pineapple blocks

It was time to start a few more pineapple blocks. The ones I had been working on had reached the size I wanted. I try to keep a few going so that I will remember how to make them. I don't like that I have to reacquaint  myself if I wait too long to work on them. These blocks started as a gifted bag of scraps more here.

The second row is easy to trim. I can cut both sides before I move the template.

I am ready for the neutral row.

  1. Hi Maggie! What a cool ruler. I've only seen pineapple blocks made via paper piecing, which is not my favorite thing. These are coming together so nicely plus what a fabulous way to use up that gifted scrap bag. Thank you for linking up today! Happy Thanksgiving to you and your family. ~smile~ Roseanne

  2. I admire your resourcefulness. But I can't imagine completing the blocks without paper piecing. Even then it was a lot of putsy work. ( I made a whole bunch and even exchanged them with my guild only to find out that the pattern was not square. )

  3. Looks fun and easy! You've got quite a few super nice projects in the works!

  4. How do you keep up with all the scrappy projects you've got going. Do you keep scraps for a specific project in a bag or box so you know you've got the right sizes for the right projects?

  5. That ruler looks SEW helpful for this project. Keep at them!

  6. Lightbulb moment! A specialty ruler to make this block is just what I need - I am definitely googling this product! I have more scraps then I can deal with and this is the perfect project, thanks for sharing.
