Make Quilting Pinwheels
I stumbled upon this tutorial on another blog, but do you think I could find it, no.
I am no even sure if it an old method or newly invented by a talented quilter.
So if you are that talented person - thank-you and let me know so I can link back to your work.
I used 2 x 5" squares, but this works with any size squares
1 plain white the other is Amy Butler soul blossoms
First over lay the two pieces,
then sew a 1/4" running stitch around the entire edge
Next using your ruler and rotary cutter (if you own one)
cut a diagonal line from one corner to the other
Making sure your 2 pieces are back together
cut a further diagonal line from the other 2 corners
You will now have 4 triangles
Open out each triangle
Press open all in the same direction towards your patterned fabric
Then arrange them ready for sewing together
take one top piece and overlay on the other top piece
sew a 1/4" seam (mine will be on left)
Trim off the excess
Repeat this process for the bottom 2 pieces
(at this point I still didn't think it would meet in the middle - need more faith in work!)
Lastly overlay your 2 halves sew a 1/4" seam
Press open - and trim square
