Nah! You know as well as I do that the weekend is "different!" 4:30 on a weekday....PSHT! Fat chance!
Anyway, couldn't sleep for one reason or another this morning. So by 4:45, I just got up and started my day with a cup of coffee and my computer. By 6:00, I wasn't finding any new blog updates, so......t'scha! Might as well head downstairs!
I wasn't sure if I would start up the machine; I didn't want to risk waking anyone, even though my room is quite a distance away from any sleeping ears.
Regardless, I pulled red, red, red and more red.
By 10:00, I had a whole cutting board filled and organized with enough units to make thirty-five (35) Bonnie Hunter's Pineapple Blossom blocks. I saw a rendition in all blue recently, and absolutely loved it. This is a fun pattern and GREAT way to use up scraps.
Took a little brunch-break, and then back to it.
At 3:00, I decided to finally close up shop but not before nearly piecing all 35 blocks. All that remains is the final white corners...
For any of you who have made this block before or any number of Bonnie Hunter blocks, you know she uses the flip-method quite a bit, which leads to bonus triangles. Seventy (70) bonus tris already done; 70 more will be completed once the final white corners are added.
I also took time to piece and press a few more HSTs for RRCB. 240 done. Slow-n-steady :0)
Oh, and remember that pic from last night (right)? WHAT a difference a little "soak in a tub" makes!
Good luck Pack! Let the game begin!
