pineapple with hexagons quilt pattern tutorial

Nowadays I like dealing with the things related to fruits; blocks, patterns, appliques, whatever. This is the second pineapple I made and shared in my blog. The first one was a pineapple block and now I designed a pineapple pattern which is combined with hexagons. Actually I was inspired by a fabric pattern and thought why not to make it as patchwork. And I like the result. It may be  turned into a wall hanging, cushion or something that I haven't decided yet but it is pretty cool! Below is the step by step tutorial with pictures for those who would like to make one also.

1- You will need 10 hexies of 1" and 8 triangles. 

2- Hexagons and triangles are paper pieced. When you baste the hexies, triangles and leaves which makes of 5 pieces, sewn together, press them with iron and remove the papers.

3 - Place the pieces on fabric as can be seen in the picture and pin them.

4- Baste the pieces on fabric so that you can applique more easily. Now you are ready to start for appliquing.

5- Once you have finished appliquing all pieces, you stitch around the hexies and triangles as you can see in the photo below.
