Pinapple Block Workshop - pic

I took a Pineapple workshop given by Nancy Bills.
She is a delightful person and a very good instructor.If you ever have the chance, take her workshop.

Since I have never made a "real" Pineapple block before, I can't compare her method, but I will say it is different than any I have read, and the results are great, as long as you measure precisely when you trim, and press-press-press!
I made the one block in the class, and the other 3 blocks at home (yikes! on my own following her instructions and my notes). Since I have no more of the fabric, this will be a table topper for my dining room table. It is perfect for under the Waterford Crystal bowl I have.
I still need to quilt & bind it. I am not sure how to quilt it. Stitch in the Ditch is out.

I love your pineapples! You did a great job. Does she sell books/patterns or the rulers she mentions?

Wow - that is beautiful! I may have to add that to my list of "I wanna makes".

Let us know how you end up quilting it - I think that would be a challenge.

That is beautiful. The only pineapple patterns I've really looked at were paper-pieced. Yours looks just as precise.

That is lovely.It will look great with the crystal bowl. You did a wonderful job.
Thanks for the link. I am in the process of turning the binding on a Pineapple Blossom quilt but that's not the same pattern. I am going to check out Nancy's site.
TFS.
