When Ela and Geta sent us some links with the pineapple block techniques, I liked very much this one and wanted to try it.
It's a quick and simple method. Not so many calculations.
And what I like most is that the squares corners become a little bit rounded.
But how to use it in my quilt and what colors should I choose?
I made a few designs with different layouts, using initially only black-grey/white-red. When I decided on one of them, I checked again my stash and I found 9 more solids. So, I changed my plan and I started to cut and sew.
Because the patchwork design seemed too rigid to me, instead of straight lines (my first choice), I quilted it with wavy lines, showing up a beautiful cable-like wrinkling.
So, I solved two problems with this one simple quilting solution: aesthetics, on the one hand, and the limitations of the batting, on the other hand.
A quick, simple and I hope, nice lap quilt, looking like an intriguing person: inspiring a little bit cold because of the black from the outside of the on-point squares, but in the same time, warmth, due to the colors from the inside squares...
Have a beautiful week, my dears!
