"Be a pineapple.
Stand tall, wear a crown, and be sweet on the inside."
This year, the Salt Lake Modern Quilt Guild decided that they wanted to do a mini swap again. Last year, I didn't have one and it was so fun to watch everyone open and then steal away minis from each other, white elephant style.
This year, I decided I wanted to do something fun like the pineapple quilts I have been seeing around lately. I confess, I saw just saw a block on line, quickly did some quilt math, and pieced the top with 2.5" inch unfinished squares and HSTs from fabric that I scrounged from my scrap bins.
I then added matchstick quilting.
I loooooove matchstick quilting on minis and throw pillows.
I had a lot of questions on Instagram when I posted the photo in progress.
I used four different colors, white, light yellow, dark yellow, and a green in 50wt Gutermann using varying widths and varying stitch lengths (generally 3.0-4.5). I have had so many questions about it that I will be making a video very soon to share. Stay tuned!!!
The backing was a fun green print I have had in my stash for quite awhile.
I had some fun with the binding and added a bit of black and white with the yellow to frame it.
I added a printed computer label and then just used Heat n Bond to secure it to the back since it was a mini wall hanging.
Measures: approx. 12.5" x 19"
Pattern: Pineapple Block
Fabrics: various yellows and green from stash, Kona White
Quilted: 50 wt Gutermann on Babylock Symphony
I had a great time and so glad to be able to participate this year.
