|My Finished Paper Pieced Pineapple Block with border added|
The pattern I liked was by Kathleen Brown After finding a 6" block design that I liked I printed it out several times. I choose my colors from my fat quarters and cut 1" strips from my light and dark fabric. Then I measured the middle section and cut out my center to match (always adding 1/4" seam allowance all around. I used my glue stick to adhere it to the unprinted side face up. Placed my #2 fabric face down the ctr fabric and pinned it, flipped it over and sewed on the line. I used a short stitch ( that makes it esier to take off the paper when finished. I repeated for the other three positions then I flipped it to the fabric side and I finger pressed open # 1 fabric using a cool tool from Clover.
I measured each succeeding line, adding 1/2" for seam allowance (1/4"each side), cutting 4 of each length for the following row. Before pinning them down I trimed off excess fabric
