Pineapple hits the prairie

I mean prairie for realsy.. I started the pineapple blossom ummm 4 yrs ago,and was not really sure how I wanted to borders...So, I made the braid border to keep in case. I finally decided I wanted the quilt done and not sitting in a cabinet.

This is a close up of the braid
I am thinking of doing a braid across the backing of the quilt or some left over HST units made into pinwheels.
Thank you for visiting,happy stitching.

Hi Amy! That is gorgeus quilt! What a wonderful pattern - I don't think I have seen it before! Also I love the colours! We see so much sweet and bright colours that these 'earth' colours look so wonderful and 'calm' for a change!

Hey Girl, I know you are always on the move, I have been thinking of you lots...really praying for an RV to drop out of heaven so I can travel to areas where people need help with my treadle machine and quilt. Stop by for a chance to win a Blessing Bracelet and even if you do not wear them, I am sure you know someone who does! Hope all is well!

I am very happy to watch your finished work. It is such a awesome and impressive work for me. I never ordered fabrics on this shape.

Roberta said...

I love your fabrics for this quilt! You always do such nice work.

Giving a order to all fabric work is too hard for me and just now, only searching for right idea of it. A more and stylish look you give this fabric.
