I think I'm feeling the heat from this quilt already.

That quilt is going to look awesome Judy.  And quite Hot.

Doing a pineapple quilt is on my wish list, but it keeps moving down the list as easier projects pop up.  I look forward to seeing your quilt Mishii.

Here’s one that I recently made.  Just needs its label and then into the case for when I go to New Zealand in May for the foster kiddies.

Mishii, you are a big tease!!   I was expecting a photo of a smushed pineapple NOW, not later after you get all 573843 border strips put together.  I could die of old age by then .....

I really don't like wasting hours of work so I figure non quilting people won't know that it really isn't supposed to look like that.  I'm going with the story that my pineapples fell off the truck....slightly flattened, a little bruised, some badly mangled, but still fun.

Geez, you're hysterical.  :-)   Since I am MUCH YOUNGER than Judy in Ohio, I can afford to wait ever-so-patiently for the promised photo. :-)

Every time I look at a pineapple quilt, my eyeballs go bonkers.  The pattern just seems to jangle my nerves no matter if it's a planned color scheme or scrappy, so it is nowhere on my list of quilts to make.  Lordy knows I have enough on that list already.  The lack of a pineapple quilt isn't going to be a big hole. 

I was sitting next to Colene at that retreat and just loved that quilt. She did have a special ruler and it looked like it really made those blocks easy to do.

That is a beautiful quilt!

Thanks Ami.  It did take me a while to get my head around the cutting, sewing, re-cutting, re-sewing and then cutting again and then sewing it together to make sub-units.  The instructions threw me a bit but did finally get the hang of it.  Quite a few mistakes in there, but as it is so busy, it’s not really noticeable.

Thanks Judy.  I now have my son’s girlfriend giving it a try.  Her colour scheme is pinks, greys and a spot of cream.  Should look good when done.
