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 Blocks


1. For one Pineapple block, gather one block center and the following strips: four each of teal ombré print positions 1, 3, 5, 7, and 9; one each of yellow print positions 2, 6, 10, and 12; one each of red-orange print No. 1 positions 2, 6, 10, and 12; one each of light green print No. 1 positions 2, 6, 10, and 12; one each of light orange print positions 2, 6, 10, and 12; one each of light green print No. 2 positions 4, 8, and 11; two each of fuchsia print positions 4, 8, and 11; and one each of red-orange print No. 2 positions 4, 8, and 11.

2. Referring to Diagram 3, sew teal ombré print position 1 strips to opposite edges of block center. Add teal ombré print position 1 strips to remaining edges. Press all seams away from block center.

3. With Step 2 unit facedown, align a 45º line of an acrylic ruler (red line on Diagram 4) with horizontal line on purple print square and a long ruler edge 1/4" beyond seam intersection. Using a rotary cutter and mat, trim along long ruler edge (Diagram 4). Repeat to trim remaining corners (Diagram 5).

4. Referring to Diagram 6, sew yellow print, red-orange print No. 1, light green print No. 1, and light orange print position 2 strips to long trimmed edges of Step 3 unit. Press all seams away from block center.

5. Referring to Diagram 7, with Step 4 unit facedown, align a horizontal line of acrylic ruler with horizontal line on purple print square. Slide ruler over until its right-hand edge aligns with a position 1 strip long edge; the ruler edge should be 1-1/4" from the previous stitching line. Trim along ruler right-hand edge. Repeat to trim remaining corners (Diagram 8). At this point, the block should be 5-1/2" square including seam allowances.

6. Referring to Diagram 9 for color placement and working in numerical order, repeat steps 4 and 5 to add each set of position 3–9 strips and trim them 1-1/4" from the previous stitching line. Press all seams away from block center. Use these guidelines to make sure your block is still the correct size: After adding rounds 3 and 4, the block should be 7-1/2" square including seam allowances; after rounds 5 and 6, it should be 9-1/2" square; and after rounds 7 and 8, it should be 11-1/2" square.

7. Referring to Diagram 10 for color placement and working in numerical order, repeat steps 4 and 5 to add each set of position 10–12 strips to corners of Step 6 unit to make a Pineapple block. Press all seams away from block center. After each strip is added, trim corners even with long edge of position 9 strip as before. The block should be 13-1/2" square including seam allowances.

8. Repeat steps 1–7 to make four Pineapple blocks total.
