This quilt uses 5 fat quarters: 3 red and 2 blue.  Add in 2 1/2 yards of light to medium chambray and you’re ready to get going!!  I love Amber’s light chambray background!!  Be sure to check out her blog post also!!

I know pineapples are super trendy right now, but I do have a little family history that involves pineapples….want to hear it?  My Dad’s ancestors left Portugal and Brazil and immigrated to what is now Hawaii to work the pineapple plantations.  I often imagine how bad life must have been to want to live in a shack and pick pineapples everyday.  My Grandma was raised in Hawaii as a result and as a child I remember her always wearing a muumuu…… and so pineapples are close to my heart.IMG_7953a

The finished quilt measures 40″ x 48″ and the finished block measures 8″ x 14″.

  1. Thank you for sharing this pattern. My hubby grew up in Hawaii and worked in the pineapple fields one summer when he was 15, so I have a thing for pineapples
