This block is very pretty with the pinwheel in the center. You will note that a few of the blocks at the beginning will have various pinwheels in the center.
Here are the colors I chose:
From each fabric cut a strip of 2 and 2.5 inch squares. This is the basic formula for the blocks in this challenge. It will rarely change.
I checked at quilterscache.com and was unable to find a pattern for this block, but once I played with it, it was easy to figure out. Here are my simple instructions.
You will need four 2 inch squares of each piece and four 2.5 inch squares of each. What I didn’t use in the block was used later on in other blocks, sort of mix and match.
Here is a picture of the center block. Excuse me, I didn’t realize until just now that the bottom half square triangle is turned the wrong way! OOPS! But the block came out correctly!
Here is a picture of the block before it went together:
You can see that I used the dark fabric for the corners and the light to medium as contrast. Remember, to keep your pieces in the right position, not like this! LOL! No wonder I had issues with it! After sewing it together, this is the finished block!
My apologies for not posting more instructions but I believe that pictures are a lot more helpful than writing out instructions. Remember, I get confused at times.
Have fun sewing. See you Thursday, March 14 with the next block!
