Trapped Pineapple and an EQ Tip

I am still playing with Pineapple blocks in my spare time.  I decided to use a trapezoid shape for the center this time.  Again the edges started to converge after are few rounds so I just trimmed as best I could and made it work.
The edges converging also led to the extra strip on the bottom to make it size correctly.  I think it is a fun scrappy "pineapple type" block.

For those of you who use Electric Quilt,  the Behind the Mouse blog is a great resource.  Today's Quick Tip Tuesday post is on setting your snapping options when you design a block.   This was a great "tip/lesson" for me.  I now understand how to get my blocks to be more exactly what I want.

Until next time,  keep your bobbins filled and your machine cleaned out!

Love this one, Gene. Thanks for the EQ resource. I haven't even loaded my software yet but I plan to get to it this fall.

Your last line made me LOL!

It is amazing what we do --and don't--know about the quilt software. Even a beginning lesson can teach you a new trick or remind you of some forgotten quick trick. Love your scrappy, inventive pineapples.
