CUT­TING

From light green batik: • Cut 1 (71/4" by fab­ric width) strip. Sub­cut strip into 5 (71/4") squares. Cut each square on both di­ag­o­nals to make 20 J tri­an­gles. From green solid: • Cut 2 (67/ 8" by fab­ric width) strips. Sub­cut strips into 10 (67/ 8") squares. Cut each square in half on 1 di­ag­o­nal to make 20 I tri­an­gles. From pur­ple batik: • Cut 2 (71/4" by fab­ric width) strips. Sub­cut strips into 9 (71/4") squares. Cut each square on both di­ag­o­nals to make 36 F tri­an­gles. From red/vi­o­let batik: • Cut 2 (71/4" by fab­ric width) strips. Sub­cut strips into 9 (71/4") squares. Cut each square on both di­ag­o­nals to make 36 E tri­an­gles. From yel­low batik: • Cut 3 (9" by fab­ric width) strips.

Sub­cut strips into 9 (9") A squares. From lime green batik: • Cut 2 (67/ 8" by fab­ric width) strips. Sub­cut strips into 10 (67/ 8") squares. Cut each square in half on 1 di­ag­o­nal to make 20 C tri­an­gles. • Cut 2 (71/4" by fab­ric width) strips. Sub­cut strips into 6 (71/4") G squares and 2 (67/ 8") C squares. Cut each G square on both di­ag­o­nals to make 24 G tri­an­gles and the C squares on 1 di­ag­o­nal to make 4 C tri­an­gles (24 C tri­an­gles to­tal). Set aside 2 G tri­an­gles for another project. From or­ange batik: • Cut 2 (9" by fab­ric width) strips.

Sub­cut strips into 8 (9") A squares. • Cut 8 (11/2" by fab­ric width) K/L strips. From dark turquoise batik: • Cut 3 (67/ 8" by fab­ric width) strips. Sub­cut strips into 14 (67/ 8") squares. Cut each square in half on 1 di­ag­o­nal to make 28 D tri­an­gles. • Cut 2 (71/4" by fab­ric width) strips. Sub­cut strips into 8 (71/4") squares. Cut each square on both di­ag­o­nals to make 30 H tri­an­gles. Set aside 2 tri­an­gles for another project. • Cut 9 (21/4" by fab­ric width) bind­ing strips. From light turquoise print: • Cut 7 (67/ 8" by fab­ric width) strips. Sub­cut strips into 34 (67/ 8") squares. Cut each square in half on 1 di­ag­o­nal to make 68 B tri­an­gles. • Cut 8 (21/2" by fab­ric width) M/N strips.

COM­PLET­ING THE PIN­WHEEL BLOCKS

There are six vari­a­tions of the Pin­wheel block. The fab­ric used and place­ment changes just a lit­tle in each block. To avoid mix­ing up the units, re­fer to the fig­ure draw­ings of­ten when piec­ing the blocks. In­struc­tions are not given for in­di­vid­ual color vari­a­tions. 1. Sew an F triangle to an H triangle on one short side to make an F-H unit as shown in Fig­ure 1; press. Re­peat to make a to­tal of 16 F-H units.

2. Re­peat step 1 with E and G, E and H, and F and J re­fer­ring to Fig­ure 2.

3. Add C, D and I tri­an­gles to the units pieced in steps 1 and 2 re­fer­ring to Fig­ure 3 to make block quar­ters; press.

4. Ar­range and join the block quar­ters in rows of two re­fer­ring to Fig­ure 4 for color com­bi­na­tions for each of the 18 Pin­wheel blocks; press.

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 the A square re­fer­ring to Fig­ure 5; 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, re­fer­ring again to Fig­ure 5; press. 4. Re­peat steps 1–3 to com­plete a to­tal of 17 Square-in-a-Square blocks. Note: There will be eight blocks us­ing the or­ange A's and nine blocks us­ing the yel­low A's. COM­PLET­ING THE QUILT Re­fer to the Assem­bly Di­a­gram for po­si­tion­ing of blocks dur­ing con­struc­tion.

1. Join two Square-in-a-Square blocks with three Pin­wheel blocks to make an X row; press. Re­peat to make a to­tal of four X rows.

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

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

4. Join the K/L strips on the short ends to make one long strip; press. Sub­cut strip into two each 11/2" x 841/2" K strips and 11/2" x 621/2" L strips.

5. Sew the K strips to op­po­site long sides and L strips to the top and bot­tom of the pieced cen­ter; press.

6. Re­peat step 4 with the M/N strips to make two each 21/2" x 861/2" M and 21/2" x 661/2" N strips.

7. Sew the M strips to op­po­site long sides and N strips to the top and bot­tom of the pieced cen­ter to com­plete the quilt top; press.

8. Cre­ate a quilt sandwich re­fer­ring to Quilt­ing Ba­sics on page 94. 9. Quilt as de­sired.

10. Bind edges re­fer­ring to Quilt­ing Ba­sics on page 94 to fin­ish.
