February UFO Completed

I completed my February UFO late last week, with plenty of time to spare.  I just got a photo of it completed today though.

The original pattern looks like this:

SunshinePineapple

I had to change my version of course.

I had fun quilting it.  I did a medium-is stipple around the pineapples.  In the green sashing, I did a crossing line/square/triangle meander.  It was actually nice to do something that was different than a meander.  I tried to be as strait as I could, but if there was a wobble or a rounded corner I didn’t worry too much.  In the piano key border it was a free-form cross-hatch-like quilting.  Again, I was focusing on having fun rather than perfection.

I think right now, instead of perfection, I am going to focus on finishing the quilts and just having fun with the designs.
