Pineapple quilts are among the most prized quilts owned and many people think they must be very difficult to make. Not any more! Cut accurate size pieces and sew an accurate 1/4 inch seam and in no time you will have a beautiful Pineapple quilt. We provide the tools for accurately cutting the pieces, including seam allowances.

The Pineapple block is considered a variation of Log Cabin because it is made with strips and made starting with a center square and working from the center out, one strip at a time. The number of “rounds” of strips will determine the finished size of the blocks. There is no “cast in concrete” number of rounds that need to be added to the center square to make it an “official″ Pineapple block, but we consider 3 rounds to be the minimum.

From Marti Michell is proud to introduce two Pineapple Ruler Sets; scroll down to see both. Each set features 2 multi-sizes pieces for cutting the graduated strips, center triangles and corner triangles. And we have downloadable Pineapple grid paper for you, too!

You will love the engineered corners that confirm that each strip fits perfectly and that your seam allowance is still accurate. There is no paper piecing, no trueing up after every seam or half round, and virtually no wasted fabric!

Pineapple Quilt BlocksIt may sound like there is not much difference between 1-inch and 1-1/4-inch finished strips, but let’s analyze a little. The 1-inch finished 12-inch block (shown in red) has 53 pieces, which is very attractive for a small wallhanging, table runner or pillow.

The 1-1/4-inch finished 12-1/2-inch block has 45 pieces (shown in blue). Eight pieces don’t sound like much until you are making blocks for a bed quilt -- multiply 8 by the number of blocks (30 to 48 or more, depending on borders) and think about the savings in fabric and time.
