The Big Pineapple quilt

After making a Pineapple mini quilt and runner recently, I decided to make a lap sized quilt using a cute pattern by Jackie Padesky.
I already had plenty of yellow and green fabrics so just needed some white for the background. 
Last week, I finished sewing the yellow pineapple blocks.
Then got the quilt pin basted ready for quilting.
I found the perfect yellow backing for the quilt to match the bright colour of the pineapples.
For the quilting, I did a simple cross hatch which kind of resembled the texture of a pineapple and then bound it in some of the teal green. 
And because I live in Australia and we have a great love for "Big Things" this has now been renamed "The Big Pineapple Quilt" in honour of the iconic Pineapple at Nambour in Queensland.
