Quilt of the Week - Welcome Home

The pineapple is the universal symbol of hospitality and welcome and it makes a great quilt! The most fun thing about pineapple quilts is choosing the fabric. If you look at a real pineapple you can see it is actually a bunch of squares set on point. To make your pineapple block, look for checked fabric and cut it on the bias to get the same effect:

I made this quilt quite a while ago, it's definitely before I discovered modern quilting. I still love the rich "homey" colors of the earth tones, black and red.

Although there isn't a pattern for this quilt, I designed this pineapple block for one of the Quiltmaker's 100 Blocks issue. Maybe 2007-2009. I can't remember. (That's why we label quilts, although I'm not so good at taking my own advice!)
