Friday PJ party starting NOW!! 7:00 Minnesota time Sign In/Join

Welcome everyone to the Friday night PJ party. I will be showing a super simple way to make pineapple blocks.

I’ll start posting the steps in 15 minutes. Let me know if I’m going too fast or too slow.

In case you didn’t see the notice on Sunday or didn’t get time to get everything prepared, here is a quick recap of what you need. 2 squares – 2 1/2”, one square each; 2 3/4”, 3 1/8”, 3 5/8”, 4 3/8”, 5 3/8” and 6 3/4”, pencil and ruler and fabric scissors.

If you’re just getting it together now, draw two diagonal lines from corner to corner on each block except the center 2 1/2” one.

Make a VERY SMALL snip one the line of each block. If you forget, this can be done later, but it is much easier to do ahead of time.

quiltingwifey can't be with us tonight but she has made this block. She used her rotary cutter rather than drawing the lines, and cut an X in each block to within 1" of the corner.

It might be helpful to show the picture of the two finished blocks so newbies to the thread will know what they look like and be able to figure what fabric to cut what sizes.

I'm here with my chocolate cupcake and fruit punch to help me thru the nite, teach.

Ladies, start your machines!!!!

First step, place your two 2 ½” squares, right sides together and stitch ¼” around all four sides. When making a lot of these you can chain stitch one side of a bunch, chain stitch another side, etc.

If you have not already drawn your lines, draw two diagonal lines from corner to corner on the first piece, not the center piece.


Keep calm and carry on

Yup! ready for the irons, don't burn your fingers.

Open triangles and gently press the triangles away from the center square.

I think it's because of the pie crust. I think it's better than the apples. Oh my goodness! Lard rules!!!!

Ooooh! Crumbs on my blouse. Another crunchie or two to eat. Big Grin
