    Just measured them. They finish at 6.75! Thank you! For you people who don't need a tute, sew the scrap on, measure 1", cut the strip, sew the next scrap on and repeat.

    :-D

    If you do a tutorial, that is the only way I would ever do a pineapple quilt.

    Just sign me,
    Hopeful
    Dear Hopeful! When the tute comes out, you will be on your way to a beautiful pineapple quilt of your own!! It was all by trial and error. I just had to come up with a way to do this besides PP. We all want a fast block! We want to see a Pineapple quilt finished within our lifetime! Who in the world wants to spend an hour on a block? The nice side to this is we all have the strips leftover from projects just waiting for this block!! Let's put them to good use!! And without a huge investment of time that none of us really have. I like the wonky part of this. We spend enough time trying to match up so now let us let loose!! haha. I love your avatar and your poochies are just adorable!! No, I'm no quilting genius -- just someone who's looking for a faster/better way of doing some things. Thank you for your most encouraging and complimentary words!~ Looking forward to seeing YOUR easy/peazy pineapple one day!

    :D :D

    Thank you so much, ScrapQuilter! Yes, my avatar pattern link is in the signature area of my avatar! Just click on it and it'll take you to the pattern. Then you can back up to page 1, scroll down to picture #5, and you'll see 'Charm Mini No.1." Then you'll see 'Charm Mini No.2." Both minis were made with the same pattern as my avatar mini. You'll have to try them both ways -- one on point and one upright! You're like me == scrap quilts are the BEST!!

    :-D :-D

    Thank you so much, Harmony, for those nice comments! I've been wanting to do a Pineapple quilt but never would PP one! I just simply had to come up with a faster way to do one! We want to be able to use it and see it finished in our lifetime!! haha. And there are just so many other wonderful blocks we want to try that we can't possibly spend huge amts. of time on a pineapple. I guess that's why things are developed/created. lol. I like the fact that it doesn't all line up and it doesn't have to. It's beautiful wonky or easy peazy. Will get right to work on that tute tomorrow!! I have 14 more blocks I want to do to make it 7 x 9 so will just take pics along the way!

    :D Can't wait to see your beautiful Pineapple quilt! I saw an antique one done in 1895 made entirely or silks, brocades and taffetas and strips were 1/4" wide. It was gorgeous! Selling for the same as the yr it was made $1895! :-D :-D ;)

    Thank you, earthwalker! I'll PM you when I post the tut!! I'm so in love more with my sherbert colored corners ~ haha~ than the block itself. I just hope I can get it together with unmatching corners! We always try to match everything up -- a complete reverse this time!

    :-D :-D ;-) ;-)
