Pineapple Quilt, still a WIP
Finally, it's all together, but I still have to fasten down the triangular units in the semi border. After all the handling adding borders, all those seams need pressing AGAIN!
I LOVE how you can't tell where the quilt top ends and the border begins.
DH (below) thought the last border should have yet another triangle on the corner, but it would have to be very large to fit in with the style of those previous triangles. I thought it should not be there at all. I put that little rust swatch on the outer corner, not what he had envisioned. I don't like it there either but ... Opinions? I DO like the rust color though.
I may have to wait for a warm spring day to actually baste and quilt it, or else haul in the basting tables from the garage through all the danged SNOW!!!
The blocks are 6 inches finished - the quilt is about 62" x 72".
Now, suggestions needed - what kind of quilting?
