September BOM – Improv Half Pineapple Log Cabin Block

Hey Hey Hey Peep-a-deeps! So I thought it was time I started visiting some of the BOMs we did more than a year ago back before many of our members joined. My plan was to do the Wonky Log cabin. While conversing with other members our Sept BOM somehow morphed from your standard Wonky Log cabin to this sweet Improv Half Pineapple Log Cabin Block!

Guidlines:

  1. Triangles are to be solid white as shown in the picture above. The other colors are Orange, Yellow, and bright Pink solids. No tonals or pattern fabric for this block.
  2. block needs to be squared up to 12.5 inches unfinished

So let’s get started…

I started with a white square and did a flip n sew to add the bright pink triangle

Next add a white triangle (no need to be exact - this will put the wonky into it)

Sew and trim the excess

Flip up the white triangle and iron (make your iron your best friend, it really does make a difference)

Then just continue to build

It is a pretty simple block that I feel comes out looking quite stunning. I can’t wait to see all of ours together on the wall at our September meeting!
