Scrap Quilt 2016-2017: Block #16

Cutting Instructions

Color Fabric
  • 12 - 3 3/8" squares

White Fabric
  • 12 - 3 3/8" squares
  • 2 - 4 1/2" x 10 1/2" rectangles
  • 2 - 6 1/2" x 10 1/2" rectangles
  • 2 - 2 1/2" x 4 1/2" rectangles
  • 1 - 1 1/2" x 6 1/2" rectangle

*Note: Always press to the color fabric unless otherwise noted.

**Note: Half squares triangles (HST) allow plenty of room for trimming. To make HSTs with some trimming space, reduce square size by 1/4". To make HSTs without trimming space, reduce square size by 1/2".


Step 1. Make the half square triangles (HST). Using the 3 3/8" squares, make a total of 24 HSTs. Lay a white 3 3/8" square on a color fabric 3 3/8" square right sides together. Mark a diagonal line along the squares, then sew 1/4" from both sides of the line.

Cut along the line, then press open the squares and trim to measure 2 1/2" square.

Step 2. Referring to the next 3 photos, make the pinwheels. Sew together 4 HSTs per pinwheel. Make a total of 6 pinwheels.

Step 3. Assemble the block. Sew the 2 1/2" x 4 1/2" pieces onto the sides of two of the pinwheels.

Sew the previously constructed pieces onto the 2 1/2" x 6 1/2" piece.

Sew the 6 1/2" x 10 1/2" pieces onto the sides of the previously made piece. Sew two pinwheels onto each of the 4 1/2" x 10 1/2" pieces to make the top and bottom pieces.

Sew the top and bottom pieces onto the block.
