    Pineapple Wall Hanging

    Several months ago, I bought Gyleen X. Fitzgerald's book, Trash to Treasure Pineapple Quilts, and the accompanying pineapple ruler. It took me quite awhile before I attempted to make the blocks. Once I started, it was hard to stop. I was up way past my bedtime making this small wall hanging. I hand sewed the binding while sitting on the porch. It was sooooo relaxing! I call it "Peaceful Pineapples."

    I've sewn garments for 40 years, but I'm a relatively new quilter, but I'm liking it more and more!
    I sew, therefore, I am.

    Like your wall hanging. What size are the blocks, and what is a "pinapple ruler"

    I recently took a class from someone who took the class from Gyleen. Loved the project and making the blocks was addictive. The ruler made it foolproof. I'm using my many Christmas scraps. I bought the book, too. Lots of pineapple ideas & even some pineapple recipes.
    Unfortunately I have another project due in a couple of weeks so haven't been able to get back to my pineapple blocks. You did a nice job.

    I took a class from Gyleen last summer. I have a bunch of the squares made but haven't finished my quilt yet. She is an engineer and designed the ruler herself because she was upset with the rulers on the market. You can buy the ruler from her or from Newark Dressmaker Supply and probably other places too. She has a couple different books out and a website. She is a wonderful person very personable. Loved taking the class just the hear her talk about herself and her family. The quilting was nice too.
    Blessed are the quilters, for they are the piecemakers.

    www.colourfulstitches.com This is the website for Gyleen. It shows all her beautiful quilts there. It's amazing how different color placements make different designs.
