WIP Wednesday [Pineapple]

It's been a while since I made any blocks - I've been working on the Sunrise quilt for Baby - on Monday I got it pieced:

Yesterday I got it quilted, and I've sewn down half of the binding, so hopefully by the end of the week I'll have a finish!

Today I sat down to the #365blocks: the last one I completed was the block for 10th March. So two weeks to catch up. Today I focused on the most recent blocks - it meant I could enter this week's link up, and to be honest, they looked easier! I'll work on the mitred corners tomorrow. Maybe.

I enjoyed these blocks - nothing too complex, all turned out more or less the right size, I like my fabric choices except for the busy blue one... The green block on the left is called Pineapple flower which is appropriate for this week: one of the myths for inducing labour is to eat pineapple: further checking online would suggest that in order to get enough of the chemical that could have an impact, I'd need to eat 7 pineapples including the core. The most likely result of eating that much pineapple is indigestion, not labour! The small amount of pineapple I ate yesterday has not had the desired result!
