Pineapple Pincushion

Ventura Modern Quilt Guild and Valley Modern Quilt Guild hold monthly challenges for the guild members that are a fun way to get everyone involved. I enjoy seeing and hearing about other peoples creative process, and I love seeing their finished product. Coming up is a pincushion challenge/swap and I usually wait til the last minute but this time I’m ready way ahead of time. You can never have too many pincushions. I will post the paper-pieced temple under the tutorials section for anyone interested.

Everybody knows that paper piecing isn’t one of my favorite things. That being said, I do appreciate the precision that paper piecing offers. I ran across this pattern on a Pinterest marathon and it really caught my eye. The original was a ruby in various shades of red. Going through my stash I realized that a trip to the quilt store was necessary. The pattern was very well written and it took less than an hour to make the block. I’m going to enlarge the Gemstone paper-pieced pattern from 3rd Story Workshop and make it again in a larger size. This block finishes at 12 inches and I’m not sure what to do with the block now that it is done…oh well, on to the next project.
