Scrappy Pineapple Quilt

Sometimes I just want to power stitch without having to stress over intricate design and precision piecing. A scrappy pineapple block is made for days like this. All I needed was a pile of 2 ½-inch squares in compatible colors and random 1 ½-inch strips separated into lights and darks. I made a dent in the scrap bin, and got a colorful quilt that required very little planning.

The first 20 blocks.

The blocks kept on coming until there were 100!

Ugh. Basting. My least favorite part of the process! But I was with good friends all working on various projects, so the time passed quickly!

Quilted and bound! I even stitched down the corner miters of the binding! Now the Scrappy Pineapple is ready for a new home!
