In my many career incarnations (I am a restless soul when it comes to occupation) I once worked in the travel industry. I worked for a Hawaiian tour company. Ever since I have had a love of Pineapple motifs. Whenever I see a pineapple it gives me a feeling of welcome it is a symbol of hospitality. So the trend with pineapples that is showing up now is really up my alley and I have been wanting to make a pineapple quilt. I was planning on using the yellows and greens from my Liberty stash to make a mini quilt and I think I still might but more as a piece of art to put in a frame. I thought it would also be fun to make a multi colored pineapple quilt. I sat down the other day and started playing around using Paintbox Basics and came up with this:
I have created kits,one of the kits can be paid for in 4 payments and you can get a row at a time. I thought it would make the cost easier for those that have a limited monthly budget. This is a super simple pattern and quilt but I love the way the colors blend together in a rainbow wash.
You can find the tutorials here: (if you downloaded these first thing this morning, redo them, I made changes)
Ps. Keep in mind this is just a tutorial and was not meant to be a pattern so it is a bit more vague than you would find in an actual pattern. The numbers of squares to cut are approximate since it is meant to be a bit random. Keep your scraps in case you need extra squares of any of the fabrics.
