|Block No 3|
I know they are only meant to be figuaritive pictures but I couldn't help feeling that maybe we have a strawberry. Of course, I couldn't work out what that smaller bit at the end was meant to be, because no strawberry I've ever eaten has a top to it. I've never seen a pineapple close up in the ground, but I felt the stem had more strawberry qualities than pineapple. And perhaps, strawberries are similar in size to cherries and would have fitted in with the cherry tree concept better. Just musings while I stitch away. If we had been sitting in a circle sewing, I would have shared these thoughts with you.
I have a few pineapple prints, having only ever made one pineapple previously! So it was a bonus to have the opportunity to select four different fabrics. The only difficulty was frequently losing the fingerling freezer paper. Tracing it out and cutting it a few times was a frustrating waste of time. In future, I plan to keep every pattern piece in a clip-lock plastic bag until the block is finished.
Now onto the next block.
