An Easy Donation Project

Pineapple Fabrics recently sent an email requesting blocks to be made into quilts for Brenner Children’s Hospital.  Some days I feel completely overwhelmed with making donation quilts, but this looked easy and fun.  They asked for applique pineapple blocks, using a template they provided.

Here are mine:

A couple of my quilting buddies made even more, and Chela even used Dr. Seuss fabric for hers!

Here is the link to the Pineapple Pieces Project if you are interested.  Full disclosure: these blocks were as fun and easy as they looked, I also appreciated not having to make a whole top and quilt it!

And I have donated this little art quilt of to the Studio Art Quilt Association’s annual auction.

Quarantine has provided a lot of good quilting time, though I miss getting together with my quilting buddies!  I hope you are finding benefits to enforced time at home, too.

  1. I saw that Pineapple Fabrics is collecting these. I can’t help but think how much they remind me of Wilson, the soccer ball character with Tom Hanks in “Castaway.” Does anyone see that besides me? Still, the blocks are for a very worthwhile cause, and yours area lovely. Well done!

    • Was it you who subscribed central Florida MQG to my blog? If so, thanks. I just subscribed to CFMQG blog and will enjoy seeing what you are doing. We have an active MQG here, too 🙂

  2. Good for you for making the pineapple blocks–I, too, feel overwhelmed sometimes by all the requests that come my way. Others are better than I am at making and making. SAQA should be thrilled with your color block quilt–it’s terrific!

    • Every time I donate a quilt to an auction I fear that it won’t sell, so I am anxious for the auction to see what happens. Seems to me a lot of the SAQA folks are heavy into surface decoration/alteration so at least this will be different.
