Pineapple Sherbet

My daughter Jenni and her cousin Gabby were born 5 days apart and our families always celebrate birthdays and other major occasions together.

In September the girls turn 30 and we will be celebrating Gabby's wedding.  Saturday night was the Hens Night and we had such a fun time at an Italian cooking class in Sydney "making" a 5-course feast.

I wanted to make a quilt for Gabby's birthday present so last August I asked her big sister for ideas.  Danielle immediately suggested pineapples and I was tickled pink because I'd seen many pineapple blocks designed by Jackie Padesky Quilts on Instagram over the previous year or so and had been wanting to make some of these cute blocks mainly using some bright and fun Me and My Sister fabrics in my stash plus a few others I bought.

Sewed the last stitches in the binding on Friday night so I could pack it up to give to Gabby on Saturday.


Came across a fun shopping bag in Coles a few months ago, so wrapping was sorted.

Such a happy quilt to make.
