Pineapple quilt

I'm linking up with the 2018 finish-along and sharing another finish from my quarter 1 list of proposed finishes - my pineapple quilt. After playing with some yellow prints last year for a bee block, I thought I'd scratch an itch I had to make a pineapple block. I used the free pattern by Jackie Padesky found here.

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.

The lake at the Said with Love quilt barn turned out to be the perfect place for a quilts in the wild photo shoot.

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.



  1. This is a great finish. Your photo by the lake is perfect. Lovely work with the quilting, too.

  2. Wow - what a gorgeous picture by the pond! This is a nice quilt - love the sunshine in it, you can almost taste fresh pineapple on your tongue. :) Perfect quilting choice.

  3. What a beautiful finish - fantastic photo, I agree. On behalf of the 2018 Finish A Long global hosts, thanks for participating!
