I’m sewing in my very own sewing room again and I was excited to get this month’s fabrics for the Long Time Gone block of the month. This month we made the Jacob’s Ladder block and the strip of Pineapple blocks. We’re basically finishing up the blocks for the upper left hand corner.
I’ve always wanted to try my hand at Pineapple blocks but I think I’m over that now. These little blocks are 5 inches finished and there are 37 little pieces of fabric! There are 16 of these blocks in total throughout the quilt, so this was only a taste. I get to make more!
This month while I was laying all the finished blocks out, I realized that I made last month’s half triangles block backwards or upside down or something. My triangles are not going the way they’re supposed to.
At this point, I’m not changing it and I don’t think it really matters. The block has the correct measurements so it will fit in where it’s supposed to. My quilt will just be a little different than all the others. Still nice.
I’m already loving this bright, fun scrappy quilt!
