Name of Pattern Traditional Pineapple What was your inspiration? Chris asked me to make him a pineapple quilt so I chose a traditional pattern. He said he wanted it in bright colors, his favorites being yellow and orange. When I showed him the pattern and a completed square, he said it was lovely. He did not know anything about the pattern being traditional and expected me to applique 'pineapples' onto fabric. This suited him and asked me to complete the project. Says it's the best thing he's ever asked someone to make for him. It was a challenge making this because I did not use the recommended paper piecing that was required. I'm very pleased with the final product!
