Aloha Mom

The last of the quilts I've already completed is one I made for my mom for Mother's Day. She went back to school for another Master's this year, and being a mainland transplant from Hawaii, she's always cold, so I whipped up a quick tied throw for her to study with. The yellow pineapple and stripey blue fabrics were Hawaiian shirt from the thrift store (yay for 99 cent day!), and everything else came from my stash, except the flannel for the back. I tried hand quilting for the first time on the little pineapple motif, and I'm pleased with the result (as long as I don't look at the back!)
