We are really warmed up now in First Notes. We’ve had opportunities to perfect the Half Square Triangle and some Flying Geese. How are all those points working out for you?
This week’s block focuses on a new technique. I’ve always called it a stitch and flip, mainly because you stitch a diagonal line, cut, and then flip the top fabric open to create the block. I’m sure there are other names for it, and I would love to hear what you call it in the comments.
Without further ado here is Pinwheel.
Pinwheel Pattern can now be purchased at Shoppe Lovingly Lissa Etsy Shop for $2.
Do you need to catch up with previous week blocks? The cutting directions and all even numbered blocks can be found at The Not So Dramatic Life Etsy Shop and all odd number blocks can be found at Shoppe Lovingly Lissa Etsy Shop.
This Week’s Sponsor and Giveaway!
Thank you to this week’s Sponsor, Fat Quarter Shop. We are so thrilled you are joining us for the Quilt Concert Series.
The Fat Quarter Shop was founded in 2003 by Kimberly Jolly. An avid quilter, Kimberly began her shop as a side business while still working a corporate position, cutting, packing and shipping right out of her house during evenings and weekends. From the very beginning, she was committed to delivering top-notch service for every single order and customer.
Fat Quarter Shop will be sending one U.S. Resident a $25 gift certificate to their shop.
