This class is designed around the Bloc-Loc Pinapple ruler. This method will teach you a fast, accurate and successful way to achieve beautiful Pineapple blocks for your projects.
You will be constructing four 15 inch unfinished blocks which we will use to construct a small project. Come join us for an exciting day of learning.
This class includes a 30 minute lunch break. Bring your lunch or plan to purchase locally.

All fabric must be heavily starched (60% StaFlo/40% water) and pressed before cutting. A limited amount of mixed starch is available at Experience Quilts!.
