    How do you make this quilt (can't figure out where the blocks are)?

    I really really like the 3rd quilt down (the floral blue, green, yellow and red one). Do you know what the pattern is or what the block is? I can't figure out if it is on point or where the block is?

    The third one looks like "Pineapple" to me. http://www.quilterscache.com/P/Pineapple2Block.html

    It is a pineapple block along with a square and then a half square triangle. I saw a tutorial on this just this week, but for the life of me I can't remember where. Good Luck!

    Lots of beautiful quilts on that site. I'm sure it is a pineapple.

    Yes, it's a pineapple quilt. Can be done either with strips or square-in-a-square technique.

    Good luck!

    That's it - just on the original quilt, the person used a 1 piece triangle for the corners instead of them being pieced with strips. Haven't thought of the pineapples for awhile - hhmmmmmmm

    What I do when I find a quilt I want to figure out; I print the photo , enlarge it, then trace the individual pieces for the block on it. that really simplifies it. This would be a good pattern for any of those great HST methods

    Or, you could look at this as a snowballed square within a square, within a square, within a square. Maybe this colorway will help you see it.

    there are 2 distinct blocks on point. One is a very simple pineapple and the other half square triangle. Draw it out on graph paper and I am sure you can figure it out

    To identify any quilt, look at a corner. Check the left corner on this quilt. It's bounded by large triangles: starting from the bottom right and going clock wise the triangle colors are yellow, green red and teal (this corner forms a secondary pattern all comprised of teal).
    Best wishes with your quilting. It's a lovely quilt.

    This quilt is made up of all identical blocks. The blocks are a pineapple pattern. The colors have the same placement in each block. The effect is made up by rotating the block every time. Really neat pattern.

    Jan's layout is the pattern used.

    Here is the pineapple block. It is the same block just turned to make the corners match.

    I love all the things I learn here. This is great, the pattern and how Jane showed us the block. I think this one is going on my list.

    here is a link to make this block. It is very easy to do, and I posted it on the tutorial last week. She has other tutorials on facebook to. It is the sew easy method. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=J3bejYQ4Oaw

    This is what I thought of. It would be easy to do this way.

    Thank you to everyone for your help. Daisy Dew, you found the exact pattern used. I am so excited. I also watched the youtube on the making of this quilt and it looks interesting. I am wondering how accurate that method is (I usually have the most success squaring up my blocks at regular intervals to keep them square and the right measurement).
