Pineapple Quilt Finish

Hello and happy Wednesday! I had a bit of happy mail yesterday...my pineapple quilt returned home from the quilter! Of course I had to take some pictures right away!


Although I'm not a fan of our excessive heat, I am a fan of the lazy days of


summer, and this quilt has me thinking I'm pretty happy it's just around the corner! I love the diagonal plaid quilting that my friend Kaitlyn of Knot and Thread Design used on this...it really adds a lot of texture to the pineapples!



And I used this Kate Spain Horizons print I've been saving for a few years for the back of a summer quilt.  It's a happy print that will look great with the green binding I'm going to put on this.



This is one of my favorite blocks...sigh...



I'm really glad I did scrappy low-volume backgrounds as well...they add much more than a simple white or cream background might have added to the overall effect. I'm finishing a couple more market projects and then will get to binding this--will share one more photo then!

You can read more about this quilt here ( with a link to the free PDF pattern included at the end of the post)

Finally...all patterns and books (PDF and paper) are on sale for 25% off in my Etsy shop through Saturday with the code pineapple! 

Thanks so much for stopping by!

I'm loving your pineapple quilt! The quilting pattern you chose compliments the pineapples perfectly. The fabric you used for the back is such a great compliment to cool down those hot yellows. It makes you want to wrap up and snuggle with it!

Your quilt looks wonderful

what a beauty nd the quilting works s well looks like there would have been loads of ends to sew in so much stopping and starting for the short lines but so worth it

Such a pretty quilt. I love all those yellows in the pineapples. I agree love the scrappy background - it does a lot for the quilt. As does the quilting, it
is really perfect.

I have started to collect yellow fabric, so that i can make a pineapple quilt, it reminds me of living in Asia
