                                                     What a combo, what fun!!

                                                  enough of the hype...already!



This is my baby quilt for the Month of July, using my Island Batik scraps and my sun bonnet Sue die.

                                                       ---------------------------------

                     You need about a 10" square of fabric (preferably Island Batik) (shamelessly smiling here).    Put your fabric adhesive of choice on the wrong side of fabric.


                                                                            Fold it in half.



                                                               Fold in half again.


Then you take the folded edge as you see above and place  it between the top of the Sun Bonnet Sue Dress.  Cut...

This is what you get.  Iron on to ten inch square and blanket stitch down.  You will need nine of these.

Now you can put a small circle in the middle of the pinwheel or leave it alone as I have done.

Then I took the cut out and placed it on my printer at 45% to get the smaller pinwheel.  You will need 28 of these (sorry, you have to cut these out by hand, be sure to put your fabric adhesive on the back before cutting out).

You will need six 10" x  3" for the sashings between the rows.
As you can see, you have three pinwheel rows with a sashing between the three squares in each row.
Next you will measure your rows and come up with the length you need for the sashing going across.

You will need Two  28 1/2" x 3" for the sashings going across (your measurement might be different).

For the first border you will need two 1 1/2" strips measuring 28 1/2" for the top and bottom,
29 1/2" for the sides.
The last border 4" x 29 1/2" for the top and bottom,
4" x 33" for the sides (remember to always measure your quilt from top to bottom for the side borders and across from side to side for the top and bottom borders, we all sew differently).

Then you will place your pinwheels in between each square as shown on the sashings.

Then seven on the top and bottom and five on the sides.  Starting from the middle and working out centering them as you go.  Blanket stitch them down.

Quilt as desired.

Bind.
