    Has anyone heard of a pattern called PINEAPPLES. I saw it demonstrated today and was very impressed. Is it as easy as it looked?

    No, the one I saw had no piecing. It was all done in squares. I just ordered the book from Amazon and want to try the sample I saw. It was georgeous.

    This is it, except instead of cutting the triangles, the demo I saw faced the squares, sewed all around the square, cut the triangles after the sewing and turned it inside out. It had the same effect.

    Thank you for your information. I saved it and I'll try it.

    I saw this demonstrated yesterday too. Have shied away from pineapple block because of waste, but this was a great way to do it. Going to try it soon.

    The pattern June gave link to I know as 'square within a square' and the one tirnhi gave is known as athe Pineapple block. I have made several of the latter and they are really fun. Using your printer reduce/enlarge mode, you can make the squares any size you want.

    Hope we have helped and not hindered.

    I just sat down and did a couple of them. They turned out nice. I started with a 3" square and am now at a 5" square in a different color.
    I always hated using triangles as I could never match them right. This is ieasy, BUT, I wouldn't want to do a whole quilt like that.

    Here is a pineapple quilt a friend of mine made and I quilted for her a couple of years ago, but it was paper pieced, no blocks. I have the pattern for it around here somewhere.

    Yes, but this is not the same thing as I am talking about. The one I am referring to is made up of squares and triangles and don't look like Pineapples. I don't know why they call it that.

    I just found a pattern for a Pineapple quilt by Darlene Zimmerman and fell in love with it. It is done in reds and whites and would be beautiful for Christmas. I was wondering if there are any hints or tricks anyone can share with us.

    ozarkgal, that is a pretty quilt!

    Gilla, I have seen what you are talking about...either in a tute here, on board, or on tv. Hmmm, fill my head with so much quilty stuff, if I didn't copy, paste, bookmark, etc. I'd lose my head! It's a really great technique isn't it?
    It surely is on my bucket list...just can't see the bottom of the bucket anymore :lol:

    I got so exited I couldn't even spell right,, or else my fingers slipped. It is a good thing that I am on my own computer or I would have a fight on my hands. I spent almost all day yesterday going over information on this forum. Luve y'all in spite of it. LOL

    Thanks ladies. I'm glad you enjoyed the picture, just to be on the up & up, that quilt was made by my friend 'Mary' in California. I only did the quilting.

    I ordered some fabrics from fabric.com Saturday and I received notice today that it is already shipped. Now where am I going to put it? My dining room table is so loaded with scraps, I can't move. We have to eat on easy chairs in the living room. I don't want to buy any more fabrics for a while, but I don't have enough material to finish the one I bought a few days ago. Am I an addict?
