Nine Patch Pineapple Quilt Sew Along

I'm so excited to start on this new adventure.  I have a couple of cyber quilters interested in joining me in making the Nine Patch Pineapple quilt.  I plan to make a schedule for us to work from.  This is a very relaxed type of sew along.  I don't want this project to be stressful by pushing the group to work too fast.  However, I do want us to be motivated to get the project completed and to encourage us to work on them while seeing each others' fabrics and progress as we go along.  We can share tips and techniques as well.  As this is a copyrighted design, all I ask is that no posting of actual cut sizes and quantities be listed on this blog or in any post linked to this blog.

If you want to join the group, leave a post below.  If you have a blog with "no comments" selected, please leave your e-mail address so I can contact you.  After receiving your post, I will send you an invite to join this blog.  That way you can use this blog to post a link to your actual blog post so we can see your progress throughout the project.
You must have the book, as I'm not giving cutting or sewing directions.
The design is by Cathy Wierzbicki in a book titled, "Geometric Gems by That Patchwork Place."

I have pulled red fabrics to make this quilt but and started cutting 5 of the 15 red fabrics I plan to use. The pattern recommends using 12 fabrics but I added a few more in the mix as we scrap quilters tend to do. As soon as I pull my background fabrics, I'll post here, linking you to my blog.

Oh how you tempt me! This is a gorgeous quilt but first I need to finish some others. However I'll be watching intently.
