Pineapple Pizzazz

I was asked about the backing of this quilt, so here it is.

This quilt is called Pineapple Pizzazz. The pattern came out about 3 years ago in a quilting magazine. Last year the pattern was published in a book called Positively Pineapple by Lynda Milligan and Nancy Smith. I had some leftover hsts from the front and I just decided to "make a back quilt". So here it is. It took me almost a year to get this thing finished. There are about 1500 pieces in the front. Cindy has this also, but I don't think she ever really got into it and went on to other projects.

None of the hsts are paper pieced, since that is one of those things I do not like to do. And the little ones are only 1 1/2 inches square.

This is amazing. I made a pineapple quilt a number of years ago and they are beautiful but a lot of work. Congrats on the finish.

Thanks for posting the back - you said it was garish? I beg to differ, my dear. What a beautiful quilt. Wow, looks like a LOT of work, both front and back!

Oh wow, I am totally reminded of the best pineapple I've had in years just the other day--Maui Gold. Thanks for bringing up that memory! ;)

Oh my goodness, this pineapple quilt is incredibly beautiful! So much work! I absolutely love the border treatment. The black goes so well with the red, and I would never have thought of it.
