Pineapple Progress

Did you know that June 27 is Pineapple Day?

To celebrate, Fat Quarter Shop is hosting a Pineapple Block QAL - you can find a free pattern and video tutorial on their blog!

Pineapple blocks are really another version of a log cabin - similar construction techniques but the squaring up of the block before adding the next round of fabric is a bit trickier.  That is why I really like using Fat Quarter Shop's new foundation papers!   The foundation paper is available in a 6'' finished block size and a 12'' finished block size.

My quilt top is done - I made about 35 full pineapple blocks and then some partial ones.

I really love how it turned out - more photos coming soon ........ on Pineapple Day!!!

Have a wonderful day! Patty


  1. Congratulations on your new studio space! I can’t wait to see pictures. And your pineapple blocks are looking fantastic.

  2. Who knew ?? There seems to be a day for every thing :-) I am awaiting my 12" papers from Fat Quarter Shop--nothing to do with "Pineapple Day"--just on order :-)

  3. I'll have to check out those papers. Your pineapple blocks are very bright and pretty. Looking forward to the final reveal.


Thanks for visiting Elm Street Quilts. Looking forward to hearing from you!
