Well, that makes sense.

I think that the closer hubby gets to retirement and Social Security, the more "conservationist" I get when it comes to fabric.

Can you put a narrow sashing between the blocks?

I have 29 blocks finished as of this morning for my Pineapple Quilt using my Accuquilt system. I know that some of my blocks are going to be off even though they all measure a nice 10 1/2". I will be making it a bit larger I want it to be 42 blocks so it will be 60x70 at least plus a border. I want a full size quilt. So I have a ways to go. I don't expect it to be perfect because of the nature of the beast and this thread just affirms what I thought. Just a smidgen off.

I like the idea of a sashing between each block. Will make your quilt a bit bigger, will make each block stand out and cheer.

I made a pineapple quilt with the creative grid ruler. Itís been awhile. Seems like it was 36 blocks. 6 down and 6 over. Itís a good sized quilt so the blocks were probably 12Ē. I would trim the bigger blocks and add a strip if itís too small. Thatís kind of how I quilt. You would have to look really close on the finished quilt to see any mistakes.

Default Strip Apple Pineapple by Cozy Quilt Designs


My daughter is a new quilter and has picked this pattern for us to make together. Iíve never done a pineapple quilt because the waste bothers me, but this one uses big pieces so the cut offs are big enough to do something with. Donna Jordan made 3 throw pillows with her cut offs. And the sashing means no matching points.👍🏻
