Scrappy Pinwheel in a Square – Part 2
Just a short time ago I showed you my new block idea of Scrappy Pinwheel in a Square. No triangles to cut and no squaring up! I’ve been having a lot of fun making these blocks. It’s really quite satisfying to make such a pretty block from scraps. Actually I think they are quite addictive and not at all boring. Read more about that here.
Today I’m showing how I am finishing those blocks ready to go into a new baby quilt. I thought the blocks needed something extra. I decided in order to overcome the bias edges of the block and finish them ready to go into the quilt. To do that I thought they would look and behave beautifully with a frame.
This is how I do it.
Ingredients for the framed Scrappy Pinwheel in a Square Block
1 x a 1 1/2″ Width of Fabric (WOF) strip for each block
Gently press your blocks without stretching. From each 1 1/2″ WOF strip, sub cut the strip into;
2 x 10″ strips
Pin a 8″ strip evenly to two opposite side of a finished block. Sew them on, being careful to observe your 1/4″ seam so that the points are not lost. Finger press.
Pin a 10″ strip evenly to each of the remainder unfinished sides and then sew on.
There you have it a framed scrappy pinwheel in a square. No more bias edges and I think it looks more finished.
Press to finish the block. Make some more!
