Fancy That! Quilt Along - Step 4 (For Reals!)

Hi y'all!!  Thanks so much for all the kind well wishes you've sent and for being so patient with me.  It's been a long couple of weeks. 

As I said in my very brief post, we are making 4-1/2" pinwheels this time around.  We need (68) 4" blocks so just subtract out the number of 4" panel blocks you have to see how many pinwheels you need to make.

We are going to use the same system for making our half-square triangles as we did last time.  You'll need the following for each pinwheel:

(1) 4-1/4" background square
(1) 4-1/4" main fabric

Place one of each square, right sides together, and pin:

Sew around all 4 sides:

Cut on both diagonals:

Press open and square each HST to 2-1/2".

Arrange 4 matching HST's into a pinwheel and assemble your block!

And that's it!  I need to make 32 of them myself but you have time!!  My sewing room is a disaster right now as I'm refinishing both my ironing dresser and my sewing desk so I'll get to these ASAP!  I've so enjoyed seeing all of your progress!!  Keep using #FancyThatQAL in your posts so I can see all of your beautiful work!!
