Pineapple Meets Snowman

 With a title like that you must be wondering what in the world I am talking about!!  I used the Creative Grids Pineapple ruler to make snowmen blocks.  I used the small ruler and 1.5" strips of scraps to make both the head and body.  The tails of the scarf are appliqued on after quilting. 

They are a little time consuming but fun at the same time.  As always, it feels great to use some scraps in a project no matter how big or small it is.

Since the gray reads as a solid I dressed up the outer border with some fancy quilting. The red striped skinny border is pretty as is so it didn't need any quilting;)  

More scraps were used in making a fun backing for it.  I finished it off with a matching gray binding.

Did you all see that Sarah of Confessions Of A Fabric Addict is hosting the 12 Days of Christmas Blog Hop again this month.  I believe she is still looking for participants.  I almost missed signing up as I didn't see the original post about it.  But when I saw her mention it again in Monday's post I messaged her and she said not many had signed up yet.  So I jumped in!!

A little housekeeping now, to let you know that if you had in the past signed up for receiving email notices of my blog posts, I have moved all email addresses over to  I hope you are receiving them now. I do not know what they look like but have heard there may be some advertising on them.  I have no control over this, sorry.  If you wish to leave me a comment you need to come directly to my blog to do that, do not hit reply to the as I will not receive it, it will only go into unknown territory!  And I do love reading your comments and try to respond to each one.  If you are new here and wish to follow me there is a sign up box at the top right side bar.  

Hope you are all having a great week!

  1. Cute snowmen, and a great way to add interest to the white! Your quilting always adds so much to those tablerunners, too. I haven't noticed much advertising in the blogs I get from It's possible that it's there, but it's not bothersome!

  2. Hello There! What a cute table runner. I do so love snowmen! What a smart idea to add the scarf after quilting! Thank you for sharing!

  3. Ha!...this pineapple snowman is so cute. His head is perfect for adding a top hat. I would never thought of using gray but it looks great with the white snowmen and that great striped inside border.

  4. Hi Vicki! I did get your post title in an email today. It takes some getting used to, that's for sure. It's a summary that lists just a few of the blogs that have posted. I suspect if you don't click on the summary link, you would miss posts that aren't shown. Anyway - Follow It is working and I didn't notice any ads at all! Good job. This is a different take on a snowman. I love all the different fabric choices you made, and of course, the end result is just lovely. Great job! ~smile~ Roseanne
