pinwheel sampler quilt along: block five.

20 March 2010

pinwheel sampler quilt along.

here are the instructions for block five!!!


yall will need:
four 3 7/8" x 3 7/8" squares of focal print fabric {mine=pink/floral}
four 3 7/8" x 3 7/8" squares of blender print fabric {mine=cream/pink floral}
two 3 7/8" x 3 7/8" squares of secondary print fabric {mine=pink dot}
six 3 7/8" x 3 7/8" squares of solid fabric {mine=cream}


using my hst tutorial, use your 3 7/8" squares to make 16 hst blocks.

note: 4 print squares will be used to make 2 hst blocks.
{see block layout before constructing hst blocks.}


this is our block layout.
you likey??? me likey.


sew row one together, pressing seams to the right.
sew row two together, pressing seams to the left.
sew row three together, pressing seams to the right.
sew row four together, pressing seams to the left.
{this will ensure perfect seams.}

pinwheel sampler quilt along: block five.

sew all four rows together to construct your block.

LOL! I wish, for me, it was as simple as pressing to the right and then to the left, in order to ensure perfect seams! :)
