Cutting exact size pieces from strips is easier, more efficient, and -- you will be surprised! -- more accurate than paper piecing Pineapple blocks! We've gone Pineapple crazy, and we think you will, too, once you try this method.
Cut strips the appropriate width. Then use the Pineapple Ruler to cut the exact size and shape of the graduated pieces. Use the triangle template to cut the center and corner trianlges. Sew the pieces together and press as you go. No paper to tear away! No squaring up after every set of strips is sewn! Very little waste. Perfect!
