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.

We are definitely need to see a pic of that one!!
It's been seven months now since the surgery on my broken left arm so I'm resigned to the fact that the arm is never going to be "normal" again. It is no longer painful, it's just swollen, achey and it does not work right, something DH says I have to get used to.
At this point this right-handed person is grateful that it wasn't my right arm that was injured.
