    I went out to night or I would have started already lol. I just got back and I will take the book to bed and check some more. It is not really a hard quilt, it's just going to take a lot of time to make. The entire quilt is made Like Dunster's really or the something like the Bethlehem or broken star. It's just a matter of where you place your fabrics, but I will post as I go along so you can see and maybe try one yourself.

    I love a challenge and I am still checking that square pineapple block to make sure it is correct......

    Ok, I had to change the square pineapple block. It's a good thing I just printed out and worked on one pattern lol. I thought the strips on the square had to be the same size as the strips on the diamonds. I realized the squares alone make the first fairy ring and the star in the middle didn't really matter.

    So I went back into Block Base and found a tight pineapple block with the same amount of strips as on the pattern and printed out the blocks at 16.5. I used 11x17 paper and it took two sheets for one block and one sheet of letter size. I have finished taping six patterns together and will finish the other two tomorrow and hopefully sew at least one block of either a diamond or a square.

    The pattern is lovely though it looks like it can be a challenge perhaps. I am so looking forward to seeing your quilt finished. Please post as you go along. Good luck and best wishes.

    I took one of Sharon Rexroad's classes a few years ago, it was so interesting and we made our pineapple stars. Love them, have made several since then.

    This quilt is going to be a lot of work. I have to make more pineapple pattern pp blocks. I ironed some freezer paper to one block and carefully traced the pattern and I will use that to make as many blocks as I can and then switch to the paper ones that came in the package.

    I had to go help a friend today with her new kindle so all I got done was the freezer paper pattern lol....
