Jill's green pineapple

Don't you just love it when a quilt turns out beyond your
expectations!!!

My mother loved green and our whole house was some
shade of green. So, of course, I wasn't very fond of green.
I am a blue person. When Jill's sister said she liked green
I groaned inwardly but I actually love this quilt.The pattern
is from Bonnie Hunter called Pineapple Blossom. I
made it without the sashing because I liked the star effect.

I had this all cut out before my retreat and pieced it and
put it together that weekend. I just finished the piano key
border this weekend.

I will DEFINITELY make another one of these in blues ,
or florals, or yellows & golds... Thanks Bonnie for the free pattern!!!

Until next time...
Susie

That is really beautiful. I was just thinking the other day that my green scrap tote is really full.

Love the quilt, I am not really a green person either. I look forward to seeing it in another shade.
