The pineapple has long been a symbol of gracious hospitality and sharing. Did you know that there about as many varieties of pineapple from around the world as there are varieties of pineapple quilts?
A trip to the Dole Plantation on Oahu (about a 40-minute drive from Waikiki) inspired this slideshow of pineapples and their quilty counterparts...pineapple quilts from our very own TQS members, that we'd like to share with you.
To learn more about these quilts, go the Quilt Gallery and do a search by the TQS member's screen name (shown on each slide).
