Pineapples - Mid Month Progress

A Collage of Finished Pineapple Blocks

Mid Month Progress

Wonderful to see so many quilters busy at work on their Pineapple blocks!

We are linking up with our blogging friends to share their progress.

Please be sure to visit them by clicking on the thumbnail pictures at the bottom of this post. (check back often as we will be adding more links over the next week or so) To see even more pictures of the beautiful blocks and chat with other quilters participating in the Sew Along visit the SVBAQ facebook page.

Esther's Antique Block and Inked Lettering
The original blocks were inked with the names of the botanicals.

Will you ink your blocks or perhaps embroider them?

Are you using Pine Apple as Esther did?
Adding a flourish to your font?

In this example Susie chose machine embroidery to label her block.

If you've completed a block that you'd like to share and you don't have a blog email your picture to us.  We also encourage you to post it to the SVBAQ FaceBook Page.

We can hardly wait until November 1 - How about you?

No need to create a new blog post if you've already posted your Pineapple blocks. Simply add the url address of that post where indicated when you click the link above.
