Scrap Happy


My scrappy pineapple quilt is all done.....


I used up almost all of my purple, pink and teal scraps.  The white is some plain sheeting I had in my stash....


I purchased a special ruler which helped a lot with trimming to keep the shape...


Mostly in the ditch quilting so as not to detract from the piecing....  I even had some pink binding in my 'scrap binding' box.....


I had to do a bit of piecing for the backing.. that was also made from leftovers from a previous quilt...

Now I'm keen to get into my red and cream scraps for another one.....


I finished off my Bondi top... they don't take too long at all really ....


.. there is a small pleat at the back which helps with the fit... I was pleased with myself for getting it meeting so well!!!


The weather has cooled and my new tops are not being worn... this one fits much better round the neck so I have made pattern adjustments to do some more later

Another embroidery for Wish You Well is done... lovely sayings in each block...


We do need more kindness in our world I think... I try... but I admit I do struggle sometimes...  

I hope you have a lovely day and that someone is kind to you .....

Well done on the pleat! I once made a tartan skirt with inset pleats, and much to my surprise it turned out very well with the tartan matching where it should. Your pineapple quilt is cheerful and fun.

How lovely to see your pineapple quilt finished . It is looking great with the pink binding. I agree with the quilting - it didn't need that to take over. Perfect.
Your top is also lovely and I am impressed with the pattern matching.
That is a sweet embroidery block. Love your work!
