Pineapple Quilt Top is Finished

 I did not expect to finish this quilt top before the end of 2022,
but here we are!!
I spent a good part of yesterday in my Hidey Hole and came out with this
finished top and I love it.
Two years ago I made a few blocks and thought I would
make a wall hanging or small throw.
My husband saw it and said it would look great on our bed.
From then on I've said this is the quilt he is making me make.

Half of the rows had been sewn together a while ago
and the other half were hanging out on my design wall.
Yesterday I just sewed and listened to my book and got it finished.

I was going to add a border to the quilt,
but it doesn't need one.
It's large enough without it and, visually,
the quilt is good without one.

This quilt was a couple of years in the making,
with it not seeing any action for large chunks of time.
I finished the rest of the blocks at quilt camp in November.

This will be sent off to Rebecca Grace to quilt
and will then grace the bed.
The fabric on the pillows will be used for binding
and I may make some pillows with it.
In addition to this fabric, I'd add some lighter blue or aqua pillows.

Not a bad way to finish 2022!!
I'm linking to Design Wall Monday.

Happy Quilting!


  1. Beautiful. Definitely worth listening to your slave driver.

  2. Wow that is so striking and looks terrific on the bed.

  3. Absolutely gorgeous! Love the colors.

  4. It was the perfect project to get to flimsy stage, I think I hear your sigh of relief that it is ready for the quilter! Just stunning!

  5. It was worth the wait! It's going to be beautiful on your bed and I love the batik stripe for the binding and some pillows.

  6. That turned out beautifully. I love the fabric for the pillows too. Looking forward to seeing it all quilted, as I know you are too.

  7. Oh, I love the colors. And I love the pattern. I know that Rebecca will do a beautiful job on the quilting. Hooray!

  8. Wonderful quilt. I LOVE how big you made it too. And the colors --- it would go great in my bedroom too! I'm looking forward to see what Rebecca Grace does with it. Terrific job so far.

  9. Your pineapple quilt top is gorgeous! Congratulations on persevering with it. Those are my favorite colors!

  10. It turned out stunning. It's no wonder your husband wanted a bed quilt out of those blocks.

  11. Your quilt is beautiful! I have 75 10 inch pineapple quilt blocks finished and now thinking about sashing to make it bigger.
