Pineapple Table Runner

I finished up the scrappy Pineapple block table runner this week -


It is 16"x28, with 4" blocks. I used a Marti Michell Pineapple ruler set for these blocks (with 1/2" finished strips). It was very easy to cut out, and enjoyable to sew.


Simple all over meander free motion quilting (because it is my favourite to stitch). I used 2 layers of cotton batting, and regular Aurifil thread for the quilting.


This is last week's block for the Temecula Quilt Company 1880 Sampler sew along (also a 4" block).

I also finished knitting a little neck warmer -


Using yarn that I recently spun. The pattern is Vitis by Liza Mutch. More detail can be found on my Ravelry project page.


I finished spinning four more skeins of yarn from the fleece I was given last fall.


I have spun 335g, and over 1000m of yarn so far. I probably have about 200g of fibre left to comb and spin (plus a couple more fleeces outside, frozen in a shed waiting for spring so I can get them ready for spinning). I plan on dyeing the skeins different colours to crochet into a 'scrappy' Granny Stripes blanket (at least that is the plan this week!).

All the best!♥︎

Your runner is so beautiful, but then, everything you make looks so good. Your spinning and knitting fascinate me. Thank you for sharing your beautiful work!

I love how you refer to that beautiful shawl as a "little neck warmer". LOL!
Your Pineapple table runner is very pretty.

I'm always so impressed with all that you do. That pineapple runner is now on my list. It's beautiful. I too like that shawl. I just recently got that pattern from Ravelry, but need to buy yarn. I love your take on it with the points, I would have never thought to do that. Keep on stitching!
