It's a party with my multicolored scraps today! These babies don't get out much because their multicolored personalities tend to be larger than life. They don't always play well with others. But, today, they are out in force partnering with quiet types to make pineapple blocks!
First I separated my multicolored scraps into saturated (left), low volume (right) and too-middle-of-the-road-to-use (above). I also grabbed my basket of white/cream scraps.
This is my first time making pineapple blocks. I'm following Amanda Jean's tutorial, but using triangle scraps, rather than squares cut in half, to get started.
After the first few steps, they look like square-in-square blocks...
But more layers and trimmings bring out the pineapple. Yay!
Folks, these blocks are Time Consuming. But I like it. And the scraps are happy.
