Pineapple Wall Hanging

Well I wanted to finish binding this and get it washed so it gets that old wrinkly look, but that could be a few more days so I broke down and took a picture of it before I had it washed. Doesn't it look great! I hope in the second picture you can see the quilting better. I still have to finish sewing the binding down on the back but something came up so I had to drop this to finish up the secret project I've been working on. Don't worry, I'll be able to share it with you soon.

Some of you asked if this is a pattern. Actually it is just one block from a Fig Tree Quilts pattern and then I added the border. Oh and I enlarged the pattern to make an 18" block. Once I get this done and to the shop I get to pick something new and fun to work on! I can't wait!

Your quilt is beautiful. Just enlarging the pattern and add borders can make a new quilt. Do you deliver this to the shop and then get a new pattern for free?? I looked at Fig tree quilts and found a lot of beautiful patterns. Have to study this link closer.

It looks wonderful. I always stand by the dryer waiting for the quilt to come out. There is just nothing like a freshly made quilt coming out of the dryer warm and wrinkly for the very first time *yummy*

This is such a beautiful quilt. Such a great idea to enlarge a single block!

The first thing that caught my eye on this quilt is the primitive looking border. And here you did this all on your own, I love it! I need that Fig Tree pattern!
