Pineapple Trim Tool

I love log cabin quilts and have made quite a few but I never thought I could make a pineapple log cabin block.  Thanks to Creative Grids for another great tool to make our piecing easier.

I followed a pattern for fabric selection and colour placement.  This runner is all fruit colours in light and dark Kona cotton.  We have the border fabric used in the pattern photo.  I can imagine doing a 2, 3 or 4 colour block for a larger quilt top.  It was that easy and accurate!

Google 'pineapple quilt images' and see what you can make.  There is a new book on order all about pineapple quilts.  Watch for it too.  Hmm, maybe a scrappy one with all the little leftovers?
