Bee for May
My Guild has begun a Bee series and I am coordinating the Intermediate Group. Our first Queen has requested pink and magenta pineapples. I'd never pieced a pineapple block before, so I was delighted with this assignment. I did have to beg some additional scraps from friends because pink is not one of my regular colors.
Since it's so easy to make a major mess-up with paper-piecing, I started with three foundations instead of the two that were required. I figured that when the major mess-up occurred, I wouldn't want to go all the way back to the beginning again. Fortunately, I only had a minor mess-up. It was on the very last round and easily fixable. So our Queen is receiving three blocks from me rather than two.
I really, really like how they look together and am eager to see Polly's finished quilt.
