These Oversized Blocks Have Many Uses!
Do you love Pineapple blocks but dread the idea of paper piecing? While these wonderful blocks are often paper pieced (instructions here), they can also be made without the paper.
The process is similar to making a Log Cabin block. Amanda Jean from Crazy Mom Quilts has written an excellent tutorial showing you how.
Her block is about 16″ square (unfinished), making it a nice size for a mini quilt. Or combine several blocks for a quilt of any size.
You also have the option of omitting the squares in the corners, leaving an octagonal block that can be finished off as a table topper.
PLEASE NOTE: Quilting Digest has featured many patterns from vendors participating in the Craftsy Marketplace, most of which have been deleted by Craftsy. It's going to take awhile for us to hunt down new sources for those patterns. In the meantime there are many links to patterns on our site that no longer work. We apologize if this article contains one or more of those links and appreciate your patience while we straighten things out. Thank you!
PLEASE NOTE: Quilting Digest does not sell or otherwise provide patterns directly. We showcase patterns and projects from various vendors, bloggers and other sources. Please make a note of where you access a pattern (the link in the yellow box toward the end of each Quilting Digest article). That way you can contact Support for that source if you have downloading problems or other issues. Thank you!
