    Hi All,

    Sometime in the last 2 or 3 years I seem to recall seeing an easy method for making the pineapple block in one of my magazines (at least I think it was in a magazine). I've gone through all of my past issues and couldn't find it. It's not paper-piecing. I'm not too crazy about paper-piecing... Does this ring a bell with anyone?

    Thanks for any help you can provide.

    The way I learned was to strip piece like a log cabin, using the 45* angle on your ruler to square up the alternate strips. Once you do it, you will see how easy it really is.
