Pinwheel Party Week 8

Right on time this week.

Block 8:

Pinwheel Party Block 8

Download the pattern here. (You will need Adobe Reader. You can download it at http://get.adobe.com/reader.)
Links to all the previous blocks can be found in the sidebar.

(If you want to get a head start on the sashing & border, you're going to need twenty-four 2"(finished) pinwheels. That means you will have to cut your squares 1 7/8". You will need at least 3 of each color. Directionality will be as in Block 8. Details will follow in Week 13.)

Happy Sewing!

Pin It!

  1. This is my third try at leaving a comment -- I really thought I'd succeeded the last time.

    My math says we need 4 2" pinwheels of each color. Of course, my math always gives me twice as much binding strip as I need, well, maybe not always ...

    Anyway, again, thanks for being there, I'm loving this adventure. ethel

    Thanks again Anina!

  5. I guess you meant cutting the quares to 2 7/8" for the sashing/border pinwheels? Just to be sure :o) This will be such a great quilt!

  8. Whew, those tiny sashing pinwheels are tough! It's good I got an early start on them... I'm not sure I can do more than 1 color per day.
