Trash to Treasure Pineapple Quilts
by Gyleen X. Fitzgerald.

Who said you can’t make something from nothing? Find inspiration in turning your scraps and stash into dynamic contemporary one of a kind Pineapple Quilts. Easy basic instructions plus seven incredible designs which span from mosaic to stylized traditional; all bounding blasts of color using scraps and what’s in your stash!

For an accurate approach to making stress free pineapple blocks without the use of paper piecing, try my new Pineapple tool. Engineered by a quilter with a quilter in mind! This tool has just enough markings to keep your blocks perfectly square round to round and fuss free. Makes an 8” finished pineapple block.

“I do like the tool. I've not tried the other pineapple rulers, but I've been saying that I believe yours to be very well engineered. I felt that my blocks were accurate as can be for not being foundation pieced, which is how I would have approached doing these blocks. I'm all about the accuracy!” … Barbara

“I got the ruler and Oh my goodness! It is so much easier than the others I’ve tried. Yours does not have a lot of extraneous, confusing lines that I didn't use anyway. Even without the instructions you had sent us earlier, I think I could have figured it out on my own; it is so simple.” … Gwen

“It's an addiction. I have been up till 1:30, 2:15 and 3:40 AM the past three nights and each time had to pull myself away from the pineapple saying, just a few more, just a few more!” … Mary Jo

"The ruler is well marked and has very clear directions that allow for accuracy every time! The fact that it is a square is extremely useful!" … Beth
