    Pineapple Quilt Top

    I finished the Pineapple quilt top except for the borders. I am waiting for fabric from MSQC. I am going to put a yellow thin border and a purple (my favorite color) outer border. The blocks didn't match up well. I don't know what I did wrong because I used the Pineapple Tool by Creative Grids. I think I must have squared them up wrong, but it looks OK, just a bit sloppy.

    It looks like the pictures are a bit out of focus, but I think it's the top itself that makes one's eyes cross.

    Except for the dark purple and the white, I used the fabric I hand dyed.

              Now there's a scrappy quilt that really works. Nice job, Joyce! I love your dyed fabrics.

                  It went together great! Your fabrics work well in this pattern, now you just need to make more for something else.

                      Wow! This is fantastic! You should be very proud of yourself.

                      I'd love to know what method you used to dye your fabrics. I'm interested in trying it. Yours are so beautiful.

                          Joyce, this turned out just beautiful! What fabric did you use for your basic fabric that you dyed? How are you going to quilt it?

                              I either used cotton white fabric that I first washed to get the sizing out, or unbleached muslin. I usually just meander for quilting.
