Patriotic Pineapple - from wall hanging to HUGE!

I LOVE hearing from my customers!  Yesterday I received an email from Jenny Waller, saying that she had purchased my Patriotic Pineapples pattern at the Springfield, MO show last September.  She made a few blocks, then a few more...then 945 blocks!!!!!!!  Which equals 34,965 pieces!!!!!  HOLY PINEAPPLES!!!!  Jenny's quilt measures 108" x 140", and she did this in just 5 months.  And just in case you're trying to do the math...these blocks are 4" finished.   

So let's back little Patriotic Pineapple quilt finishes at 32" x 40".  Sad, now that you know about Jenny's monster quilt!  When I designed this quilt, I really wanted to make it BIG - I thought it would be so striking and cool, but there is just never enough time.  I wanted to have the pattern ready for an upcoming show, so I had to be realistic and just make a wall hanging size.  I am soooooo happy that Jenny made a huge one!

And now be ready to be awed!  Look how beautiful!

Jenny entered her monster quilt at a show put on by the Hill 'n Hollow Quilt Guild in Mountain Home, Arkansas.  The judge, who is a member of the National Association of Certified Quilt Judges chose Jenny for a much deserved merit award. 

And are you ready?  Here is the whole thing with Jenny - look how huge it is!  I LOVE IT!!!

I hope to see this beauty (the quilt and Jenny - lol) in person at the Springfield, MO show next year. 

So....if you are inspired to make this, or some other size of can find the pattern on my website.  And no matter the size - I want to see it!
