More SVBAQ Pineapple Blocks

Deanna's Red Pineapple block
Happy Day!  I am here to share more pineapple blocks from the Shenandoah Botanical Album Quilt.

The first picture is a block belonging to Deanna from Colorado.
Her blocks will finish at 17"
She back basted the block.

Deanna does beautiful hand stitching.
Her quilt, "Le Petite Pomegranate" is currently touring with the AQSG exhibit "In War Time: A Study of Civil War Era Quilts 1850-1865".

Isn't the red print she used fantastic?

I am looking forward to sharing more of Deanna's blocks.

Shona's Red and Pink Pineapple Blocks

These are Shona's first two pineapple blocks.
Shona is also from Colorado and is currently stitching away in South Africa.  Her 9" blocks are the perfect size to stitch on during long flights.  She also back bastes.

Shona also does fantastic hand work.  Her quilt, "Cheddar Bites" was on exhibit at the Rocky Mountain Quilt Museum.

Only a few more days until the next block is announced on the SVBAQ blog - November 1.
If you subscribe to the blog, the announcement will come directly to your inbox!

Feel free to join in anytime!


  1. Deanna's block is beautiful! I love the red print fabric she chose for her block.
    Shona's petite blocks are just darling. Beautiful applique' work in all of the blocks listed in your post!

  2. Great blocks! Can't wait for the next ones!

  3. Happy to see these...I saw Deanna's over at the SVBAQ page and clicked on it but it didn't take me anywhere so I was not sure if the link was wrong or if she did not have a blog. Both hers and Shona's blocks are lovely and it has been enjoyable this month to view the variety here, on the SVBAQ page and Facebook! :)
