March’s Quilting Goal: Baste, Quilt & Bind My Dazzling Pineapple Patch Quilt

Completed Dazzling Pineapple Patch Quilt Top

It’s time for March’s One Monthly Goal Link-Up by Elm Street Quilts!

My goal is to finish my Dazzling Pineapple Patch Quilt. I finished piecing the top last October and completing this quilt is on my 2019 to-do list.

I’ll use cotton batting and natural muslin for the back. I’d love to hand quilt this one with some big stitches, but there are A LOT of seams and that makes hand quilting difficult–at least for me. So, I will machine quilt it. My plan for the quilting is to do vertical and horizontal lines along the edges of the blocks and through the center of the blocks. Then, I’ll do diagonal lines to crisscross the blocks and mirror the “X” in each. I’m lucky because I still have leftover fabric from the blocks, which I’ll use for the binding. I want the binding to reflect the mishmash of fabrics in the quilt.

I want to enter this quilt in a non-juried show that has a mid-April deadline, so I’m determined to get it done!

Stay tuned!
