    I've used this method several times. It's certainly easy and quick but be aware that all the edges are on the bias. Starch would help. Here's a picture of one of mine. I added sashing to stabilise the bias edges.

    Another very simple set of simple instructions for the pineapple block is Elenor Burns.... Hers uses strips around a 4 patch, very easy. I made a full size quilt in a day.

    I love videos because it makes it SO easy to understand.
    When it seems like the world is falling to pieces remember that the pieces are falling into place. We are nearing closer to the End Times.

    When I was introduced to this it was QOV and it was called exploding Pineapples. The rule that I heard, is that you have to put the fabric to be cut on top. The fabric isn't the exact size as the bottom, so this is the way it works. I think it is a very smart adaptation.

    The tute for this has been on this board for a long time.http://www.quiltingboard.com/tutoria...oo-t14958.html

    Most pineapple patterns do have the points squared off.
