Project

Teal Pineapple Topper

Project Description

What are you most proud of? I sewed the binding on the machine and there are not any puckers. What advice would you give someone starting this project? For me, it was a bit of a challenge because I wanted the get the points exact and the setting triangles are always difficult.

What you will need

  • Scrap batiks

Q&A with Arlene C

K Lee 2Strings asked:
Wow! This is so colorful and the colors coordinate beautifully for coming from your stash. I love the pattern, but that's a ton of points to match up. Your work is very precise - absolutely flawless. I can only see doing this in "a day" if it were paper foundation pieced and your worked a very long day.
Arlene C answered:
Thanks. Actually the fabrics came from my scraps versus stash. LOL I really try to be precise but sometimes Murphy's Law sticks its nose in. There were way too many dinky seams in this and foundation paper piecing might have been easier.
LadyDees asked:
Is this paper piecing? Is the pattern for sale?
Arlene C answered:
I wish it were foundation paper piecing. But I found the pattern in a book. "Fat Quarter Small Quilts" by Darlene Zimmerman (actual pattern is called "Under The Sea" and is approximately 25x25 in.)
