, you are a big tease!! I was expecting a photo of a smushed pineapple NOW, not later after you get all 573843 border strips put together. I could die of old age by then .....
