Pineapple Crazy Wall Hanging

I started working on tiny Pineapple blocks last January while living in our 5th wheel trailer in Fairhope, Alabama. I thought I would get quite a few blocks made but never thought I would get all of the 4" blocks finished while we were down there. However, all of the blocks for the center were completed by the time we returned home in early March.
I spent a lot of time agonizing over the border. I tried a variety of different pieced blocks but none of them framed the center well. Finally I made some scrappy pieced flying geese units that pleased me. Once I got the top together with the border, I began thinking about the quilting. I decided to outline all the light areas to help emphasize the star that is formed with the light fabrics. That worked very well. I added some feathered stitching in the flying geese border which also looked good.
My final step was to make a hanging sleeve on the back of the quilt, and then I put on the binding.
Here is the final result hanging from my quilt display shelf in the upstairs hallway of our home.
