Pineapple…the Fruit, A Free 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.

Add your Sewhooked photos to my flickr group and you might be featured in a future post!
