First Tutorial – Exploding Pineapple Block

Exploding Pineapple Quilt Block

I have been asked to remove this tutorial showing my technique for making this block by the original designer; who was acknowledged in my posting.  I apologize to anyone who may have linked to it for future reference. I was unaware that showing how I made this block, which was a little different from what is published in the original designers book, was a potential copyright infringement.  Not being a professional or commercial writer/blogger I guess I have some lessons to learn!

For those who would like to learn how to make this block a Google search for Exploding Pineapple Block will turn up resources for the pattern.
