These Pineapple Blocks are So Easy to Make
Make as Many as You Need for a Quilt of Any Size!
One of the things we love about Jenny Doan from Missouri Star Quilt Co. is her enthusiasm about all things quilting. But we’ve never seen her as excited as she is about this method for making Pineapple blocks.
Using her technique you can create beautiful Pineapple blocks without paper piecing. You don’t even need to sew very accurately. Each block is squared up after every round, resulting in nice, square blocks that sew together beautifully.
Jenny used solid fabrics for her version but prints will be lovely too. Start with pre-cut 1 1/2″ skinny strips and 5″ charm squares for quick construction. Or, cut your own strips and squares if you prefer.
The secret to her foolproof construction method is the Creative Grids Trim Tool. You’ll find the standard and mini sizes here.
Watch as Jenny demonstrates the process in the video below.

You are the best Jenny.

Why couldn’t we use the big block for a center piece on a quilt? It is gorgeous! Then do another patern to finish.
Or put separating strips to divide each Pineapple block from the other Pineapple squares? For me it is to busy when they all run together.
