Scrappy Pineapple Quilt Block Tutorial

By August 28, 2020 Blog, Scrap Busting, Tutorials

I have made a couple scrappy Pineapple quilts in my time. My first was a class through a local quilt shop. It was so much fun that when I got carried away cutting strips with my Go Cutter. I found it a great solution in using them up. Thus my Tropicalia quilt was born. I’ve had so many people ask about making this quilt I thought it would be fun to create a Scrappy Pineapple block tutorial.

What you will need to create your own scrappy pineapple block are scrappy strips 1 3/4″ -2″ wide. I did use 1 1/2″ but there is no margin for error when doing this. So be advised. I cut mine with my Go strip cutter. This ensures they are accurately cut, the first step in quilting accuracy. You could also use a honey bun from Fat Quarter Shop. I hate cutting so both of these options appeal to me. But if cutting is something you don’t mind or even find relaxing then cut your own my all means.

You will also need a Pineapple ruler. This will make your block go together smoothly and accurately. It makes keeping everything square so much easier. Which will ensure the blocks go together correctly when you go to put them together in your quilt.

Also make sure to share your blocks and quilts with me via email, Instagram @emsscrapbag, or on my group Facebook page.


  • I already have a box full of 2″ strips! I could start one of these. And I do have a pineapple ruler but don’t know if it’s the same size as you used. I’ll worry about that later. Your quilt is beautiful, so bright and happy!

    I have the smaller size pineapple ruler on order and am amassing strips –so i think this will be a fun project for my Winter sewing…I watched your video–really neat presentation…very clear directions–I love that you showed just “how” to use the ruler…so often instructions are confusingly written….hugs, Julierose
