It's Finished!

Here it is! My finished mini pineapple quilt! Each block has 45 pieces and finishes at 2" square! Don't look too close - it was a challenge for me, but from far away it looks ok. I love it!

SENSATIONAL! Congratulations - it really looks wonderful - and having made a 6" pinapple block quilt - I know how tiny those pieces must be. Well done - you should be so proud of yourself!
