We’ll make this tiny pinwheel block today.

Can’t get much easier than this tiny pinwheel block!

Cut:

  • Make 4 red/cream half-square triangles using 1 1/2″ FINISHED Thangles™ or see instructions below for traditional piecing.

 

 

~~~~OR~~~~

If traditionally piecing the half-square triangles (hst’s),

Cut 2 red & 2 cream 2 1/2″ squares.

Place a cream square on top of a red square.

Draw a diagonal line on the cream square.

Sew a scant 1/4″ on both sides of the drawn line.

Cut apart the squares on the drawn line.

Press flat, then toward the red fabric.

Trim hst’s to 2″.

~~~~Make them however you prefer.~~~~

Lay out the pieces then assemble the block.

I removed the few stitches from within the last seam allowance

which removes bulk & allows the center seam to spin

 & makes it press flatter.

Don’t forget to post pics over at my Sewing With Susan Facebook group!
