Scrap Fabric Sewing | Pineapple Block

All posts may contain affiliate links.

Some days just don’t go as planned. Yesterday was one of them. I had mapped out a day of secret sewing to finish up a few deadlines, clean the house and prep for an upcoming sewing retreat but this pile of scraps derailed. My day was quickly filled with scrap fabric sewing.

Sewing fabric scraps is one of those never have time for projects that we all want to do. Well today, I pushed everything to the side and made something amazing!

I have no idea why but I just could not let it go. Before I knew it, I was stitching tiny bits together to make something new. Did I mention those HST’s finish at 1 1/4″?  -Talk about tiny!

I tried my best to push them off to the side but they just kept teasing me. Before I knew it I was neck deep into making these cuties a quilt block. Thank goodness for my quilting foot and the laser beam. Without them, I think this scrap fabric sewing project would not have seen the light of day.

This pineapple block is my photo finish of the day. (Update- the Pineapple Smoothie block pattern can be found here.)

Now, I need to get my rear in gear because Mom flies in this morning, I’m teaching this afternoon and Oh yeah, I still need to pack!!
