Here is the story of how I quilted myself in a corner

I had an idea about making a pixel pineapple table runner.

Schema were made, size of pieces of fabrics calculated (maths were made!!!)
and off we go.

First problem is when I noticed that the leafs are bigger than the body of the pineapple and to add to this problem, I manage to applique the leafs a bit crooked so it look unbalanced.

Well ok, I have more of the background fabrics so I add some strips on each side.

The result is a top too big to be a table runner, too small for a quilt top (and anyway, who want to have a big pineapple as a nursery theme LOL)

I guess I am not the proud designer and owner of a pineapple wall hanging.


  1. Looks pretty. Sorry it didn't cooperate with the sizing. Keep at it ... you'll get it! Bet the next one will be the perfect size!!!

  2. It's cute, even if it's not what you were expecting!

  3. Ahhh. I see that it is your design :) I love it. Could you accentuate a border with similar pineapples to make a larger quilt on the next go round?
