The quilt I am sharing with you today was finished last month. It is from Bonnie Hunter's Pineapple Blossom pattern, finished with a piano key border. I made this one big at 90" square.
What inspired me? I was collecting fabrics to make a scrappy bargello. After I cut the strips and put a block together, I hated it. I had too many darks and not enough neutrals. I noticed the Pineapple Blossom pattern on Bonnie Hunter's website and loved it! It took me a year before I started, but it was totally worth the wait. The added benefit was that I already had 2" strips ready to go! This is also the first large quilt I machine quilted on my new Viking Sapphire 875. Working with a large throat space made it so easy.
Here are some more closeups.
Here is the back of the Pineapple Quilt. I tend to pick larger leftover pieces and then freepiece it into a quilt back. I rarely use wide backs or large bits of yardage. It keeps space open in my stash for new things!
