Rainbow Pineapples are in the Blogger's Quilt Festival!

Have you been over to Amy's Creative Side to check out all the wonderful quilts in the Blogger's Quilt Festival?  If not, you definitely need to go!  But before you do, I'd love for you to get one more little peek at my entry in the ROYGBIV Category -

Rainbow Pineapples of course!

This scrap quilt was my project last year for SoScrappy's 2012 Rainbow Scrap Challenge.  Each month, Angela announced a color, and those of us participating made blocks from our scraps of that color.  I used my crumbs.  These little pineapples only finish at 3-3/4 inches!!!  The entire quilt is only 21" square :*)

I made this quilt without a pattern after seeing a quilt on Pinterest that I loved.  
It was made by Barbara Polston and she called hers Birds Fly Over the Rainbow.

Each month I made 2 blocks from the color of the month....see those little fussy-cut centers? *cute*

And I made a paper-piecing pattern for the tiny flying geese to go around the borders....

I have to say, I am pretty happy with the way it turned out!!!

This past week, I took the quilt top to retreat and quilted it with my little Bernina... mostly stitch-in-the-ditch, with a little FMQ feathering on the corners without flying geese.  You can only see the feathers in bright light like this which washes out the color, but I was happy with them nonetheless.

......then I put the binding on yesterday ....all by machine.

And this is the fun print I used for the backing....

This is my favorite block....♥♥♥

I love the secondary designs you get from Pineapple blocks, don't you?

I hope you take time to look at some of the other fun things I've been up to here at A Quilt and A Prayer!  You can click on the HOME button at the top of the blog to read some recent posts, or you can click on the Rainbow Scrap Challenge or NewFO Challenge buttons - both really fun activities that I'm participating in this year.
