I'm at it again with another baby quilt. And pinwheels again also. Let me show you my progress so far.
I have 2 stacks of cut squares. The larger is a 6" square and the smaller is 4" squares. I'm using scraps, so the 4" squares are from my smaller scraps. It takes 2 of each color to make one pinwheel. With the 6" squares it only takes 1 of each color.
First the 4" squares. I drew a line diagonally across the square and sewed 1/4" on each side of it.
Then cut them in half.
Now they are all laid out like a pinwheel.
And now sewn and trimmed. It measures 6 1/2" unfinished.
For the 6" squares I sewed along the outside edge of the 2 squares put together on all 4 sides.
And then I cut 2 diagonal lines across it.
Press those open.
Arrange them the way I want them.
And sew and trim. This is also 6 1/2" unfinished. It took some figuring to find out what size square to start with, but I think this is the more accurate method and easier method to make pinwheels. Give it a try.
Which method do you like better?
Now it's time for the assembly line.
