On My Design Wall....

WooHoo - all the blocks are finished!  They aren't together, but they are finished.  The Pineapple Blossom pattern calls for sashing and cornerstones between the blocks.  I'm leaving those out.

As I was looking at the quilt in the darkened room last night I realized why there was something about those components that did not seem quite right to me from first seeing the pattern.  It's because every medium/dark strip in the quilt ends with a point.  The sashing would have a blunt end and I guess my brain felt that something was amiss.  It's just my opinion.

So, that's why you're looking at a dark pic.  The background is busy and I was struck at how the starbursts stood out in the poor light.

And the color photo is so horrible b/c it is another cloudy day which means absolutely no natural light is coming through my itty bitty basement window.

What's on your design wall today?  Click over to Judy's for more eye candy.

Have a great day!


  1. Oh I do LOVE this. I love this pattern but I love it even more without the sashing. Makes me want to make one right now too. :)

  2. I think the blocks work well together without sashing. Good job!

  3. My Pineapple Blossom quilt is on the frame right now for quilting. I set my blocks without sashing too because I thought it detracted from the stars.
