Christmas 2016

2016 FAL

Finished just in the Nick of time! This Pineapple Blossom quilt was started in Bonnie Hunter's Class in September 2016 and was finished on Christmas Eve at 9:00 pm, ready to be wrapped and gifted on Christmas.

This quilt was #1 of the 2016 Finish-A-Log, 4th quarter.

 Pattern - Pineapple Blossom
by Bonnie Hunter
block size - 12 inches
quilt size - 63" x 84"

Yes -- I do see that one of the blocks is not in alignment. I actually saw this as I was sewing the binding two days before Christmas. This quilt top was finished and pressed in October, while I finished Ethel's Garden quilt. To keep it wrinkle free, I had folded it, right sides together and hung it up on a pant hanger. When I took it down, I laid it across the mid arm rails and unfolded as I rolled it onto the rails. I never saw this quilt completed on the design wall.

Lesson learned -- always take a photo of the quilt top BEFORE you quilt or load the rails.

I was told that it is not that noticeable - however I am not one to agree or not - as soon as I see this picture, my eyes go right to the tilted square.

This quilt was for my niece for her brand new bedroom - the colors were chosen based on her color theme for all her back to school supplies this year. Everything had to be be blue, white or black - the colors of her new Vera Bradley Backpack. I'm not sure if she noticed the tilted square or not, but to be honest, I have been put in my place! Only God is perfect!

Linking up with crazy mom quilts and finish it up Friday.


  1. How can there be no comments? This is a great finish! Bold design and the blue keeps it fresh! Thanks for sharing.

  2. I had to go back and look, after I read you said one was out of alignment...whoops! oh, well, I really hate to rip and have to confess If I'd seen it before quilting, I may have let it be anyway. it is a beautiful quilt no matter how you look at it.
