I'm planning to make one of the pineapple quilts in black batik and different colors (like the one in the photo) soon. Although I hope to make this one with 20 blocks instead of just nine. I think it will be beautiful. I'll use a different batik fabric for each of the other color places. No fabric will be repeated, other than the black. Just like I did in this one.
Of course, I have to stop reading so much in order to actually get anything done. My friend Donna K. gave me her copies of the Twilight series. They were printed for young adults and are quite good. I've started the third one this morning.
