She caught on to this much more readily than I did when I began making them, and went home armed with paper foundations and scraps to make more!
Remember that I made a bunch of these for my Mom's birthday in February. Each one is made from the scraps of a quilt she has made. So Mom can't bear to put her little pineapples away until Christmas, and until she decides how to display them, they are all lined up on the book holder on her piano. It is fun to walk in the door and see them all in a row.
My little year-round sewing room tree is filling up again as I try to make a pineapple or two every month. The latest ones that I just finished today are from Primitive Gatherings Old Glory line, since I have those scraps handy while working on the Picnic Quilt.
I've also got the ornament I received from Grace on the tree. Don't want to hide it away for most of the year. : )
Enough about pineapples. I know you are really here to see who won my 2 year blogging anniversary giveaway. The winner was drawn yesterday and notified, I just didn't have the energy to post it--we had planted our garden last night during a stiff wind
Sandi (kwiltnkats blog) was the Grand Prize winner. She is a prolific quilter and always keeps me in awe of how quickly she produces amazing quilt tops! Go look at this recent creation here.
When I realized that my last post was #150, I decided that deserved a little celebration, too, so I drew another name to receive a bag of soap and a mini charm pack of Sandy Gervais' Posh Pumpkins line. (She always designs such great fall fabrics.)
Doniene (Now It's Just Quilts blog) is the winner of the "150th Post" giveaway (that no one knew was happening). Doniene is a hard working ranch wife who also makes beautiful quilts for loved ones with careful thought behind them. She has been teaching herself FMQ and I am floored by how well she has done.
Congrats to both ladies--your prizes are in the mail. Thanks, everyone, for celebrating my 2nd anniversary of blogging with me.
I am keeping this short. I have had very little sewing time this week and I intend to make up for it tonight! : )
Until next time,
