I’ve started work on the Pineapple Block and it has proven to be a little bit tricky, but on the plus side I’ve learnt a few things about Embird.
This little magic tool
allows you to specify the length and width (exactly) of objects – no more using the grid to create the right size.
And you can use Guide Lines to split objects that is how I chopped the top off the outer most triangles.
That way I just created one triangle and copy, pasted and rotated as required – much more accurate.
My one concern is the non-straight seams and how easy they will be to stitch and flip.
I have another design in mind that only has straight seams it might be worth changing now before I have committed too much time.
On a completely different note, it is Australia Day and my pavlova is cooling in the oven. I think I am prepared.
