Pineapple…the Fruit, a free 5″ paper pieced pattern
You might know by now that I have a bit of a love affair with pineapples. I knew this day would come eventually. I have designed my a pineapple block.
But this one, this block? It’s special. It’s not intended to be a traditional pineapple quilt block, it’s intended to look like the fruit.
When I teach Intro to Paper Piecing, I use a traditional, paper pieced pineapple, this pineapple, in fact:
I eat them. I grow them. A make quilt blocks named after them out of fabric. It’s a sickness, really.
I even made a video showing how to cut them up.
It seems fitting somehow that I design a pineapple quilt block that looks like an actual pineapple!

Thank you to the YouTube commenter that requested this pattern. I don’t often do requests, but this is a special case. Not only do I love pineapples myself, but it’s not the first time I’ve been asked for this exact thing.
