Sewing

Sew the 4 pinwheels together. Again, the video has some great tips re joining the blocks and then pinwheels


Sew the middle row of 5 squares together


Sew the 2 squares between the pinwheels together in the top and bottom row



Sew the pinwheels each side of the squares in the top row


Repeat in the bottom row


Sew the 3 rows together and you are done.

To the top of this block sew a 10.5 inch square of background.

To the bottom of this block sew a rectangle of background 10.5 inches wide by 5.5 inches high.
