I bought this ruler and wanted to give it a try so I decided to make a couple of pineapple lap quilts for a local nursing home. The one quilt turned into two. Does that ever happen to you. My scrap fabric multiplies when I turn my back.
Just for the record, and I have no vested interest in saying this. I love Creative Grids rulers.
I used leftover fabrics from days (decades?) gone by to make these. This first one is more planned than the second one, mainly because I had enough of the fabrics to be specific in my choices.
Here is a close-up of the quilting, using a curved ruler:
Here is the second quilt, a little more scrappy:
Here is a close-up of the quilting, just freehand loops and paisleys:
Here are the two side by side:
I love how different fabrics and quilting, even small changes can make a pattern so very different. I think they finished in the 40 x 40 range. They have already been donated so it’s too late to measure now. 🙂
Which one do you like better? Why?
Having fun with rulers, on the journey, Jackie
