This link-up will be open for one week - until Thursday, April 23 (4 am ET/1 am PT).  You are welcome to share any and all of the blocks you completed this week.  When this link-up closes, a new one will open (magic!) so please don't worry if you fall behind.

They also offer Pineapple Packs, which are quilt shop quality precut fabric collections. Each pack includes five fabrics coordinated by an in house designer for the best possible variety of color and patterns. Every Pineapple Pack purchased includes a free pattern that is designed for the precuts in the pack making sewing projects as easy as 1, 2, 3!
