    I was at the quilt store yesterday and a lady had a quilt she had made with 8 pineapples. The pineapples were made from Batik fabric scrap strips. (She had purchased the fabric on a trip to Hawaii.) I couldn't get close enough to see whether they were strip blocks or an applique made with strips of fabric. The pineapples were about 8-10 inches high. This was not the traditional quilt block pattern.

    I have seen strips, small sqares, and diamond shapes sewn together and then cut the shape of a pineapple and appliqued with the leaves. Makes neat looking blocks.

    I haven't made a quilt like this, just have seen pictures of other people's work from time to time--usually tabletoppers or runners.

    Take a look at www.quiltpassions.net and then go to this site.
    There is a pineapple pattern (out of stock now) but may be what you are looking for. [http://barbarabieraugeldesigns.com/c...hp?category=64]

    We did that as a class when I still had my own quilt shop. The pineapples are done like a french braid and then applique the pineapple and leaves on a block. It was alot of fun for the customers...they really enjoyed it.

    Using "search" you will find numerous tutorials or pictures of pineapple blocks & appliques. What fun you will have with this - I will love to see your quilt. My strips are resting in their box.

    Thank you all--I was able to order the pattern today. I'll have fun using up batik scraps; the pattern looks pretty fun and easy.
