The Ultimate Pineapple

The Ultimate Pineapple

Inspired by an elegant wool Pineapple quilt, circa 1890. The centers are all identical, with colors gradually moving out to darks, ending in large red corners. With so many skinny logs (3/8”), the color span is gradual and subtle, without a heavy stair-step effect. I pieced half and quarter blocks for the outer edges, to complete the black windmill patterns, and quilted both by hand and by machine. The string border is made with several different solid black fabrics…each with a slightly different cast.
