Thread: A Wonky-Cornered Pineapple (NO PP, NO Pattern, NO Matching!)

    I wanted to see if it would work and I just love it so far!! My third block produced the right size and look I wanted. So I went for it! I took the emphasis off the block entirely by focusing on the corner treatment. I wanted that 'framed' look of the corners and love it not matching there. In fact, it'll be a little wonky looking when I get done. I was amazed how well it really lined up without PP it. Each block only took 23 min. ea. and that included the measuring/cutting! I got the whole thing together in 2 weeks. The centers are 49 shades of red and anything else grabbed from the scraps went into the block although I limited the use of red in the block somewhat. It's a sew-measure-cut process and the block has unlimited possibilities because of the colors you use. I just love this block! It's so versatile. I'll be adding 2 more rows to it to make it longer. Hope you enjoy my No Match Pineapple! :-D :-D

    Yes, we all have a gazillion scraps! Someone has asked already that I do a tute so I'll show 2 ways to do this block. I thought of another way for those who aren't confident with 'eyeballing' it so will be anxious to teach that too! Experienced or inexperienced, I'll show how to do it look lined up but with wonky corners. It's a stress-reliever for sure!

    Thanks everyone for your really nice comments! Be on the lookout for my tute!

    ;-) ;)

    Thank you, deebee! When I get done with it, ANYONE will be able to do it!! We all need a break from being match-perfect all the time! I discovered lots of things doing this. Mainly, the only part needing matching were the last two rows and who in the world would want to PP just the last two rows of anything? So it was simply time to "go wonky." That's what made it fun! It'll be easy as pie and fast too! I haven't been able to work on it for the last two weeks for other quilt projects so I'm looking forward to getting back to it and doing that tute for ya!!

    :-D

    Thank you, redquilter!! I wanted the corners to all have 'sherbert type' colors!! Must've been hungry for sherbert when I did that!! Those similar colors for the corners unify the whole quilt! Time to get sherbert colors out!!

    :-D ;-)

    n2scraplvr,

    W.O.W.! This pineapple quilt top is beautiful. And no paper piecing. Well, you are a quilting genius to have come up with this lovely quilt on your own. Thanks for letting all of quilters admire your work.

    If you do a tutorial, that is the only way I would ever do a pineapple quilt.

    Just sign me,
    Hopeful
