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.
