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!
