Pinwheel block


I'm slightly out of whack with my blogging about these blocks. To recap:

Week 1 and 2: Raspberry Kiss and Simple Heart

Week 3: Economy Block - and I'm so doing this one again! Possibly my favourite so far.

Week 4 I need to do still. Will be a present for my mother in law later in the year so perhaps why there is no urgency to do this one. 

Week 5: Pinwheel blocks - these ones today!!

Week 6: I need to do. Was a tricky one in the group so I'm a little worried!

Week 7: Cross stitch block I posted last week. 

So this week is the Pinwheel Block by Missouri Star Quilt Co. It was nice to have it mixed up a little with a video. Really helpful to watch it rather than read it.

You can see from the photos below that I haven't sewn them together yet. I'm not sure what I will do with them so wanted to leave them for the moment. 

The fabric is Riley Blake Sugar and Spice from The Quilted Fish from a few years ago. You should still be able to find it online. I have quite a bit of scraps of this so will probably use it a bit in these projects (featured in the Raspberry Kiss cushion I donated to my sons teacher) 

I've recently been ironing my seams flat rather than to the dark side. I can see with these blocks that I have ironed to the dark side (as that was the instructions I was following). I probably need to trim the ends a bit but I wonder if it would sit flatter in the centre if the seams were open. mmmmm I'll go ponder that ....
