What 1,332 Cut Pieces of Fabric Look Like

I spent yesterday and today cutting bits for Pineapple paper pieced blocks for my mom’s Aloha Quilt (her fabric is the tropical print at the top, formerly her kitchen curtains).

What 1,976 Pieces of Fabric Look Like

The quilt will have thirty-six 9″ paper pieced blocks plus borders. Each block will have 10 different fabrics (fabric stack 1 is under stack 9 – same Kona Sand solid). That 36 x 4 x 9 “logs” + 36 centers = 1,332 pieces of fabric.

After I got it all cut and lined up prettily, Zoom jumped up on the cutting table and sat with her butt in the middle of the paper pattern. Fortunately she got bored before flicking her tail and scattering them to the wind and left them unscathed.

  1. Looks like you have a nice organization method. I wish I could learn to be as organized. I usually have fabric every where and have a mess… I do not even have a cat to blame the mess on.

    I do use a design wall most of the time when I plan my quilts just because I am indecisive on what color I want where. I cannot wait to see the pictures.

    Happy Quilting… Nonnie

  2. Wow. Are your shoulders tired? I learned very quickly how important little lettered tags and a pin are in keeping you sane. I can’t wait to see what you do with this pile of goodness! 🙂

  3. Bravo! I lok forward to seeing your finished quilt! I love the curtain fabric, and the coordinates look really great with it. I am always amazed at how fast you finish projects. Mine pitter patter along for years… I don’t mind – I tend to get distracted, and my nest is getting emptier next year, so I anticipate a bit more quilting time.

  4. Wow! That is a lot of pieces. I just finished a small paper piecing project and know what a job you have ahead of you. I bet it will be beautiful.
