I have chosen 4 fabrics from this mix to start with for the first block. I will make one in each color way.
I have chosen these two to make the same block. However they will go into a new tree skirt for the Christmas tree.
For each block you will need 1 - 5 1/4" square, this is the large square print. 4 - 2 1/2" squares of solid color fabric for the small pinwheels in the center. 4 - 2 7/8" background white squares. 4 - 2 1/2" by 4 1/2" background white rectangles.
Now on top of each 2 1/2"x4 1/2" rectangles place the 2 1/2" colored squares on the right side of the rectangles. The diagonal lines should be placed so they are in the middle of the rectangle at the top and in the bottom right corner at the bottom. You will now stitch directly on the drawn lines.
Now place 2 of the 2 7/8" squares in opposite corners of the 5 1/4" as shown in this picture. Now you will stitch on both sides of the drawn line using a scant 1/4".
Place one of the 2 7/8" squares on each heart shape piece you have. Now stitch a scant 1/4" from the draw line.
Lay out as pictured here. When pressing the pieces, press the seam allowance toward the longer white 2 1/2"x 4 1/2" rectangles.
Check back later on Friday for the next block in the quilt along. If you just want to make the block, the measurements I have given you makes a 8" finished block. Let me know if you make a block, I would sure love to see them. If we have enough interest and participants I can set up a flickr group. If you have any questions ask them in the comments and I will be sure to reply.
