Pineapple Blocks

About the Event

Take a step-by-step quilting workshop with artist Julia McLeod on how to make this classic, pineapple quilt block using the technique of foundation piecing. A printed muslin foundation serves as your guide to accuracy as you sew along the lines. The foundation stays in place - no need to tear anything out like with paper piecing.

In this 3-hour class, Julia will also share a short slide show illustrating the history of the pineapple block, and the many ways that color choices can create dramatically different effects.

You'll be provided with:

  • One panel of Benartex's Foundation by the Yard which gives you twelve, 10" finished Pineapple blocks*
  • A supply list of suggested fabrics, colors and cutting instructions
  • A pdf document of step by step directions to complete the block

This workshop will be recorded and will be made available to class participants for 2 weeks following the lesson.

Skill level: ✂️✂️

You have a few projects under your belt. You aready know how to thread and use a sewing machine and you're ready to learn more advanced basics. This class is for the patient, confident quilter. The block is not technically difficult but does take a little time and attention to detail.

About the instructor: 

Julia McLeod has been sewing and quilting for decades but three years ago narrowed her focus to making quilts from silks and rescued materials.  Neckties, clothing and furnishing samples have all found their way into her work. Julia lectures and teaches about ways quilters can incorporate silk into their quilts.
