Tiny Tuesday - Pineapple

 This is the 4th block in the Midget Applique series.  It is called Pineapple and it has 4 pieces. I am love with the yellow fabric that I found for the pineapple.  There was a tiny little bit leftover from a paper piecing project of long ago.  I can see why applique fans save every little bit of fabric, the right one can really make a block pop. 
I used silk thread for the first time on this block and it really hides itself nicely.  I will definitely be using it for applique in the future.

That yellow really is perfect to represent a pineapple. Very nice!

Great job! I admire that you can applique that tricky edge and such small pieces!

Perfect fabric! Don't you just LOVE it when you happen to have exactly the right piece in your stash! I also use silk threads for applique and would never go back to regular threads - all the difference in the world.

Love your glorious little pineapple, the symbol of welcome. I think if it were mine I'd have to make 2 and frame one. Gorgeous.

I think this is my favorite midget block you've made.

It is perfect! I have been a convert since I tried the silk thread too. I think it does make a difference.
