Beautiful Pineapple quilt top by Marcia Koester

Marcia Koester was in my Pineapple class in late January and came in a couple of weeks ago with this beautiful Pineapple top. She made 56 blocks following the Barn Dance pattern from our book Positively Pineapple using the Pineapple Rule. The top is made entirely from scraps-florals, conversation prints, calicoes, and pretty much anything that she had.


It is what I call a "controlled scrap" quilt, because in this case, each row (or round) is made with the same fabric. When you look at the blocks upclose, you see this easily, but from further back it is hard to notice.

It is truly a lovely quilt and she did a wonderful job. I can't wait to see it quilted. Thank you for sharing the top with us Marcia!

Happy Stitching,
