Last week we learned how to make this very simple pinwheel block. You can go HERE to find the tutorial. Our finished block was 9 1/2″ by 9 1/2″. We made 9 blocks to make up a finished size lap quilt of 35 1/2″ x 35 1/2″. If you want your finished quilt be be bigger just use larger squares or add on more blocks.
Please read all instructions before you begin.
What you will need:
-1/2 Yard Coordinating fabric for sashing
-9 Pinwheel Blocks
(This is how you will cut your 1/2 Yard Coordinating fabric for sashing)
Cut 6 strips 2 1/2″ x 9″
Cut 4 strips 2 1/2″ x 31 1/2″
Cut 2 strips 2 1/2″ x 35 1/2″
To make our exact quilt you will now need to add your sashing to your 9 blocks that you made. We once again used 1/4″ seam for the entire project. Cut six strips at 2 1/2″ x 9 1/2″. Add sashing in between two of your blocks like the picture below. Do this three times using all 9 of your blocks. You should have three identical stips that look like the picture below when you are done.
Now add sashing on one of the sides. This should measure 2 1/2″ x 31 1/2″. Do this twice.
