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.

I'm glad you are enjoying both of your hobbies  so much.  It's too bad all those nasty household chores get in the way.  Is your bum arm still causing as much trouble or is it getting a bit better?

I love the colors of your quilt!  How big is it?

I love just red and white quilts and have seen such pretty ones on Pintrest.  Since I have a healthy sized tub of reds and plenty of white or white with a bit of red, I have been busy whittling down the reds and trying new patterns.  Somehow I have accumulated a lot of red--I could be at this for a while.
