Rainbow Pineapples of course!
This scrap quilt was my project last year for SoScrappy's 2012 Rainbow Scrap Challenge. Each month, Angela announced a color, and those of us participating made blocks from our scraps of that color. I used my crumbs. These little pineapples only finish at 3-3/4 inches!!! The entire quilt is only 21" square :*)
I made this quilt without a pattern after seeing a quilt on Pinterest that I loved.
It was made by Barbara Polston and she called hers Birds Fly Over the Rainbow.
Each month I made 2 blocks from the color of the month....see those little fussy-cut centers? *cute*
And I made a paper-piecing pattern for the tiny flying geese to go around the borders....
I have to say, I am pretty happy with the way it turned out!!!
This past week, I took the quilt top to retreat and quilted it with my little Bernina... mostly stitch-in-the-ditch, with a little FMQ feathering on the corners without flying geese. You can only see the feathers in bright light like this which washes out the color, but I was happy with them nonetheless.
......then I put the binding on yesterday ....all by machine.
This is my favorite block....♥♥♥
I love the secondary designs you get from Pineapple blocks, don't you?
