The Pineapple Quilt

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

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.  Here is a direct link to the tutorial.

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.
