From light aqua batik: • Cut 2 (37/ 8" by fab­ric width) strips. Sub­cut strips into 20 (37/ 8") squares. Cut each square in half on 1 di­ag­o­nal to make 40 B tri­an­gles. From pur­ple batiks: • Cut 2 (41/4" by fab­ric width) strips. Sub­cut strips into 11 (41/4") squares. Cut each square on both di­ag­o­nals to make 44 E tri­an­gles. From yel­low/or­ange batiks: • Cut 2 (43/4" by fab­ric width) strips.

Sub­cut strips into 10 (43/4") A squares. From bright green batik: • Cut 1 (41/4" by fab­ric width) strip. Sub­cut strip into 8 (41/4") squares. Cut each square on both di­ag­o­nals to make 32 D tri­an­gles. Set aside 2 tri­an­gles for another project. • Cut 1 (37/ 8" by fab­ric width) strip. Sub­cut strip into 8 (37/ 8") squares. Cut each square in half on 1 di­ag­o­nal to make 16 F tri­an­gles. From dark turquoise batik: • Cut 1 (37/ 8" by fab­ric width) strip. Sub­cut strip into 7 (37/ 8") squares.

COM­PLET­ING THE PIN­WHEEL BLOCKS

1. Sew an E triangle to a D triangle on one short side to make an E-D unit as shown in Fig­ure 1. Re­peat to make a to­tal of 30 E-D units.

2. Re­peat step 1 with E and G to make 14 E-G units re­fer­ring to Fig­ure 2. 3. Add C to the E-G units to make 14 C block quar­ters as shown in Fig­ure 3; press. 4. Add F to 16 E-D units to make 16 F block quar­ters as shown in Fig­ure 4; press. 5. Sew H to 14 E-D units to make 14 H block quar­ters as shown in Fig­ure 5; press.

6. To make one Pin­wheel 1 block, select 1 each C and H block quar­ter and two F block quar­ters.

7. Re­fer­ring to Fig­ure 6, join two F block quar­ters to make a row; press. Join the C and H block quar­ters to make a sec­ond row; press. Join the rows to com­plete one Pin­wheel 1 block; press.

8. Re­peat steps 6 and 7 to make a to­tal of eight Pin­wheel 1 blocks.

9. To make one Pin­wheel 2 block, select two each C and H block quar­ters. Re­fer­ring to Fig­ure 7, join one each block quar­ter to make a row; press. Re­peat. Join the rows to com­plete the block; press. Re­peat to make a to­tal of three Pin­wheel 2 blocks.

COM­PLET­ING THE SQUARE- IN- A- SQUARE BLOCKS

1. Select one A square and four B tri­an­gles to make one Square-in-aSquare block. 2. Sew a B triangle to op­po­site sides of an A square re­fer­ring to Fig­ure 8; press.

3. Sew a B triangle to each of the two re­main­ing sides of the A-B unit to com­plete one Square-in-a-Square block, again re­fer­ring to Fig­ure 8; press.

4. Re­peat steps 1–3 to com­plete a to­tal of 10 Square-in-a-Square blocks.

COM­PLET­ING THE RUN­NER

Re­fer to the Assem­bly Di­a­gram for po­si­tion­ing of blocks and rows dur­ing con­struc­tion.

1. Ar­range and join three Square-ina-Square blocks with four Pin­wheel 1 blocks to make an X row; press. Re­peat to make a sec­ond X row.

2. Join three Pin­wheel 2 blocks with four Square-in-a-Square blocks to make a Y row; press.

3. Join the X and Y rows to com­plete the pieced cen­ter; press.

4. Join the I/J strips on the short ends to make one long strip; press. Sub­cut strip into two each 11/2" x 421/2" I strips and 11/2" x 201/2" J strips. Note: Cut one J strip first to keep the seam in the I strip away from the end of the strip. 5. Sew I strips to op­po­site long sides and J strips to the short ends of the pieced cen­ter; press.

6. Baste the bat­ting piece to the wrong side of the pieced top.

7. Place the back­ing piece right sides to­gether with the basted top/bat­ting; pin to hold.
