I'd like to share my pineapple quilt with you.  This January I lost my father.  I was blessed to have him be my dad for many of his 91 years.  It's still hard to believe that one day we could be playing cards and 2 days later he'd be gone.  Dad and Mom raised 5 daughters and 1 son.  All his girls sew and Dad took delight in seeing what we were working on.  I often would come to visit and he'd pull out a picture he had come across which he thought I might want for my art files.  The last quilt blocks I took to show him were these pineapple blocks.  He loved the vibrant colours.  So Dad this one's for you...Dad's Pineapple.
