Recently, we spent 5 days visiting with my daughter and her family. Standing in her kitchen and sipping my first cup of green tea one morning, I noticed how nice the pineapple foundation pieced wall hanging looked next to a real pineapple she had on her counter. That got me to thinking about how I taught her, and one of her friends, how to quilt that pineapple piece some years ago.
Well, one quilty thought led to another, and before long, I was photographing a number of the many quilts she has in her home, made by either herself, me, or another family member.
Following is a brief tour of some of them. Starting in the downstairs bedroom, which is where we sleep when we visit, are these two wall hangings. The butterfly one I made many years ago, and the colorful diamond one was made by my daughter for one of her twin step-daughters.

Monkeys and palm trees decorate the jungle themed downstairs bath. This pattern was made up by my daughter using many yellow fabrics for the background, and a 3-D leaved palm tree complete with button coconuts.

Here is the pineapple foundation quilt that started it all.

I've added a linky tool below in case you would like to share a quilt that you've made.
Happy Quilting ♥
