Finished quilting



I had some time this morning to work, so I decided I'd finish up the brown pineapple quilt - hoorah. So here it is, in all its glory. As the blocks for this quilt were made by a wide variety of people on different machines and around the world, they are not all precisely the same sizes or colours, but on the whole, it went together fairly well. The squares in where the blocks meet do have the odd corner a little off, but in general I do like the effect. Not sure what colour I will bind it with yet - I'd love to use the red, but I don't think I have enough, so perhaps a dark brown. But I'm not going to do that for a few weeks, probably, as there are some other things I really need to work on in February and early March.

Love the fish border--I had some of that fabric--I loved it--and it works really, really well on the pineapples!

It is amazing how well the squares went together - being that they came from all over. The difference in the colours looks lovely.

Beautiful job putting those all together, I never would have guessed those pineapple blocks came from here there and the other place, if you hadn't mentioned it. Great progress on your Feb. to do list!
