Pineapple Crush

I have always loved pineapple quilts. You might say I have a crush on them. Last year I bought a ruler and took a class on how to make this great block. I made one block and it sat in a bin for a year.

Well I took it out recently. I cut a bunch of black centers and assembly lined that bunch into blocks.

Now I have enough to start my walk down lovers lane.

  4. What great blocks Em...love 'em! I have that Pineapple ruler from years and years back. Had the book but sold it to a needy friend. I did make my Autumn Pineapple when I first got it, and a couple of 9 block wall hangings. I had my usual problem with things not matching up, and haven't gone back to make more.
    I do love your scrappy one though, and think they will be an awesome quilt. Great pics too! Hugs, Finn

  6. You may not believe this but I've never made a pineapple block. Weird huh. Especially because I like them.

  7. Love your blocks! So colourful and scrappy. I made a pineapple block once using the paper piecing method. I am curious as to how you do them with a special ruler.

  9. Well - it must be something in the air! Separated by the Atlantic, but united in sewing tropical Pineapples! I just did one for my sampler quilt!
