This is the box that I am throwing scraps into for my PP Pineapple. I don't EVER seem to get to the bottom of this box.
I did myself a favor and finally separated the lights from the darks. When I am bored of working on it, the box top with the lights sits down inside the green box.
These are all that I have done. I still lack 38 more. 38! Seems like it will take me a lifetime to do 38.........and that's just for the "body", I still lack the border blocks too. 43, I think. I don't have a deadline, I don't kid myself thinking I am going to finish it RIGHT NOW. This is one of my GO TO projects. Sort of like therapy sewing , you know? Ha! Therapy?? There are 37 pieces per block. When it's done, there will be over 5000 pieces.....More like insanity. but you know what? I already LOVE this quilt. I finsih 10 or 20 blocks & I just can not resist laying them out & just drooling over how much I LOVE this quilt.
QB1 asks me how I am going to quilt them (yes them, she's making one too! AND, I have enough scraps for .......oh, I don't know.........2 or 3 more?) I told her that I just wanted a nice pantograph on it. It is so incredibly busy, that any really nice quilting will be lost & never seen!
So? What do you think? How would you quilt it? Remember, I'm a little ways away from GETTING it quilted. I lack 38 body blocks & 43 border blocks. Might as well be a million!! Ha Ha!
