I am participating in the Virginia Shenandoah Botanical quilt sew-along. This is a pattern where the blocks have been drawn from an antique quilt that is in the Virginia Quilt Museum collection. The first month we were to make the three pineapple blocks. I think these are the only repeat blocks in the quilt. I have selected two background fabrics. Both browns and I will alternate them across the quilt. The pineapple blocks all happen to be on the same brown fabric because of their placement in the quilt. I am using a variety of fabrics for the applique. I have quite a pile pulled out from stash that I can choose from.
And all three together on the design wall. None of these are trimmed yet. I like to wait until I am ready to sew the blocks together as the edges may ravel a bit from being handled.
Be sure to visit the blog for the sew-along and read more about the quilt and what others are using for their fabrics.
