Today’s block is a very popular Pineapple block. I’ve meant to do a foundation piecing block for a while so here it is.
The block is 7″ x 7″ finished.

Foundation piecing paper
I used regular copy paper but you may find it to be a bit thick.
You can use special paper for foundation piecing if you prefer.
Foundation paper ruler
Note: I recently started to use an Add a quarter ruler, the yellow ruler in the video, after some followers recommended it and I have to say it’s a true time saver.

“Turnabout Patchwork. Simple quilts with a twist” is all about playing with blocks – making a block, slicing it up, and turning or repositioning the pieces to make a completely different block (sometimes two smaller blocks) to yield endless quilt tops.
