    My 9 year old granddaughter, who is learning disabled, found a quilt titled Pineapple Passion by Larisa Key in the October 2001 issue of Quick & Easy Quilting that she asked me to make for her. I couldn't find instructions for it on the website as stated in the ad (the ad is almost 10 years old) and couldn't find it on line anywhere.
    It was offered free in an ad for Endless Possibilities fabric collection by Classic Cotton. I know how to make pineapple quilts but notice that in this one the triangles on each corner get larger as they go outward from the center. Any possibility that you have it in your files somewhere or can direct me to a copy? Thanks, Ann Key, Afton, TN

    I am posting the original photo from the ad for the free pattern. As you can see it is similar to the patterns above but each corner triangle cuts into the tip of the triangle below it. I suppose I could use the pattern referenced above and simply sew the corners on a little deeper into the triangle below it but am trying to figure out how much each one would have to be increased.

    The last two will definitely get me where I need to go. Thank you so much! When she said she wanted a black quilt I kind of cringed but then she found this one and I was relieved. I thought it was very pretty and she promised she wouldn't outgrow it. I have 10 grandchildren and 3 of them have requested quilts this summer. I told them maybe they would get them by the time they graduated from high school. The oldest one is 9. Maybe I have time to get them all done. Ann

    That's actually just an optical illusion in the Pineapple in the link above). Those corner triangles are all the exact same size.
    It is a pineapple block, but a different version.

    The diagram below is the standard pineapple, and the corners DO get larger. But you can see there are no points until the last round.

    eta: And it looks like this is the same as the quilt photo above. The trick is just laying out the colors for each block.

    Perhaps I'm misunderstanding what you said, but the triangles in the quilt pictured above that the OP is looking for definitely get larger. It's not an illusion.

    You did misunderstand.

    I was not referring to the picture, but to the link posted upthread - as I stated. The triangles are NOT bigger.

    The diagram I supplied matches the blocks in the quilt picture upthread. And they don't have triangles in the corners.


    And here's that block in a layout. Of course, I'm using the same blocks over and over, where in the actual quilt, depending on how many colors, you really have to map it all out before you start.

    Gorgeous! And thank you for taking the time to do this. She wants it done in shades of blues and greens with a black background. I am going to try and see if she would agree to some yellow also. She says "Just promise me no pink". I may be forced to go out and buy some fabric. Fortunately the Knoxville Quilt show is this week so I should have plenty of choices. Thank you again, Ann
