Pineapples !

I finished the pineapple table topper using the pot holder technique.  I'm very pleased with the results:

Have a close up look at the front seam:
and the back:
There are historically several bindings for the blocks.  This one is the knife edge.  The first blocks I did had applied straight cut binding, put on opposite sides first then the remaining 2.  There were also continuous bindings that were single thickness that did not have mitered corners.  A few have been found with woven tape bindings.  And of course there were some where the front had been taken to the back and those where the back was turned to the front.  The versatility of these blocks just cranks me up and I wish I had several more hours in the day to get more done!
I'm off to put some applied binding on a couple of Amish style blocks.  Wheeeee!
