: Lois K. Ide (1920-2010) created this wall-hanging which she titled Zebras to Pineapples for a Hoffman Textile Company quilt challenge. Made during 1990, the six-sided wall-hanging is constructed of cotton and polyester; it has four concentric hexagon borders based around a center hexagon design. The block pattern is called the pineapple. The striped fabric that is used for the pineapple appliqué is cut so that one can see a zebra in the pineapple. The wall-hanging measures 121cm x 104cm (47.5 inches x 41 inches). Lois was a native Ohioan and resident of Bucyrus, who began sewing at the early age of four. She learned appliqué and patchwork from her mother and embroidery from her aunt. After years of mastering her craft, she became a master quilter and an internationally known teacher with students worldwide. View on Ohio Memory.
