One of my all-time favorite patterns made from one of my all time favorite color palettes, PINEAPPLE & FIGS uses a no ruler, no funky cutting techniques method that makes these blocks come together in such a simple way that you won't believe it. Its just rectangles and squares. Really!
If you have ever wanted to make this classic block but didn't want to deal with templates or bias, then this really is for you. I think. Sewing these blocks is remarkably similar to making a Log Cabin block and just as simple and basic.
It's perfect in these autumn flavored colors, or in a variety of others, although I am personally biased to this one. Autumn is my favorite time of the year and this color combo just sings to me. I should have put a cream SNUGGLE on the back... but then there would be a fight over who gets to use it every single day!
We have made it in a more summer flavored version out of our California Girl fabrics as well as a darker, more striking version made with a beautiful burgundy background [seen at the end of the post].There are just so many color varieties that I can visualize this pattern in!
If all goes according to plan, I will be doing a blog tutorial on this method in October! More info coming soon.
