The finished pineapple quilt top measures 56″X72″, a good sized throw quilt.
Above are the fabric requirements as generated by EQ7. Let’s break it down:
Background fabric (Aqua): 2 yds (I’m rounding up as I don’t normally order 1 + 5/8th yds)
Pineapple leaves (Bright green): .5yd
Pineapple leaves (Dark green): 1yd
Pineapple eyes (Gold): 2yds
Pineapple body (Yellow): 2yds
*Note: these fabric requirements do not account for biding and backing*
With this quilt along, you’ll have the choice of either paper piecing (foundation paper piecing) the pineapple body blocks, or traditional piecing. Tutorial for the traditional pieced blocks will be posted in week 2. For those of you who may be anxious to get started, here is the Hugh Jass Pineapple Block. You’ll need to make a total of 20 blocks (20 sets of A & B sections).
