You can make a bunch of these patchwork pineapples and use them for lots of things. Perfect o make up a set of four or six pineapple place mats.

If you have some bright yellow and lime green scraps around, then it’s all you need to get started on this mini quilt.

Fabric you’ll be neediing:

-assorted yellow scraps
-assorted green scraps, some light and dark to make the leaves look dimensional.
-1/8 yard of solid white
-1/8 yard of black & white stripe for binding, and some bright white and yellow polka dots if you have.
-11” x 14” scrap for backing

That’s it!

From the assorted yellow scraps, cut: sixteen 1-1/2” squares, two 1-7/8” squares and one 2-1/4” wide strip (optional for binding)

From assorted green scraps, cut: four 1-7/8” squares.

From the white fabric, cut: two 1-1/2” squares, four 1-7/8” squares,.

From the white fabric also cut two 2-1/2” x 7-1/2” rectangles for the side border of the pineapple,
and two 2-1/2” x 8-1/2” rectangles for the top and bottom border.

From the binding cut: one 2-1/4” x Wof.

Start by making the half-square triangles:
With fabrics right sides together , stitch 1-7/8” white square and yellow square together. Draw a diagonal line down the center. Then stitch 1/4 inch on either side of the center diagonal line.
Cut  the square in half along the drawn line. Press seam open of each square.
