Pineapple Quilt Parade

Hello and happy June! Today I have a very summery treat for you...a pineapple parade! My summery pineapple quilt was so much fun...and now after seeing some of the ideas in today's parade, I might have to make another pineapple project or two!


Pineapples are considered a symbol of hospitality, and what better way to say 

welcome than with a pineapple quilt project?!  My pineapple mini quilt is in my sewing room, but I think it would be fun to have one somewhere else in the house, too!



 I just might have to make another this size!



And hang it on a cute little hanger like Brenda did...I love her idea! (FYI...Brenda is going to write a little bit about the symbolism of the pineapple on her blog post today).



 This is Amanda's first time participating in our parade...thanks so much for sending this in, Amanda!


 And this fun pineapple (with a real pineapple in the photo) is by Hildy...but Hildy has a second pineapple project...her mini is reversible...


 and look at the sweet hearts she put inside the pineapples. Now I might have to go and do this too!  Be sure to visit Michele's blog to see some more fun pineapple project ideas!

Michele and I decided to continue on with the summer theme for next month's parade...make anything with flowers, fruits, popsicles, beach balls, or red, white, and blue! We can't wait to see what you make!  Send your photos to Michele or I by June 30th to be included in the parade!

Thanks so much for stopping by!
