    I designed the large pineapple quilt - except for the appliqued borders - for my guild's 2005 quilt show. I liked it so much, I made a mini for myself (w/out the flowered borders). One day I might even quilt it! lol

    This was our 2005 Opportunity Quilt

    Oh, my! That is stunning! I love the border on the third photo, is that embroidered or a print or what?

    The quilt(s) are beautiful!

    Am I right in thinking the first two quilts are your mini version? Edited to add, I should really read the description...it says the 1st two a mini versions.

    I love your quilts. Pineapple blocks are so interesting. When you look at them a bit, they start to look like an optical illusion and appear to move. Very cool!

    I think you can make one with pipes/PVC pipe and a laundry cart base with castors. If they sell those quilt displays, I bet they are expensive!

    Give your hubby something to do!

    And you can get shower curtain or drapery rings with clips on them to hang it from.

    What a stunning quilt!!!!! The pineapple block is probably one of my all-time favorites and your quilt would look amazing on my bed. I'm up for adoption. :lol:

    Not my husband--give him a some "bookkeeping " to do or a golf club to swing but not any tools.LOL Maybe I can get my son to do it for me--he took after his granddaddy. It is a joke in our family --the childrens say"don't let Daddy have any tools." LOL I love him bunches but he is not a handy man.

    I actually bought 2 of the quilt display stands for my guild on ebay! They're called "Savage Port-A-Stand Quilt Display Rack", and they were $139 each, plus shipping. We got fast service & had no problems, and they come with a carrying bag too. :D

    The borders were designed & hand appliqued by another of our guild members, Jessie. She used the fabric we had left after we made kits for all of the pineapple blocks. It is gorgeous, isn't it?

    I have to say, I bought more tickets on this quilt than I have on any other Op Quilt....but a non-guild member won it in the end. :cry:
    The pineapple blocks in the big quilt are 8" blocks (so they would fit on regular copy paper!), and the mini quilt has 4" blocks.
