Hello friends. I needed something summerish for my new studio and thought how perfect a faux quilted pineapple pattern would be hanging on the wall. I wanted something bright and colorful. For some reason I kept coming back to this pineapple quilt square I found scrolling on Pinterest. As most of you already know I don’t quilt so what better way to recreate this pineapple pattern then to use Ann Butler Designs Faux Quilting Stamps.
- Ann Butler Designs ColorBox™ Crafter’s Ink in Sunshine, Tangelo and Limelight
- Ann Butler Designs Faux Quilting Stamps from Unity Stamp Co
- Acrylic Blocks to use with the stamps
- Liquid Adhesive
- Die cut letters
- 12 x 12 pattern cardstock
- 12 x 12 acrylic frame
How to make the pineapple pattern:
- Stamp 16 square and 4 triangle Faux Quilting Stamps on a piece of white cardstock using Sunshine and Tangelo inks. Set aside to dry.
- Stamp 2 square and 4 triangle Faux Quilting Stamps on a piece of white cardstock using Limelight ink.
- Once the ink is dry cut each square and triangle out.
- Adhered all the pieces in a pineapple shape on a piece of cardstock that had adhesive on it.
- Cut the excess cardstock off the pattern.
- Arrange the letters how you want them on the 12 x 12 cardstock. In my case I used the words Aloha Kakahiaka which means Good Morning in Hawaiian.
- Before adhering the pineapple pattern on the piece of 12 x 12 cardstock I little sponged the Tangleo and Sunshine ink over the pattern.
- I did the same thing to the top of the pineapple with Limelight.
- Adhere the pineapple to the 12 x 12 cardstock and place in an acrylic frame.
Now I have a cute sign that will make me think of Hawaii every time I walk in my studio.
