Date Night With My Sewing Machine

OK, it's really bad when you have to set up a "date night" with your sewing machine!  I'm not kidding - I've been so busy trying to get things ready for upcoming shows, packing orders and family stuff that yesterday I decided it was "Date Night With The Sewing Machine".

This is what I did!  I've been tinkering with this idea in my head on how to do a pineapple block - but not have to do paper piecing.  I'm not a big fan of paper piecing - it's a stretch when I use triangle paper even, it just drives me bonkers to have to tear off all those little bits of paper off!

Anyhow, I think the block turned out pretty well.  I want to sit and play around with this idea a little more. I used all pre-cut strips of fabric from our January fabric pack of the "Simply Strips Club". 

Back to work for me, I'm itching to get playing around with some of the newest Jo Morton fabrics - Toasty and Luminarias - what fun! But first I have to get a few things ready for our book signing event at
