I finished this quilt I named “Pineapple” in November. I designed this paper-pieced block earlier this year for the QuiltCon block challenge. The block alone was pretty plain, but when joined together and colored like this looked so much different! I decided to enter this in the QuiltCon show, but failed to get in.

At first glance, the blocks all look the same, but there are actually six slightly different blocks in here.

I had been working on a number of 24-step color wheels for my color swatch book and decided to use up a bunch of my new rainbow-ey fabric. I wanted to do a gradation from one color to another, so for one type of patch it goes from yellow-yellow-green to blue-green, and the other pieces it goes from yellow to red-violet.

For the back, I decided to try an 8-step gradation between yellow and blue, but all poured on one large piece of fabric. With all the seams in the front, I didn’t want a lumpy back, too.
