    There is a book called "Sew Simple pineapple " by Karin Hellaby that is exactly what you're looking for. I taught a class on this technique and it's quick and easy. The only difference I found between this and a traditional pineapple block, is that in this one, the size of the side pieces increases as you get out from the center.. In a traditional pineapple block, the blades are all the same width.

    Here's one I made a long time ago, but finally got quilted last month. The colors don't have the best contrast in the world, but I was trying to use up some scraps. The centers have princesses and frogs.

    i think it might.
    if not, i'd bet that 3/8" on all sides would definitely do the trick.

    I love this tute. I think this might be my next quilt! Fortunately for me, I love wonky!
