Pineapple Popout Spice
CLPJAW079 - 51in x 62in. The Creative Grids Pineapple Trim Tool (CGRJAW3) and Pineapple Trim Tool Mini (CGRJAW3MINI) are required. The Creative Grids 2-1/2 inch x 12-1/2 inch rectangle (CGR212); 3-1/2 inch x 12-1/2 inch rectangle (CGR312); and the Creative Grids 45mm Rotary Cutter (CGRCUT45) are recommended. Designed by Jean Ann Wright. Intermediate skill level.
The pineapple popout series showcases a new technique. The center pineapple block is made with the Creative Grids Mini Pineapple Trim Tool with rounds that finish at one-half-inch. Additional rounds are added and trimmed with the Creative Grids Pineapple Trim Tool to create 1-inch finished rounds.
In this quilt, the colors are reversed in each set of coordinated prints to enhance the dimensional effect. The scrappy border and binding add a modern feel to this stunning quilt. And since each round is trimmed after cutting, sewing and pressing, the results are perfect every time.
Tip: Eliminate the math by cutting the strips using the line down the center of any of the Creative Grids 2-1/2-inch wide rectangles. This white line is at the 1-1/4-inch mark, the width of the strips needed to make the mini blocks. Use the line down the center of any of the Creative Grids 3-1/2 inch wide rectangles to cut the strips for the outer rounds.
