American Patchwork Quilting Pocast episode 314 Jackie Padesky

I thought it would be super fun to share how things roll in the land of quilting! I am inspired every day by quilters and their creativity. A few months back I noticed that pineapples were showing up all over the place and low and behold there was also a pineapple quilt that was too cute for words! I of course, want to make it. Because I love to make cute things. BUT I also wanted to chat with the quilter behind ‘that pineapple quilt’ and learn a bit about Jackie Padesky of Pineapple fame!

Follow Jackie at Instagram and scroll to the end to download her free Pineapple quilt pattern.. I know you want it!.
