The other setting triangles...........

While I was in the basement pressing the setting triangle fabric for the 16 patch quilt I glanced over at my design wall which has had these pineapple blocks on it for a couple months.  I had been trying several neutral light prints for the setting triangles and then I saw this batik fabric and thought it might be fun.  The color is off in this photo since it is a dusty blue with beige spots.  I only had a yard of it and I cut all of the side triangles I needed.  This did not leave me a large enough piece to cut the corner triangles (look at the top corners).  I do have enough to add a straight strip to the corner blocks before I add the smaller triangles which were end cuts from cutting the big triangles. I think this fabric gives it a little whimsical vibe.


The wax coated Amaryllis has just one flower left plus that last bud to bloom.  On the other Amaryllis one bud stalk is quite tall and the other stalk hasn't grown much.

That will give you a beautiful quilt. Luckily we do patchwork, so we're able to fix it even without enough fabric.

The pineapple blocks are lovely, they're going to make a beautiful quilt. I also have Amaryllis blooming. We need some flowers in the winter! Happy stitching!

I really like the pineapple setting triangle fabric you selected. Sometimes you just have to let something sit for the right inspiration.

YES - great setting triangle fabric for the pineapple blocks. Fun to see the comparison between the two amaryllis plants.

The juxtaposition of the grids adds interest and the darker value of the border make your lights shine like sherbet.

👏 👍 🤗 Now that's what I call a great surprise ! I agree, you added whimsy and fun to your pineapples. It stoled the show from your amaryllis, but I am cheering for that little bud to open .

What an bold choice to put with the pineapple blocks. I love it! A red, orange or yellow binding would bring it all together.
