When I saw this I was absolutely mesmerized by the beauty of it! I just had to see how this was made so I could make one. This is unlike any quilt I’d ever seen any of my family members make, and I grew up around quilters.
The beauty of pineapple quilt blocks is the wide variety of color schemes you can choose when composing them.
Pineapple quilts may look complicated, but they’re fairly easy to make. Similar to courthouse step patterns, pineapple quilts are a variation of the classic log cabin quilt block.
What gives pineapple blocks their distinct look are their angles, although they are constructed similarly to log cabins: with a square center and strips, along with triangles, radiating outward.
Pineapple quilt blocks are also often paper pieced, to give their strips precise and sharp edges. Whether you use basic strip quilting techniques or more complicated paper piecing, the versatile pineapple block is a sweet design that I was unable to resist!
I’ve been working on the blocks off and on for a few months. I love my quilt so far, and just like I had hoped, it keeps getting better as I add to it! That’s always the fun thing about making quilts like this…just watching it unfold as you make progress. I mean, after all, that’s what keeps us going, right?
