TaaaDahhh!


Here she is in all her glory!
Pineapple Crazy is officially a quilt top!
She still needs a good final pressing before quilting.
This has truly been a labor of love!
My friends have all contributed to my scrap baskets 
and that make this even more special.

If you've read my blog for any amount of time, 
you know Bonnie Hunter of Quiltville has had a huge influence on my quilting.
When she first posted pictures of these little 5" blocks, I was smitten.
I'm not sure if this is the first post but I believe it might be.
I knew that someday I would make this quilt.
Here is my first post about this quilt.


Yesterday was a funny Facebook day.
This showed up as one of my memories.
It was from one year ago.
How appropriate and almost scary.
But not really true because I never wanted to quit.

I never considered this to be a UFO even though I started it over 3 1/2 years ago.
It was always a work in progress.
I would pull it out and make a few blocks,
then put it away again.
All the while, saving itty bitty scraps.

Later today I am going to pull out the backing fabric.
I was going to piece a bunch of things together 
but this weighs a ton.
I think a nice one piece backing will be perfect. 

When you see her again,
She will be finished!

Congrats! on finishing the top of your Epic Pineapple quilt. While gorgeous, it's NOT one that I ever plan to tackle. TOO much paper piecing for me!!

Happy for your finish! The solid piece backing will be best. The seams will sink into the batting. :)

Absolutely stunning! I don't think that scale is quite right for me, but yours makes it oh so tempting.

Congratulations! What an amazing finish! Truly spectacular! A quilt like that should take a long time to complete. How many pieces?
