Well, the pineapple block soon became two and before I knew it, I had started another project.
I used the same layout as the free pattern but modified the width of the sashing pieces so that I could use some of the classic Ikea number fabric for the backing,
I free-motion quilted it using an all-over sharp stipple design (which I thought was a good match for the spikes on a pineapple) and bound it with a sunny yellow DS print.
I love how it turned out and can imagine myself making another one of these quilts in the future. I gifted this one to a friend who had admired it as I was making it.
