A Pineapple Shows In Texas…

October 21, 2014
I’m excited to announce that actually not just one, but two of my pineapple quilts will be spending a lot of time in Texas this year.  First up, my latest pineapple quilt made from Kona’s beautiful coral and indigo cotton solids has been selected for inclusion in Robert Kaufman’s wonderful “30 Quilts for 30 Years” 30th Anniversary of Kona Cotton exhibit and look book
 
Thirty amazing, talented quilters were invited to submit their Kona Cotton quilts (#konacotton) and the results are spectacular.  You won’t be able to buy your favorite Kona solids fast enough once you see the photos of all the wonderful quilts you can make.

Want to make your own Pineapple quilt?  Detailed instructions to make the block and quilt are included in my book Rotary Cutting Revolution by C&T Publishing.  The book can be purchased at Amazon.com  or downloaded in its entirety FREE when you enroll in my Craftsy “Traditional Blocks Made Simpler” class.  With my Make It Simpler® technique, you’ll be making this seemingly complex block in quickly and accurately in no time – just stack, cut & sew perfect blocks!  

The original Kona tomato & cream quilt I made in 2007 will be on display as part of the International Quilt Festival’s “Ruby Jubilee Exhibition” celebrating their 40th anniversary in Houston.

I hope you’ll have a chance to see this wonderful exhibit.  It’s sure to be a highlight at Houston this year. That quilt will then pack up and reappear at QuiltCon in Austin, from February 19-22, 2015 – will you be attending?
Make it Simpler,
Anita

Are you going to Festival and/or Quiltcon? I'd so like to meet you as I've enjoyed watching your work online

I saw your quilts and loved them. I love your Rotary Revolution book, and your Arrowhead block is one of my all time favorites. I've made 3 veterans quilts, a table topper and just finished a queen sized quilt for my daughter.
