Pink Pineapple - Project Quilting Season14, Challenge 2

   This is the second challenge of Season 14 of Project Quilting.

I'm excited to join in the challenge -  Pink Tint

My entry:
Pink Pineapple

this is the 10th year I'm participating.
Kim announces a challenge and you have one week to create something quilty.
Prizes can be won and it's a great way to meet new blogging friends.

The rule in this challenge is that some shade of pink must dominate this project.
It must include either applique, piecing, or have 3 layers stitched together by hand or machine.

It's so funny that I chose to use color for the first challenge this year.
So I went in the same direction with the second challenge.
I made a paper piece pattern with Electric Quilt.

I fink that when I am using super tiny pieces, StitchnSew Quilt Block Sheets hold together so much better than paper.  You can print directly from an inkjet printer and see your fabrics so much better while you stitch.

I found the cutest tiny quilt block fabric in my stash for the center

and stitched 85 tiny pieces to make
Pink Pineapple

The pincushion is beautiful. The staggered light/dark and then having 2 of each value is delightful.

I love this! The colors and the precision of the paper-piecing are awesome. (You will see that I have copied some of your technique in the Shades of Blue challenge...a compliment to your great style!) Now I may have to make one of these. :)
