On my design wall

The pineapple is now a finished top. I know there was a group of you that didn’t think this quilt needed borders and while I love quilts without, this one said from the beginning it wanted one.

The pinks are photographing rather “hot” but as usual working at night has its challenges when it comes to photographing the results.

    I wasn’t sure I liked the pink, purple combo when you started this one but the end result is stunning! Never ceases to amaze me how quickly you put quilt tops together. No chance yet to get the latest edition of “QUILTY’ but I am hoping tomorrow. I’m happy for you!

    I love your quilt! Those were my favorite colors growing up! I wanted a purple car with a hot pink interior, lol. (no I never got one)

    Hi Mary. I have been following this quilt since its birth and I adore the finished top. I particularly like the way the pink inner border extends into the outer one. For sure I am going to make one of these. Marilyn

    Wow, that looks stunning! I love the pineapple block, but it strikes me as very fiddly. Is there a quick way of making it?

    I love the borders… they ‘corral’ the pink! LOL Some young girl will love it!

    This turned out PERFECTLY with the borders. I just love the bright/bold look of this top! Well done, Mary!

    Mary – that looks super all put together. Borders really make the center blocks pop! Great job! Jenn

    Mary, I really like your choice for border. Do you have any special tip for your method in lining up your “extended sashing” style inner border? You always do such a great job with your quilts!

    Yum! It is beautiful! But then, I love purple and pink together, purple and yellow, purple and orange…….

    I really like this quilt! The purple drew me in but the pink is ok too. I love the borders and the way it all works together. Great job! K-

    Wow stunning. The border lifts the top onto another level. It would make a great quilt for the “Red Hat Society”. Beautiful work Mary well done.

    I’m with Ann – I wasn’t loving the pink and purple pineapple blocks until the border was put on. Now I think it looks great.
    I’m doing a set of multicolor pineapple blocks myself, but I changed the dimensions and it’s taking me longer than if I had just done the standard size. Oh well, maybe a lesson learned?
