    Some folks have been asking about the strip pieced method to do this block. With some help from my favorite feline, this is what I came up with.

    This is just a test to make sure font is not too small.

    Pineapples are a great old-time hospitality symbol.

    The basic sequence for the rest of the block stays the same.
    * Add sides, press and square
    * Add top and bottom, press and square
    * Mark centers on each edge
    * Cut in preparation for next layer

    More darks, then more lights - the pineapples start to be revealed

    Each layer pulls you in more visually and adds movement
