This stunning Pineapple block quilt (a log cabin variation) by Amy Pabst was created from some interesting fabrics including silks, velvets, and polyesters. Each block measures 1 1/2" (yes, 1 1/2" inches) and has 49 pieces. Amy pieced Pure Velvet on a Singer Featherweight and then quilted it on her BERNINA.

With a total of 21,609 pieces, (but who's counting?) Pure Velvet won First Place, Pieced Wall, at Road to California 2020.

Stunning quilt but sadly I don't like it at all, I admire the skill making it , it still reminds me of test patterns for visual accuracy...... hmmmm. or maybe radiation warning signs. Tremendous skill in this quilt!

Incredible accomplishment - stunning coloration and I know how slippery those velvets are. This quilt is on another level entirely.Brava!

I can seriously admire the work but it does remind me why I hate pineapple blocks and will never do them again! Life is too shirt and there are too many other quilts out there to make!
