I thought it would be a good idea to start listing the various types of paper that people use when they are paper piecing.  Personally I prefer newsprint over anything else.  I bought a case from…Continue

Sobana, I looked today and apparently the only way I could send you anything from EQ7 is if you also had the program.  Of course, if that was the case you would just print them yourself.  You might be able to just go in to a search engine and type in "pineapple quilt block" and find a pattern for them that way.

Thanks Connie (I promise I won't say a word about the mug rug), Sobana & Debbi.  Sobana, I printed these off my own computer using EQ7.

Janet - I love the pineapple blocks! They are so fun to make! And, paper piecing them ... so easy!

Janet do you have a link for the pineapple block - paper pieced of course. Looks great and I have never made one.

I paper pieced leaves for the mug rug swap I'm participating in. It was fun to do it again and didn't take me as long to catch on this time. Ssh.... Amanda and Janet....don't tell the others!

Thanks Amanda & Ally.  Years ago I bought a pineapple ruler that was supposed to make these blocks so easy to do. Most confusing thing I have ever tried to use so I was so happy when I became comfortable with doing paper piecing.  Each block took less than 30 minutes to make.  One of these days I'm going to make a bed sized quilt from pineapple blocks using only scraps.  Just won't promise when.  LOL

Janet love the pineapple blocks, pp is my favourite. Have a pattern for a scrappy pp table runner, must get into my scraps they are beginning to take over.

Very pretty pineapples, Janet!

I haven't paper pieced since I made those first two Harry Potter blocks, way back in the beginning of the year, two blocks done out of 36, not very good results! Who knows if I will ever get back to that.

Gosh, this group has gotten so quiet again.  I just paper pieced 4 pineapple blocks for a row robin I'm in.  That is such an easy way to make that block.  Here is a pic of it:

I keep telling myself to stop working on so many things at the same time, but then something grabs my attention & away I go.  I signed up for a needleturn applique' workshop through my guild for next Tues & haven't even started to gather up my supplies yet.  It is on a way to transfer the design to the background fabric w/out marking so it should be an interesting class.
