  1. lovely pinwheel ;)
    ciao Maria

  2. Natalia,
    I am assuming that the size of each of the finished pin blocks is to be 4.5 inches. I'm having a hard time stitching the 4 triangle to the 4 cut-down blocks and still having the blocks measure 4.5 inches. What am I doing wrong?

    Here's what I'm doing . . .
    4-4.5 inch blocks;

    trim 2 5/8 inch from one side of the blocks to the corner of the same side;

    4-2 5/8 inch x 5 3/8 inch rectangles cut diagonally;

    stitch the resulting triangles to the altered blocks along the trimmed side using a 1/4 inch seam.

  3. I figured out last month's block . . . I don't know why I struggled; it was easy.

    Is it time for the third block yet?
