I had my notebook to jot down some ideas. And, thankfully, I tucked an acrylic 6" square ruler into my bag, because one idea turned into many.
Here is " Block Two".
I used a 9" foundation block.
Next, is a 6" square. (If you want exact pinwheels, than make it a 6 1/2" square.)
(The extra points are the prairie points that get sewn in when you applique the 6" square on to the foundation.)
...Block without Prairie Points.
with Prairie Points..
Making Prairie Points, my way:
Click here for Jessica's Prairie Points
Pieces tacked down, using a glue stick: now do a zig-zag all around the edge of the 6" square.
You can tack down the Prairie Points later, or not at all..
Cut block in half, turn and cut in half again.
Blocks are going to look like this.
That 6" square could be enlarged to a 6.5" square, that way the points would extend out to the edge of the foundation square (if you want your pinwheel exact). I went whimsy, instead of exact.
Block Play......what ifs.
I like the pinwheel the most, but there's at least one other way of putting
the pieces back together, that I like.
...what if we turn it like this?
Time for me to work on more blocks and decide on sash fabric.
I think, I like the Black, for sash.
Let me know if you try this.
