The finished pineapple quilt top measures 54″X72″, a good sized throw quilt.


Fabric requirements

Above are the fabric requirements as generated by EQ7. Let’s break it down:


Background fabric (Aqua): 2 yds (I’m rounding up as I don’t normally order 1 + 5/8th yds)

Pineapple leaves (Bright green): .5yd

Pineapple leaves (Dark green): 1yd

Pineapple eyes (Gold): 2yds

Pineapple body (Yellow): 2yds

*Note: these fabric requirements do not account for biding and backing*

With this quilt along, you’ll have the choice of either paper piecing (foundation paper piecing) the pineapple body blocks, or traditional piecing. Tutorial for the traditional pieced blocks will be posted in week 2. For those of you who may be anxious to get started, here is the Hugh Jass Pineapple Block. You’ll need to make a total of 20 blocks (20 sets of A & B sections).

LH butterfly


I was lucky enough to get to test out this awesome butterfly pattern for Quiet Play. I decided to make it for my Lizzy House swap partner. I love how it turned out :)


I don’t see to be getting emails when I receive comments anymore…annoying! I am so over all these glitches with the blog. Sigh.
