2015 RSC March Yellow Week 3 and Pineapple Blossom Progress
After week three of the RSC I'll add a cotton knitted yellow dishcloth to my collection. The two scrappy 8.5" blocks in the picture will become a hot pad this week. The thirty-six 5.5" cocoa mug blocks made during last year's RSC became a UFO. I have started paper piecing 5.5" string blocks to mix with the mug blocks. If all the blocks are sashed, it will make a small quilt.
To see what others made with their yellow prints this week, go here Saturday morning.
I've made good progress sashing and sewing my Bonnie Hunter Pineapple Blossom blocks together. Hopefully I'll finish the top next week and start piecing the backing.
I goofed making four Pineapple Blossom blocks, but they look pretty. I may sash them and add a colorful key board border for a colorful charity baby quilt.
I like to reply to all comments, but I can't when those that leave comments are "no-reply" bloggers. I've had several this year. Last week Marsha has a question about Bonnie Hunter's Pineapple Blossom blocks. They are not paper pieced. The Pineapple Blossom quilt is a free pattern on Bonnie's website. Here is the link.
