I’m getting closer to finishing the Prairie Flowers Encore centre, and started thinking about what to do with it! I remembered some Pineapple Blossom blocks I had started…a block design by Bonnie Hunter at Quiltville. This is what I came up with in Electric Quilt.
Bonnie sets these Pineapple Blossom blocks with a narrow sashing, so when I was sewing the blocks I went ahead and grouped them into four with the sashing in between….heres a pic of four blocks, which are each a group of four.
When I went to sew some more blocks I realized that I had designed the quilt with 12″ blocks (a group of four) when actually a group of four with sashing is 13″. I tried changing the inner border width to 5″, but it just didn’t look right. So I ended up deciding to remove the sashing and just sew the blocks side by side.
Meanwhile, I had done the straight line quilting on the outer border of Jane’s Path….still undecided on what if anything to quilt on the inner border.
