Pineapple Quilt

I'm taking the time to share some finishes that were never shared on the blog -- like this pineapple quilt. I'd had this in my design notebook for years. I knew I wanted these colors, but couldn't decide on a construction method.


Creative Grids Mini Trim Tool to the rescue! I tried out four different pineapple rulers. They all worked, but this one was the most logical and simple for me.  I'm a huge proponent of finding the sewing method and tools that work best for each person.

I've already got another pineapple planned... even though this one is 3,600 pieces in a 48'' x 60'' quilt! The "logs" finish at 1/2'' wide.  It was densely quilted with an allover pattern called Melange by Patricia E. Ritter.



Finished size of the blocks is 6'' with an 8 x 10 layout. I've got a wall that measures 51'' and have really enjoyed making some quilts that just fit that space.

I apologize for my picture quality today, but you do what you gotta do -- I'm home by myself today (woo hoo!) and realized I really do need photo helpers. Thus, the quilt hanging on the garden shed door.  :)

P.S.: There is a Creative Grids pineapple tool that makes a much larger block, I just enjoy the little pieces. Happy Friday!

  1. Fabulous quilt. I dont usually love pineapple quilts, but I find to my taste because you have used the three colours only, but still scrappy....love scrappy! Great colour combo also, red and brown doesn't get enough of chance to shine.

  3. That looks great! I think your photography is fine. More artsy hanging on a shed door than held up. :-) Oh, and I agree on the "woo hoo" because of being home along for a while. lol
