Well I counted out my Pineapple Crazy blocks. I’m just over half way finished with them. I found I was starting to run out of color variety.
I was especially short on oranges and greens….
But after I had them all replenished then I seemed to be short of other colors so I cut up fabric that was recently gifted to me and then headed into my own stash.
I think I’ll be able to sew quite awhile now without being short on anything. I am going to try to see how far I can get before I have to dig for more scraps. I already know that the next things I’ll need it white/neutrals. These little blocks take LOTS of them.
I’m doing really good so far this week. I’m hoping I’ll have my most blocks ever done in a week! Stop back on Monday and I’ll report back in so you can see if I broke my record.

One of these quilts was at the Paducah show yesterday. The comment I heard were “wow, that is a lot of pieces”. Had a triangle border on it.
Fun to use up all the small stuff. My Mother use to throw it away and I have been known to get into her garbage to retrieve scraps. LOL Chris
Love your pineapple blocks. I might try this pattern someday to use up scraps. I normally just make little 3″ finished 9-patches. Enjoy your posts. You are so fortunate to have your daughter close by.
Gosh I just love your mix of colors on these blocks–I am about to embark on my Big Pineapple journey soon and am deciding what color(s) to use….hugs, Julierose
What sizes do you cut your scraps for this? I want to make one but can’t seem to get started.
