A new flimsy.....


My red and cream scraps are all used up in this pineapple block quilt.....


I am really pleased with how it has worked out....

I did think consider borders but I will go with some red binding and leave it at that ....


I have done the next 10 blocks of Naive Melody quilt....  a SAL hosted by Lucy Engels on Instagram.


these blocks are surprisingly quick to do considering the needleturn applique... I think because they are fairly big shapes with gentle turns (the finished block is 6 1/2").  I am thoroughly enjoying it.

Embroidery in front of TV this week sees another banner block done....

 
There is one last block which is almost complete..... then I need to catch up on my Wish You Well BOM I have got behind on....

Righto, Gotto Go....  I am trying out a new free motion quilting pattern today....  an all over fun design on a kids quilt.....


I hope you have a lovely weekend ......

I think you are right about no borders........let those beautiful pineapples be seen with no distraction. The Naive Melody is certainly modern...looking forward to see the finish on it. and, as always, your stitchery is lovely. Do you FMQ with a regular FMQ presser foot or do you have one of those fancy electronic FMQ ones? I am always so impressed with your FMQ!

The pineapple blocks just sparkle all together! Beautiful in red and cream. And that new quilting motif looks very fun! Is that the back of the quilt, or is it a whole cloth piece?

Love the way your pineapple quilt has turned out. It looks great. I agree that it doesn't need a border.
Great work with the blocks and embroidery, too.
Love the backing on the quilt you are working on.
