Monday meanderings...

I cannot believe that I did not sew one stitch last week....not until Saturday!  Had company, then I had strep throat and was on the sofa for the rest of the week.  But I did get a little crochet blanket done for Project Linus, and some hand applique...so I feel a tiny bit productive! and I used up scrap yarn!



I'm working on my Island Batik November challenge and I thought I was working on my December challenge when I first started piecing these blocks using the Alpine Jingle fabric Island Batik sent to me.


 My pineapple blocks are made with 1 1/2" strips, the center square is 2 1/2" with a 3 1/2" square flipped on the corners.  I LOVE using Gyleen Fitzgeralds Pineapple Tool...so easy!


Then I decided to make some wonky improv trees using my left overs.  Once I got them made, I did like the idea of making a quilt, but then I thought...what if?  And tried the blocks out as a border around the pineapple quilt.  I like it! (except now I need an idea for my December challenge)

Hopefully I get this completed this afternoon and start quilting it!  What's on your Monday afternoon agenda?

A view of my back yard....we are having the most amazing display of color here in Missouri this year.  Hope you are enjoying some beautiful fall weather!
