Quite A Pear - A Fruit Salad Block

Whew - we survived the summer, and more importantly, we survived the first two and a half weeks of school. It was not without incident, which is why this post is later than intended. But the kids are finally settling into their routines* and I'm finally getting a real chance to sew.

In fact, I managed to get the pear and next month's plum sewn already. And I'm almost done with the planning the rest of the fruit. Which means I'm almost to the fun part - figuring out the quilt layout!

But first, a short and sweet block for a short and sweet fruit! 

Get the printer-friendly pattern here!

I am using the same neutral (Kona White) in all my blocks, and I use the Quilt in a Day triangle ruler to trim my half square triangles.

If you’re joining me in these blocks, please use #fruitsaladquilt on Instagram or comment here so I can find your blog! I will be posting one block a month, free on PayHip until Jan 31, 2019. In December 2018, there will be a layout pattern for the entire Fruit Salad quilt, as well as more specific yardage.

*Literally, as I was writing this post, one of the kids was sent home sick from school. We are neeeeeeeever going to get into a routine.
