It’s a new year at Pineapple Fabrics and great things are happening! We are switching up the blog postings this year just to keep things interesting! You can expect great fabric, fun projects, new ideas, the occasional recipe (that requires Pineapple), sewing tutorials, & more. We are excited for the new year & hope you take the time to join us.
Think Outside the Block
Come join us on our Pineapple Peeps group on Facebook and start a sew-along with us! Today Susan Pierce is starting a fun sew-along for members. This is a tutorial on altering blocks. Changing components of the block and careful selection of fabric placement can sometimes yield a secondary design, which will enhance your quilt. We will be making a 12″ block. You can stop at that and have a candle mat. Make 3 to 4 blocks and you have a table runner. Make 4 blocks and you have a table topper or wall hanging. Or, you could go on to make many of these blocks to make a quilt. An ALICE Pineapple Pack (or equivalent) will make the blocks for the table runner. Make sure you have one light fabric, two medium fabrics, and two dark fabrics. You will need an additional yard for the binding and backing.
Love a Trio
Introducing Yard Trios! 3 Curated 1-yard pieces. Perfect for making quick and simple quilts or adding fabric to mix into a work in progress. Whatever the reason you will love these color and theme coordinated bundles. We have pattern books by Donna Robertson of Fabric Cafe that work with just 3-yard cuts of fabric giving you multiple quilt possibilities!
New Project Pouch
We love coming up with new projects & this is a project for your projects! The new “Project Pouch” is made with an Alice Pineapple Pack. Great for storing your Pineapple projects in. Slip the pattern under the vinyl, the pouch is roomy enough to hold any of our Pineapple Packs. Store your pack, backing fabric, thread, and additional supplies. When you’re ready to sew, grab your pouch and go. Sewing made easy!
