Sandee's Mini Charm Pack Challenge

We absolutely adore this beautiful Pineapple Mini created by Sandee with the Farmhouse Mini Charm Pack! Sandee is originally from Hawaii and we love that she chose a project that represents "home" for her.

Here's Sandee's write up for the Sew Pro Staff Mini Charm Pack Challenge:
 Pineapple Mini
 I was super excited to start my first project as a Sew Pro Staff member.  When I received my mini charm square pack in Farmhouse fabric I knew exactly what I would make. I had been gushing over the pineapple minis that I've seen all over Instagram. Brings back sweet memories of my home in Hawaii.
 Pineapple Mini Quilt - pattern inspired by Jackie Padesky quilts
Pineapple crown - 8 - 2 1/2" squares
White- 8 - 2 1/2" squares
Body of pineapple - 20 - 2 1/2" squares

If you take a look at my layout and follow along you can see that HST make up the crown and the top and bottom corners of the pineapple body.  This is the perfect project for mini charm packs, minimal cutting! Play around with fabric combinations to make it your own.

For my sashing I cut 2 1/2 inch strips x width and length of pineapple.  After I quilted the mini I cut the backing fabric saving 1" all the way around and used that as my binding.  I call it "cheat binding" but for a mini it works wonderfully!
