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.

I enjoyed watching this and her scrap quilting class very much. I have the pineapple tool on order and can't wait for it to get here. Her class is very creative and fun. I think this will be a fun way to play with scraps.

I don't know when I have enjoyed an on-line class more. I love pineapple quilts and Gyleen, with her creativity has opened up a whole new avenue for me. I found her ruler to be the most accurate and easy to use of any ruler I have used in the past. Her directions are enjoyable and easy to follow. Thank you Gyleen!

Loved the class, found it very interesting. learned a lot about the pineapple block and its different methods of doing it, chunk and framing. Gyleen is very clear and easy to follow, and not overly exacting thus making quilting fun. She made the class very enjoyable. Thanks Gyleen.
