This makes a 12" block!

This is another simple one, that lends itself beautifully in a wide range of fabrics. I have done several of these as baby quilts, in ginghams and baby pastel solids....truly CUTE quilts! and Fast!

Please abide by the Terms and Conditions of use! :o)

Pinwheels just came to mind for this months' pattern, as it is a BEAUTIFUL spring day here in are outside jumping rope...somewhere, someone is making a pinwheel---I just know it! :o)

** Preparing the Pieces and Sewing the Block **

Let's start this one, by using a rotary cutter to cut your Color 2 strip into two 6-7/8" squares...

Next, stack your Color 1 square atop your Color 3 square, and again using the rotary cutter, bisect these together diagonally...then, keeping them stacked, cut the resultant triangles across the other way...

Next, stack your two Color 2 squares, and cut them diagonally into two triangles...

With right sides together, stack one Color 1 and one Color 3 triangle together, and sew them on one short side, using a 1/4" seam, and being careful not to stretch fabrics. Press seam towards darker fabric. Repeat this with all Color 1 and Color 3 triangles...on to Page 2!
