Make the Pineapple Block VariationMake 18 more pineapple quilt blocks, but replace the lightest gray triangles and strips with very dark triangles and strips (or as determined by your own layout choices).
Assemble the Pineapple Quilt
- Arrange the pineapple blocks side by side in seven rows, each row with five blocks. Alternate blocks are sewn next to each other, beginning with a block with dark corners in the upper left corner of the quilt. Refer to page 1 for the layout.
- Sew blocks in each row together and then sew rows together. Remove temporary foundations.
- Mark the quilt for quilting if necessary. Sandwich with batting and backing and machine quilt.
- Bind the pineapple quilt with doublefold mitered binding that finishes at 1/4" wide.
Pineapple Quilt with Identical Pineapple BlocksThe illustration on this page depicts a pineapple quilt with 35 identical pineapple blocks -- it looks very different than the quilt with block variations.
To make this quilt, you'll need more of the lightest gray fabric (about 1/2 yard more) and less of the darkest fabric (about 1/2 yard less).
