Pineapple Block

Today I am sharing with you the pineapple block for the "Early American Life" quilt I have been working on.  The pattern is actually designed for fusible applique but I am doing needle turn instead.  Towards the bottom of the pineapple, I joined  a couple sections together as they were such small pieces.  Other than that, I was able to needle turn the pineapple sections.  The quilt design is based on early American stencil designs.

Take a minute to visit Cathy's blog.  She is simplifying the block designs.  I was oh so tempted to do the same on this block.
