Though this pattern was originally pieced from many different fabrics, Nancy suggested that it "is far prettier if the blocks are made uniformly of two colors."
There is a scrappy version and a two color version of the Colonial Pineapple quilt at the Quilt Index. I really like this one too. I would love to post the photos instead of providing a link but I can't. The Quilt Index does not allow you to post their images without permission and I don't have the time or energy to ask them for permission for every photo I would like to show you.
This is another block that I did not make because I don't want it for my sampler quilt. I did make a paper pieced pattern for the Colonial Pineapple block however which you can download here if you want to make the block as a 6" block.
The Pineapple block is still a very popular block today. I love this Perky Pineapple quilt from Inspired Layers-
This block is so popular that you can find many ways to make it-
Here's a free pattern from Eleanor Burns of Quilt in a Day-
Here's a video showing how to make a Pineapple block using 2 1/2" wide strips also known as a jelly roll. It's called Pineapple Jelly.
Here's a free paper pieced pattern from Quilter's Cache for a 15" block. There are also templates available here to make it in the more traditional way.
Here's a video demonstrating a very different modern approach to making the Pineapple block called Pineapple Plus.
Here's a written tutorial showing how to make the block a little wonky.
There are even more ways to make this block and several books and patterns available. Do a little research to find which technique you might like to try!
