IQFOI Pineapple Blossom Class Supply List!

International Quilt Festival of Ireland!

Pineapple Blossom Workshop Supply List

Large quilt with 36 blocks

Lap quilt with 20 blocks.

This quilt is related more towards the "geese in the corner" style of log cabin, than it is a true pineapple block, because the triangle corners are only sewn to two opposite diagonal sides. It still has that pineapple punch though, and it works up into a pretty quilt!

The block logs are cut from 2" scrap strips I already had waiting for me in the 2" scrap strip bin, and the pineapple corners are cut from 3.5" light strips.

Please keep in mind that this is a "scrap quilt" workshop and you are meant to use your stash! Since our scraps are all different shapes, lengths and sizes, fabric amounts are guestimates, no exact yardage is given.

Each student must come to class with the Pineapple Blossom pattern printed from the Quiltville.com website. The pattern is found at http://quiltville.com/pineappleblossompf.html
This helps keep workshop prices down. Please be aware of any students who might not have printer access, making sure that everyone in class has a copy.

Machines will be provided for this class.

Please bring the following:

Thread, scissors, seam ripper, pins and any other notions you usually sew with.
Rotary cutter, small mat and ruler. 

Mechanical pencil for marking lines on fabric.

Fabric supplies:
Approximately 3 yards of dark/medium scraps cut into 2" strips.

For this workshop we will start with 20 blocks. You can make the quilt as big as you want, but we will start with 20 blocks!

From your 2" strips please have ready the following:
40 2"X 3.5" rectangles
80 2" X 6.5" rectangles
40 2" X 9.5" rectangles.

From 3.5" light strips cut:

100 3.5" squares light (block center and pineapple corners) These may be the same throughout the whole quilt, scrappy through the whole quilt, or you can match them in each block as I did above. All 5 squares in each block are the same, but differ from block to block.

If you have any questions about the supply list or instructions, please don't hesitate to email me at Quiltville@gmail.com! I really look forward to this workshop with you!
