Didn't Elvis make a movie called "Blue Hawaii"??

Pineapples come from Hawaii.

So this could be Elvis's Squished Blue Pineapple.

I really like it and don't see it as squished or quirky at all.  Just unique and in my very favorite color, too!

Thanks all!  I certainly won't be doing another, not even the right way.

We go home to visit tomorrow, I was hoping to finish a wall hanging for my mom.  I have done something horrendous to my tension and haven't been able to figure it out.  My stitches are really really tiny.  Like really tiny.  Don't think I will finish tonight.

There's all those blue pieces!  Why do you say "squished"?  Lots of pieces in that one.

Because it isn't right.  I had to make some things super wonky to get it square and instead of figuring out how to do it right, I just kept going.  Around block 10 or so, I did figure it out.  Then I didn't remember how big my strips were and I think along the way somewhere I changed the size a bit.  Due to that, my  blocks were too big so I had to trim them up.  However, they weren't a full strip too big so many of the edges have partial strips.  Many, but not all.  Therefore....squished pineapples!

I didn't see that in your picture.  Maybe I would if I saw the quilt up close.  I think it looks fine and obviously there was a lot of work involved.
