I never realized how small one inch of fabric is! Each one of the little strips finishes at just half an inch. I want to make 8 of these so I could make a little Fall table topper to match my little quilt that I'm binding but after making one, I don't know if i even want to make the big reproduction pineapple anymore! It's just so much work and it does not go fast. We'll have to to wait and see if I stick it out of If I add this to my UFO bin.
