It's always a good day when I get to sew and I can't wait to see how this quilt turns out!
It's time for another step in our Sugar Plums Sew Along. If you are just joining me, you will need a Winter Wonderland book which you can find HERE. I am making this quilt with 6 blocks instead of the 12 like it's shown in the book and I will be add some borders in a few weeks. Here are the additional Sugar plum Sew Along cutting instructions for the borders and for cutting half the amount show in the book.
Today we are going to do some pinwheel blocks. I just LOVE pinwheels!
So let's get started...turn to page 18 and grab your H and D squares.
With right sides together, layer one H and one D square together. Draw a diagonal line through the center of the square. Using a 1/4" seam, sew along both sides of the drawn lines.
Cut the sewn squares in half on the drawn line.
Press your seam toward the darker fabric. I always press each block the same so that the seams will nest together, making it easier to keep the blocks accurate. Make four for each small pinwheel.
You need 48 small pinwheels.
Now repeat the above steps with A and G squares to sew up the larger pinwheels. You will need 6 of these.
Next week we get to sew all the pieces together to form our blocks!
