Winter pineapple warmer

Since starting these blocks at Stitchtopia I have worked to complete them so that I can cross off at least one of the WIPs in my pile!  The blocks are Exploding Pineapple blocks as taught by Karin Hellaby and made of Flannel. They use fabrics from the Christmas Spirit range and my intention when making them was to produce a genuinely warm quilt which would allow some of my older visitors to feel a little more of the Christmas cheer.  I didn't want anything which was too overtly Christmas as the cold season can go on for a lot longer than the couple of weeks which we really celebrate, so I have kept it rather subdued.

I am now debating about how to bring it all together.  I have tan fabric and will do sashing with red cornerstones. I want to make a border of the off-cuts and am thinking half square triangles of tan and the various fabrics.  Any thoughts?

We had a great day yesterday.  Cherry and Jackie came for the day and there was a hive of activity in the studio.  Jackie is doing battle with an apple-core quilt - rather her than me!!!! - Cherry was doing battle with jumbo decorative cord and a cushion for Mothers Day. I sorted stash and did helpful things like make lists of outstanding projects. 

I am hoping to have this quilt top finished before the end of the week.  Let's see if I make it!
