Pineapple Quilt Block Patterns

The pineapple quilt block is one of the most recognizable and iconically "Americana" styles of quilt blocks. Believed to have emerged in the mid-1800's during Lincoln's presidential campaign, the pineapple quilt block was, and still is, a symbol of opulence and hospitality. As a variation of the log cabin quilt pattern, the pineapple quilt pattern uses similar layering methods in the composition of its blocks.

What is a Pineapple Quilt?

Pineapple quilts may look complicated, but they're fairly easy to make. Similar to courthouse step patterns, pineapple quilts are a variation of the classic log cabin quilt block. What gives pineapple blocks their distinct look are their angles, although they are constructed similarly to log cabins: with a square center and strips, along with triangles, radiating outward.

Pineapple quilt patterns are an excellent opportunity to play with color, and the pattern exists in simplified and complex versions. Pineapple quilt blocks are also often paper pieced, to give their strips precise and sharp edges. Whether you use basic strip quilting techniques or more complicated paper piecing, the versatile pineapple block is a sweet design that we know you won't be able to resist!
