Ok so I guess I'm officially on a new tangent....I am really stoked about this
new UFO Long Time Gone Quilt....I found another pineapple block pattern which I thought was really different from the first one and also a lot faster to make on my embroidery machine:
The new one (on the left) has a really large center patch set on point and over all, I like this pattern better than the first pattern (on the right). But I don't like that all the points on the patch are cut off....
Even so, I think it looks more "pineappley" (is that a word?)
Or I could use an Alice in Wonderland word, "muchier"
...the new block as pineapples go is muchier than the other one......( I am definitely digressing here.....)
ok... since I didn't like the cut-off points, I edited both patterns in my embroidery software, then merged the parts on each that I liked, and came up with a 3rd pattern which I will use for the rest of the blocks.......(It's the block in the middle and definitely muchier and pineappleier than the others)
I have also been working on my gnome garden in the back yard....I moved the Gnomes into my mulberry tree because they said they had been commuting too far everyday to come to work at the barn.....lol
