At the September mentoring class we will be making a 3-D Pinwheel table runner. It looks really complicated, but it’s actually easier and faster to make than a traditional flat pinwheel block.
Basic sewing supplies:
1/3 yard of two fabrics for background and the pinwheels.. Cut three 11” squares from each material.
NOTE: the squares will be further cut in class.
15” pieces of material WOF for sashing, borders and binding.
Cute three 2 ¼ “ strips from the material for binding.
Cut three 2” strips from the material for sashing and borders. Cut two of these strips down to 35” for top and bottom borders.
Cut two 10 ½” x 2” pieces from third 2” strip for side borders.
Cut two more 10 ½” pieces for sashing. These will be cut down to 10 ½” x 1 ½”.
Flange is optional – if you want a flange, you will need 1” pieces of material cut the same lengths as borders pieces
