THE PURPLE PINEAPPLE
Foundation piecing sounded fun (by now I was checking books out of the library).
To try my teeth on this new technique, I created a little table topper. (bottom photo) Hey, this WAS fun and nothing could be easier! A full sized quilt was planned and fabrics acquired.
Nothing quite prepared me for the length of this journey. Hours and hours of 'easy' work. Whew!
The full quilt has an unusual edge. The border IS the backing brought round and sewn to the edge. It's got mitred corners, all neatly finished, but strange. I have no idea how I managed it? circa 1995
This tied quilt was a gift for my husband's grandmother who was well known for her log cabin quilts and crazy quilt cushions. Gran refused to put it on a bed, it hung on a special dowel shelf for years and consequently is in perfect condition.
