GO! Pineapple Lemonade Quilt and Free Pattern!!!

  I am so excited to share a new finish today!!! Isn't it just so happy making!!!   I have always wanted to make a pineapple quilt, and when AccuQuilt asked if I wanted to make a project using their new GO! Lemon Die, I knew it was time ;)   I mean, what better than a pinapple quilt with added lemons so you can make Pineapple Lemonade!!!!      And there is a free PDF Pattern that you can download right here :) 

I used yellow print scraps from my stash for the pineapple blocks and yellow solid scraps for the pinapples.  I just love having all of the shades of yellow, and doing the lemons in solids really made them pop.   So fun, and a great scrapbuster!!!   And of course, cutting with AccuQuilt is super fast especially when working with so many scraps ;) 

I used 4 yards of White Paper Grunge for my background fabric.  You know how I love grunge, and White Paper grunge is probably my all time favorite!!!  And this project will use up about 2 1/2" yards of yellow print scraps and 2 1/4 yards of yellow solid scraps.   I can actually get my yellow scrap bin closed now!!!    The Pineapple Lemonade Quilt finishes at 50" x 60" so it is a great lap size quilt.   

I think the reason a Pineapple quilt has been on my list for so long is because all of the cutting in so many different sizes.   I just love my AccuQuilt for cutting scraps!!   And especially for applique.  Can you imagine having to trace and then cut out all this applique by hand.   You also attach the fusible before you cut, so it is super easy to layer and stack your applique to the quilt and then fuse it .   Below is a list of the dies I used, see which ones you already have in your die library and maybe add a few more ;)   

And when it came time to quilt it, I wanted to do something dense because the applique was over the whole quilt and I did not secure stitch around each applique.   Rather I decided to secure stitch it with the quilting.  So a nice dense wavy crosshatch keeps all of the applique nice and neat.  I love all of the texture it adds to the quilt as well.   

And that is my Pineapple Lemonade Quilt.   I hope you love it as much as I do ;)   Isn't this picture AccuQuilt took of it just so great!!!  I love seeing it styled in a home setting.    And if you want to make your own, you can download the free PDF Pineapple Quilt Pattern Here.   And when you are done I would love to see it!!!    You can share a picture on social media with #happyquiltingwithmc and tag me at @happyquiltingmc or you can always email me a picture at  I can't wait to see your Pineapple Lemonade Quilts!!

Oh, and fun little side note . . . if you want to see this shared on YouTube, you can visit the Die Launch video.  It is shared towards the end of the show at 27:45 minutes in :)  It is just so fun to see your projects loved so much, just makes me smile.   

I hope you all have a very Happy Quilting Day!!!  

Pin It!


  1. Pretty Quilt - lot of sunshine to it! :-)

  2. Lovely quilt with a delightful spring feel.

  3. Your pineapple quilt is adorable - so bright and sunny! I have never made a pineapple quilt before, partly for the reasons you mentioned and I don't own an Accuquilt. I would love to get one but I don't have the space to store it and can't afford it either. Your quilt is very pretty though.


Thank you so much for your sweet comments. I just love hearing from you!!
Have a Happy Quilting Day :)
