    Pineapple Blocks

    I think I'm done with Pineapple blocks for awhile. Need to move on to something else. Since January I've made two throw quilts, four pillows covers, two table runners, two placemats, 12 mug rugs and two unfinished potholders, all made with Pineapple blocks. Some of them don't look like traditional blocks due to color placement variations and I'm not really sure I can technically call them "Pineapple" blocks, but they were all constructed the same way using Creative Grids Pineapple Trim Rulers . The 5 inch mug rugs were using a Bloc Loc pineapple ruler. Had a lot of fun making these. They are so much easier to make than they look. Name:  IMG_1915.jpg

    I think you got your pineapple fix, but they are all so lovely. I can't decide which I like better, the bold solids or the soft pastels. Good thing you are covered either way. Wondering what your next project will be.

    They are all beautiful. I have this ruler but haven't tried it yet but seeing yours makes me want to get it out and make something. Love the colours you chose. Thank you for sharing.

    They are all wonderful! I will have to try one�� Do you prefer one ruler over another?

    WOW! Those are all great. Were they pp? I made a bed runner using pp and it was easy but always wonder about colors together. Your choices make me want to do another.
