Have you admired pineapple quilts but think they're too hard or have too many pieces? If so, then get ready to be amazed at how fun and easy pineapple quilts are to make! Join Gyleen Fitzgerald, known to many as the pineapple queen, as she teaches you how to make stress-free pineapple blocks!

In this video class, Gyleen demonstrates making both a traditional pineapple block and pineapple chunk block from start to finish. She'll teach you her exclusive method built for speed, using her pineapple tool. You'll soon be completing many quilt blocks in just one evening with her no-pinning, no-stress method. You'll also learn how to add a fussy-cut motif to the center of your pineapple block, and how to make a medallion quilt. As an added bonus, you'll discover how to jazz up your pineapple quilts with raw-edge fusible applique.

In this class you'll learn how to:
  • See the similarities between a log cabin block, pineapple block and pineapple chunk block.
  • Create beautiful secondary patterns with light and dark color variations.
  • Cut, piece and sew a traditional pineapple block from start to finish.
  • Sew an even faster variation called the pineapple chunk.
  • Use a fussy-cut piece for the center and round 1.
  • Replace blocks with a large pineapple medallion.
  • Jazz up your quilts with raw-edge applique.
  • Use Gyleen's amazing pineapple tool for easy and precise assembly and trimming.
Class includes complete instructions to make three exclusive pineapple quilt patterns: Hugs & Kisses bed quilt, the Ode to April wall hanging and Missing Letters wall quilt, plus a variation for creating a medallion quilt.

Gyleen has created an excellent class. Her instructions are very clear & easy to follow. Her enthusiasm shines through & I really enjoy her entertaining & engaging manner so much so that I have watched the class many times. I am looking forward to purchasing more of Gyleen's classes & would highly recommend them to those interested in quilting.

I would give this class 10 stars if I could. I have purchased 26 classes on another site that I do enjoy. And I have 4 here on Annie"s. I have not completed watching the whole class as I am too busy making Pineapple squares to finish it right now :)
This is the first class I have watched in all of them that I just had to stop what I was doing and try to make the blocks. I am on my fourth test block so far. Gyleen is such a wonderful teacher. Her enthusiasm and creativity are just great !! I want to take her other class, but need to watch the budget a bit. So hoping it will be reduced at some point so I can take that one too.

This class is absolutely "Brilliant" I was blown away by her skills in this area of quilting, my eyes never left the screen from beginning to the end. Now I am much more confident to make a (Pineapple Quilt) after watching Gyleen's class.
Thank you for excellent class, which I will be watching over and over again.
Truly the Pineapple Queen!

Great class. After the first few minutes, Gyleen seemed like a friend rather than a teacher. Her instructions were clear and easy to understand and her enthusiasm was contagious. Looking forward to more of her classes. Jeannie Young

I took Gyleen's class at the International Quilt festival in Houston last year and we had a blast! I purchased this class after festival to reinforce everything we went over in is awesome, just like having Gyleen as your personal instructor! If she is ever in your area teaching a class, sign up immediately, I can promise you, you will learn her innovative techniques and have so much fun while taking Gyleen's class! As a matter of fact, I loved her class so much, I signed up for another of her classes-Polygon Affair, the following day!
