Back to Square One – Clue #10

Even if you’re not doing this project, please come back and check the progress of those who are.  The quilts are all so pretty!

For this month’s clue, we will be making 12 of the following block, which measures 8″ finished or 8-1/2″ unfinished.

Fabric 1:  Cut 96 – 2-1/2″ squares

The remainder of the block will be half square triangles.  I’m confident that by now, you all have your favorite method of making these.  They will need to be 2-1/2″ unfinished.

To make this block, I like to assemble the center pinwheel type portion.  Getting that center to match up is important.

    This is a beautiful pattern, and is on my to do list. I especially love the lavender/purple colors, my granddaughter’s favorites. I’ll either have to make it for her or change the colors if I don’t want to start something with the other 8 grands. If only I didn’t love the colors myself so much.
