    Share your Pineapple Quilts

    I was so excited to hear so many of us have the pineapple trim tool from creative grids, here are my pineapple quilts I have made plus another that is pineapple but not make with the grid. I would love to see everyone elses pineapple quilts as I am sooo addicted to the tool. I have started my 4th pineapple quilt while we are rving in Gladstone Michigan in the UP.

    Donna, they are fabulous!!! Isn't that tool the greatest! I love mine. However, I don't have anything finished to show you but I will...........
    That tool makes them failproof.

    Congratulations on your well-deserved ribbons!

    I do not have the grid tool but I have a ruler and book from two other companies plus I have paper piecing but the only pineapples I have ever made are the realistic looking ones. Your quilts might just inspire me to try those rulers. I already looked at them again and put them on the shelf. I will probably not get to it for some time as I have way to many UFOs.

    Beautiful quilts Donna and isn't it amazing how the quilts look so different with different fabrics and the same pattern. All of your quilts are so nicely made. Congratulations on your ribbons and thank you so much for sharing your wonderful workmanship. I am getting so anxious to get my CG pineapple ruler out but have a couple of other projects in the works right now.

    Lovely projects, I really liked the pineapples made from squares!

    I've only made one pineapple quilt and that was back in the days of camera film so while I have a picture, not one I can share It was non-scrappy with a waterlily fabric and green.

    Always meant to do another.

    Your quilts are beautiful, congratulations on your ribbons. Personally I don’t buy specialty rulers and such but I have made a pineapple quilt and posted the start of it but for whatever reason it’s not included in the link that Nan posted? I made mine following Eleanor Burns technique it was very easy I thought.

    Your quilts are beautiful, Donna. Here is the only pineapple quilt I have made, obviously not one made with the tool.

    Love your first pineapple quilt with the news print background. I'm making one similar to it right now but have used a red-ish background and yellow/dk golden pineapples. Still putting it together, but will be finished within a week.

    This was a king size Pineapple quilt I made close to 30 years ago. It was one of my Aunts favorite quilts ever!

    Some of my pineapple blocks in various stages of completion. They were made using Creative Grids rulers. The small 4 inch blocks were made using a Bloc Loc ruler. Most of the small ones were made using tiny scraps leftover from other projects. The Pineapple Block is my favorite block, and I sometimes have to force myself to use something other than Pineapple blocks when starting a new project.Name:  IMG_20190420_073342.jpg

    Gorgeous and congratulations on your ribbons! I just saw a tutorial on MSQ using the tool. I may have to purchase it.

    I have both the large and small creative grids rulers. I have a pattern picked out with the fabric needed but haven't had the time to start. All the quilts shown are so beautiful, I especial love the table runner and coasters.

    All of your work is so beautiful Janjanq. I especially love the gold/brown/beige one but those are my favorite colors so I was really drawn to that one. I think I have most of those fabrics in my stash so I may have to go digging. Thank you so much for sharing your pics of the wonderful work you do. Your yellow/green quilt is so pretty to and so springy.

    I have the tool but haven't started the quilt yet. I absolutely love the first quilt that is made with squares.

    I made this baby quilt from scraps after taking an on line class by Gyleen Fitzgerald.
