FLIP-FLOP AND PINEAPPLES

Isn’t this cute? I saw it at the Attic Window Quilt Shop last week. Chris was using it for e-mail sign up papers during the Skip, but she said she’s going to put candy in it this week. Yumm. Well, probably not a pleasing thought – candy from a shoe – but the candy is wrapped and the flip-flop is so cute. I think she said she got it at Hobby Lobby but I don’t know what year. You know, I was just thinking, wouldn't it be great if someone made up with a pattern for a flip-flop like this so we could make our own out of fabric. Hint. Hint.


Don’t you just love this Pineapple piece? I’ve heard someone say if you dream it you can achieve it. I’m dreaming of making sharp points like this. I wonder if I’ll ever be able to make something so precise. My piecework is usually askew, which is why I always make everything bigger so I can cut it down. Measure once, cut twice – I think that must be my motto. That explains why I’d rather do appliqué. But I keep trying. I keep taking those classes at the Attic Window and someday I’ll be a better piecer.

The Stitchin Chicken has a nice tutorial for those fabric baskets that you often see today. This one is a little different. Check it out.
Until next time: Happy Quilting

Thank you so much for the mention in your post!

The Pineapple quilt block is one of my favorite, though I haven't made it myself (yet!). I see one in the not too far future!

I love the flip flop!
