Today I am sharing my Pineapple quilt just in time for summer picnics :) I started this quilt almost a year ago at a retreat with friends and finished it shortly after. It has sat patiently waiting for it’s photo shoot since then..lol.
With Summer just around the corner it seemed like a good time to share this bright and happy summery quilt.
This pineapple quilt pattern is from Jackie Padesky. Find her on instagram.
I used mostly VandCo fabrics for this quilt. They are the perfect shades of yellow and greens for the pineapples. This really is a fun pattern to put together. The quilting is a free motion stippling pattern. I’m still in the free motion practicing stage but it’s coming along! Free motion quilting really is fun! You just have to give yourself a lot of grace starting out.
I was so excited about this backing! This cotton and steel pink gingham makes for the cutest backing and really makes it look like a summer picnic quilt. I used the left over backing pieces I cut off for the binding.
