Pineapple Log Cabin Quilt Block

By:

Put a modern spin on the traditional log cabin block with this Pineapple Log Cabin Quilt Block. This version is free pieced with stitch and flip triangles to create the fun pattern. Make your next quilt stand out with this creative quilting tutorial.



Materials:

  • 2 squares of fabric that are the same size - I went with a 6" block to start with. You can start with smaller or larger blocks - you just need 2 of the same size.

Instructions:

  1. Line them up, right sides facing and sew a 1/4" seam around the entire outside of the square. I found it was helpful to do two opposite sides first (like top and bottom) and then do the other two sides.
     
  2. Take your ruler and draw a line diagonally from one edge to the other edge. You want to draw the lines on the fabric that is going to be your corners (not your center fabric).


     
  3. Repeat on opposite corners so you have a big x across the squares.
     
  4. Now take your scissors and, starting from the center, cut down the lines toward the edges, stopping at the seam line.


     
  5. You will have four triangular flaps that you can iron flat.
     
  6. Trim block - I trimmed mine to be 7.5" but you just want to trim it so that all sides are even.


     
  7. Now you can add another layer the same way.
     
  8. You will now cut a square that is 7.5" (or whatever size your block ended up being) and repeat all the steps. I did three layers with these blocks and my blocks ended up at 9.5".


     
  9. You can keep going and make really big blocks or start smaller and make small blocks - it's so easy to adapt this block!
