Quilt With Us

OK, I totally spaced the need to blog about the Pineapple Pin Cushion that Mari designed for me! I just love anything pineapple, and have many in a fun collection. The day Mari was making decisions on the pin cushions she was going to include in the Gifty Galore selection, I told her they were all great, but she needed to come up with a pineapple. By the end of the day, there was indeed a pineapple in the group! Then I got to test the pattern and have one for my very own. It goes together like a dream, and as you add the stitches and french knots, it just somehow sucks up the filler and makes it really tight and nice to stick pins into. Right now, it's on my desk and I use it as a paper weight too! Mine's the one on the left with the folded down leaf - I just dropped a dot of glue onto the pineapple and pinned it in place until the glue dried. The artist in me just can't make anything exactly as designed! It's a really fun project, and if you collect pin cushions (or pineapples), it's a MUST!

Love these pineapples, which aren't high on my list for having, but these are adorable. Love your added artistic touch too.
