The first thing that I would
recommend that you do, is go to the Practice
Paper Piecing Page. When you feel comfy with paper
piecing, come on back and try a Pineapple Star! You will need to print out
four copies of the template page per block you want to make on very
lightweight paper. Fat quarters should be plenty! You also need one
2-1/2" center square!
After your units are paper pieced, lay them out as shown with the
extra 2-1/2" square as the center. Sew three horizontal rows, and
then join the rows to finish your Pineapple Star Block!
Here on its side is a quilt of four blocks by
five, with plain and pieced borders!
