Pineapple Fun {Mini Quilt}

"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.

Quilt Stats:
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.

  3. I love this mini. What a great gift idea. Your matchstick quilting is extra cute with the four colors. I'm going to have to give that a try--I get a little bored with it but leaving space for other colors and then adding them in would have to be fun. Expect to see more pineapple minis around now that you've shown this one. (I'd steal it, if only I could be in the swap!)

  4. I liked the arrows for their help in organizing your notes.
