Diver Pinapples {A Finished Bee Quilt}

In 2015 I participated in a secret sister gift exchange with my 2014 Triplet moms group. My secret sister, Victoria, loves diving and going to the beach. I decided to make her a beach themed quilt for the final gift to give it to her for Christmas. I asked my bee group, That Stash Bee, for pineapple blocks based on this color palette:

Here are my example blocks. I used white/cream for the center and triangles and blues and turquoise for the rest.

Here are all the blocks put together:

And here is the final product. I quilted it with figure 8 free motion quilting.

I'm especially proud of the backing which is a representation of the diving flag that I pieced from red and white solids. I bound the quilt in a teal solid to contrast nicely with the back and blend in with the front.

Needless to say, she said it is her favorite bedding and uses it on her bed all the time.

Started in July 2015, finished Dec 2015. 
Size- 60x72
