October 12 month Bee Block

Name: Heather P.

Name of Block: Pineapple Block

Link to Block Tutorial:

Color Selection:
Super Scrappy with bright colors. No Browns or blacks. Triangles can be white or white on white

Please name some designers or line of fabrics you like that will help us pick the right fabric for your block:

Will you be providing fabric:

The link has two templates. One for paper piecing and one for cutting each piece. I chose the paper piecing. For the white triangles I cut 5.5 squares and cut diagonally. For the strips I cut them 3 inches wide. I have found with paper piecing that it is easier to over estimate the size of the piece needed and then to trim down. Make sure the test square is 1 inch when you print. I had to increase the size by 18% to make the square one inch. I will be handing out copies of the templates at the next meeting so you don't have to mess with printing them. I can also mail copies to those not at the meeting. This block took me about 2 hours to complete.
