My Pineapple quilt is all quilted

Mary Flynn of Quilt Hollow  (http://www.quilthollow.com/)
has mailed me photos of the finished Pineapple quilt. It is so beautiful. She did feathers for me! WHOOO HOOO! I cannot wait to get it back home and bind it with love!
This quilt was inspired by Bonnie Hunter's Pineapple blocks she has been working on for some time.
The blocks are 5" finished. Each block has 45 pieces. I paper pieced this. Whewww!!!!!!! The circle effect was acheived by having one dark leg instead of 4 light legs in the block. I added an image at the end of this post of the block from BlockBase.




My words are not enough to express how pleased I am with the results.
Thanks Mary!!!!!!!!
N008 is the block # from BlockBase

WOW!! Gorgeous quilt. That must be a very heavy quilt. You must be dying to see it and touch it and snuggle under it.

Your quilt is so pretty. Mary did a beautiful job on the quilting. A pineapple quilt is on my to do list, for someday. Trying to do the UFOs before I start anything else.

I love pineapple quilts, but I am not too sure on making this one, 45 pieces in a 5 inch block, paper pieced?!!! WOW! You have more patience than me, and everyone tells me I am a very patient person.

The quilting looks fabulous. I love that quilt. It looked great on the design wall, and it looks even better quilted.
Cheers,

Suebee your pineapple quilt is absolutely gorgeous!! love it, love it, love it!! You might remember me. I emailed you about the pattern a couple months ago. Well its taken this long to find someone that had 'block base' lol ...I've had to make a deal with myself to hold off on it. I have way to many tops started and need to finish at least 1 of them. I decided the RRCB had to be 1st. I'm getting really close! Blessings to u my 'quilty' friend.
