Blog Sampler Pinwheels

This weeks block is a variation on the Pinwheel block we’ve already done.

Cutting instructions:

Light fabric- cut 2 squares @ 3 1/2 inches
                      cut 4 squares @ 2 3/8 inches
Dark Fabric- cut 4 squares @ 2 3/8 inches

Draw a diagonal line on each of the light 2 3/8 inch squares. Place these right sides together with the dark 2 3/8 inch squares and sew a scant 1/4 inch on either side of the drawn line. Cut apart on the drawn line and press to the dark side of the triangle square.

Arrange these triangle squares as shown to make two pinwheel units.

Arrange these pinwheel units as shown and sew together into finished sampler square.

Go here to find the instructions for finishing this block, keeping in mind that the light triangles are on the outside of this block.
