A Pineapple Finish

This quilt is for me!

It hangs above the bench in our entryway and adds some summer cheer to the space.

I almost named it my Tour de France quilt as I worked on it during the tour and did most of the quilting while watching it. And the yellow pineapples!

I made it using the quick curve ruler mini designed by Sew Kind of Wonderful. This is a pattern iteration from the mini pumpkin pattern I bought, free on their website.

I added the churn dash border to it - do I need to explain why?!?!

Overall I'm happy with it but will go back and add some more quilting to the border. It doesn't hang flat and that's because of all the cross hatch quilting I did in the middle. This is a case do-as-I-say-not-as-I-do because I knew that heavy quilting in the inside would effect the lay of the quilt but I did it anyway!

I did get to quilt it on the PFAFF creative 3.0 machine that I'm currently reviewing for QUILTsocial. This machine makes everything easy and fun and look good too :) I'm hoping to get a lot of quilting done while it's visiting at my house!

Plus, I had a lot of fun mixing up my cross hatching thread with different colours of Aurifil thread. I actually used pink too - it's in the machine in this photo. For each pair of lines, one is yellow and the second one alternated between the grey, lime green and pink. Changing the colours made all the quilting more enjoyable for me!

And it gives me my first finish this quarter for the Finish Along!

Definitely a fun project to start the summer quilting:)
