pinwheel sampler quilt along.

yayyy!!!
here are the instructions for block seven!!!

002

yall will need:
two 3 7/8" x 3 7/8" squares of focal print fabric {mine=red}
two 3 7/8" x 3 7/8" squares of solid fabric {mine=cream}

two 1 1/2" x 6 1/2" strips of solid fabric {mine=cream}
two 1 1/2" x 8 1/2" strips of solid fabric {mine=cream}
two 1 1/2" x 10 1/2" strips of solid fabric {mine=cream}
two 1 1/2" x 12 1/2" strips of solid fabric {mine=cream}

two 1 1/2" x 8 1/2" strips of secondary print fabric {mine=aqua}
two 1 1/2" x 10 1/2" strips of secondary print fabric {mine=aqua}*

*if you are using layer cake pieces...
add two 1 1/2" x 2" strips of secondary print fabric {mine=aqua}
yall will need to piece your 1 1/2" x 2" strips to your 1 1/2" x 10" strips.
& then trim your whole strip down to 10 1/2" long.
this is the only way to do this with layer cake pieces.


{pretend i was cool enough to take a pic of my hst blocks.}

using my hst tutorial, use your 3 7/8" squares to make 4 hst blocks.

sew all your pieces together to construct your block.
i really like the simplicity of this block.

now make one more block in a completely different color scale.

obviously i have some addiction to the red in this line.
i couldn't help but use it twice.
:P

so that's 14 blocks down. only 2 to go.
are yall antsy to be done yet???

i can't wait to start seeing all of yall's blocks show up in our flickr pool.

Ok Rachel, you have to stop! Each time you post a new one, it becomes my favorite, and now I'm all confused!

Even though I'm not participating, I am thoroughly enjoying following along and also cannot wait to see the finished quilts in the flickr pool.
