pinwheel sampler quilt along: block six.

28 March 2010

pinwheel sampler quilt along.

here are the instructions for block six!!!


yall will need:
four 3 7/8" x 3 7/8" squares of focal print fabric {mine=red}
four 3 7/8" x 3 7/8" squares of blender print fabric {mine=yellow}
eight 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.


this is our block layout.
pure cuteness.


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 six.

sew all four rows together to construct your block.
cute huh???

I'm so wishing I had joined ya'll on this!! Although, I guess it's a good thing I didn't since my machine has been at the spa for a week getting all freshened up. I'll have to come back and do it this summer on my own.

I'm getting so excited with all my blocks. I also want to share this method of HST from Marci Baker that helped me shorten my time with these blocks. Why didn't I think of this???

I am doing a sampler quilt for our guild and I was putting blocks together a few weeks ago. I love this Dutchman's puzzle! Great block - thanks again!

I love that you are doing this!

I've decided to use this for my month of my bee. I'm still trying to decide what fabrics to use. I have some Momo Oddysea and some Christmas fabrics, those are my main two choices right now. Which would you use?

Oh yeah, are you doing a block a week? I have to send out my stuff by the end of April - well actually before I go to the hospital to have a baby on the 28th!!

In my eagerness to catch up on my blocks. I listened to a movie the other night while cutting out all my blocks for the quilt. Guess what... I cut them all out according to the instructions for Block Two, because thats where I had gotten behind... You guess it... I'm cutting them all down to now fit the other blocks. Yippee... mistakes make us stronger, right? :)hee hee
