There were charity blocks to complete...
Using tutorials found at Shabby Fabrics, I made a Disappearing 4-Patch on the LEFT and a Disappearing 4-Patch With a Twist on the RIGHT:
Pineapple Pieces blocks for a children's charity available through North Carolina owned and operated Pineapple Fabrics:
... A party to prepare for...
I decided to make this Skinny Bin from Kitty @ Night Quilter as a gift. Suffice it to say, instructions are merely a suggestion. Mine came out about an inch taller than the tutorial size - and that was AFTER cutting it down a bit! That's how it came to be known as Skinny Bin Deluxe:
These scrappy "Made Fabric" panels (shown on my design floor below) were used to create the Pineapple Pieces block (top) and the Skinny Bin (bottom):
In case you were hoping for a better look at the Skinny Bin, here is the gratuitous garden shot with one of my specimen lilies purchase on a field trip to the local-ish daylily farm before it closed to the public a number of years ago:
As well as, a party to attend...
Our guest of honor, all decked out in celebration attire:
It was a fun day and our retiree was SEW surprised as she opened her gift:
I realize there aren't as many "action shots" as I normally include in a Design Floor Friday post, but the time crunch had me focused on the project instead of the process.
I missed a number of photo ops during the making of my Skinny Bin. For those of you who like that sort of thing, I apologize.
