    Super shortcut block!

    I have never seen this before and I'm not sure if the author of this tutorial came up with it or borrowed it, but, it would make a super fast and cute quilt!

    There is a book ... can't remember the name, but it is something Pineapple that shows this technique and has projects. Have done it and it is fun to do!

    Thanks for this! I hate paper piecing and it's a great way to make pineapple blocks. Will give it a whirl.

    Thanks, Sandy!
    I think this would be a great way to do fast blocks for charity quilts (Project Linus comes to mind).
