Pineapple Twist Wall Quilt

A square and cross pattern takes center stage on this wall hanging, which contains four Pineapple blocks. Using the same teal ombré print for the rectangles in the inner border and the strips on four sides of the blocks allows the brighter fuchsia, red-orange, and yellow strips to form the pattern. Fabrics are from the September Light collection by Lida Enche for In the Beginning Fabrics.

Assemble Block Centers

1. On the wrong side of each purple print 3-1/2" square, use a pencil to draw diagonal, horizontal, and vertical lines across the center (Diagram 1). Take care that these lines are exact; they will help you trim the blocks and keep the blocks square when adding the succeeding rings to block centers.

2. Use a pencil to draw a diagonal line on wrong side of all mottled orange 2" squares.

3. Referring to Diagram 2, align marked mottled orange squares with opposite corners of a marked purple print square. Sew on marked lines. Trim seam allowances to 1/4". Open attached mottled orange triangles and press seams toward mottled orange. In same manner, add marked mottled orange squares to remaining corners to make a block center (Diagram 2). The block center should be 3-1/2" square including seam allowances. Repeat to make four block centers total.
