Pineapple by Pam Mayfield
Pam made this little quilt from some of last year's Civil War reproduction collection
1862: Battle Hymn.
She added a gray stripe for background. This is a little quilt, just 24" square.
And Debbie St.Germain used the same line for the borders for this little piece. She distressed the background to show off the paisley quilting. See her pattern for this dog here:
Debbie's inspiration was this sampler/album quilt from New York. See more about the dogs here:
Debbie's a fan of pictorial applique. Pam noticed they think alike---even though they've never met. A gray stripe IS the perfect background.
