Forty-Two Pineapple Blocks on the Floor, Forty-two Pineapple Blocks

I added quick corners on the blocks - they seemed to be a bit too dark. The melon/green helps (IMHO) to coordinate the overabundance of fabrics. Adding the corners means 37 pieces per block. I'm liking it! My original border idea was to make Lazy Gal words in a wide border, but I'm rethinking - maybe something curvy, roundish would be better after all these sharp angles. Speak to me, quilt!

The top row, that is not all in the photo, is already sewn together - I couldn't wait to see what it looked like!

I did a little wall hanging for a challenge based on the song "99 Bottles of Beer on the Wall". Your post reminded me of that.

I love it, Elaine! The corners add just the right touch!! :)

I like what the new corners did for the blocks Elaine, you are right it really brings them together!

O.k. you are now officially buried in Pineapple blocks about as deeply as we are buried in snow here in the Northeast!

P.S. Catching up: Glad to see "Detours" got done despite trying your patience a bit.

I love Detours and I love Pineapples. I have wanted to do a pineapple. Just tried your laundry soap far so good. I love popping over and seeing what you are up to.
