make it – pineapple mini quilt

i think sometimes i think i have more free time than i actually have. last count i think i was somewhere around 361 started projects. i kid! but seriously…

i joined this mini swap forever ago. and had finally nailed down what i wanted to do. actually, i knew exactly what i wanted to do, but couldn’t figure it out. think kaleidoscope, meets fractals, meets… ZZZZZZzzzzzzz. no sleep. so- i had also been eyeing lots of pineapple blocks, and thought since i couldn’t button up that kaleidoscope business, that this idea would work perfectly with the colors i wanted. then i went to art walk (at the start of june) down in pioneer square, and found the most amazing solids at dry goods in a bundle with some more cotton and steel… even better!

this is the mini i made. my partner said she liked orange, so that was a starting point. this pattern was with red pepper quilts, and i used a tutorial from a little bit biased for construction. it was by no means super easy, but… i don’t know. there was something methodical and relaxing watching it take shape. also, not super quick. but really gratifying when all done. i wish i had the commitment/TIME to make a whole quilt of this. an oatmeal shot cotton with some dreamy soft plaids….maybe someday.

happy weekend and have a safe fourth!
