Pineapple Block

I found a fabulous tutorial on doing a pineapple block at Crazy Mom Quilts. Here is the link:
I've been wanting to try my hand at a pieced quilt. My mom is always making beautiful quilts and is an inspiration to me. But I needed to start with something kind of simple and straight forward. This is it.
I'm going to take a little different approach in color schemes than in the tutorial and try to keep all the blocks semi-matching. So they will all begin in the center like the pictured block.
The other thing I did different was to make the center pieces slightly larger. I cut my center square 3" instead of the 2 1/2" suggested in the tutorial.
Now I'm excited to finish all the centers so I can decide what the next colors will be. I'm leaning toward some cream colored floral prints.
