Pineapple Mini Quilt-Finished!

Got my mini pineapple quilt done! The finished block measures 16.5"x10.75". I used a jelly roll strip plus a cut from a fat quarter to bind the quilt with this purple contrast fabric. I am still working at perfecting my binding technique but I think I get better every time. I learned a lot from this quilt in terms of seam allowances when making half square triangles. Next time, I'll either use a one to one mini charm ratio when making yellow or green corners and have a little waste or cut the corners to be 3" so the finished square is 2.5". Since I didn't do that this block, I had to square up my rowa more often than I would have liked and therefore it is a bit smaller finished. But that's what I like about quilting- always learning something to take to the next project! 
 This pineapple pattern is so delicious I want to use it to create a lap size quilt or larger to cuddle with this winter. 

I tried to get Wade to model my finished mini quilt that is just his size but he wasn't super cooperative-so many other things to explore!

  1. What makes the 3235 movement special is replica watches sale how dedicated it is to accuracy. In addition to the standard COSC Chronometer rating given to each individual replica watches sale movement, Rolex now employs their own barrage of tests to ensure accuracy and reliability over time - that they simply call the "Rolex Chronometer Tests." Inside the 3255 and 3235 automatic movements are the new Rolex Chronergy replica watches sale escapements along with variable inertia balance wheels. There is also a fancy Paraflex shock absorbing system to replica watches sale ensure more accuracy over time. While the 3235 movement isn't about adding functionality, it is about swiss replica watches further refining the longevity and performance of a Rolex movement. The 3235 further has a 4Hz (28,800 bph) operating frequency and a nice power reserve of replica watches about 70 hours.
