I get the pattern, fabric and charm sent from the Quilted Crow Girls every two months. I signed up on a whim last year and it has been a bit of fun. The fabrics are very traditional, maybe a civil war style and I don't have fabrics like that in my stash. The blocks are traditional patterns and I haven't done traditional piecing for years and it is nice to revisit the techniques.
They send a foundation pattern in the kit and this makes it so easy to open it up and start sewing! This time it was the pineapple block and it took a lot longer than all the other blocks so far. I hope that they aren't getting more difficult each time!
Even when foundation piecing you have to be very accurate when sewing the block because just a slight deviation from the line and your points are off.
The pineapple block has always been one of my favourites and years ago I had been planning on making an entire quilt with the block. I really like the striped fabric on the outside, it gives a lot of interest to the block.
The block is 6" finished.
I must show you the little charm that came with it. It's hard to believe that the little charm block is made of fabric as well. I am glad that I didn't have to make that block!
Bye for now,
