Here's an easy one!...just half
squares!...and it can be done in any size at all that is evenly
divisible by 2! To speed piece masses of half squares, cut fabric
strips half the finished desired width of your border, plus
7/8" for seam allowances. Stack the two colored strips right
sides together, and on the back of the top strip, lightly mark the
square lines (whatever size you wanted your half squares to be, ie...
27/8", 37/8" etc...whatever the width of your
strips!)...then mark the diagonals as shown at left, and sew 1/4" above and below the marked diagonals, pivoting at the
square lines. Cut apart on the square lines, and on the diagonals
between the lines of stitching. This will give you twice as many
half squares as you had squares. Press the seams towards the darker
fabric. Sew four half squares together to make one pinwheel...
