Make a Pinwheels On Point with Fence Rail Quilt with Jenny Doan of Missouri Star! (Video Tutorial)

Make a Pinwheels On Point with Fence Rail Quilt with Jenny Doan of Missouri Star! (Video Tutorial)

Hi I’m Jenny from the MSQC. And I have such
a fun project for you today. This is one of those quilts that looks like you did a lot
of work but it’s super easy. Let’s take a look at it. So here’s this quilt right
here. And it is a fence rail right here you can see the fence rail with a pinwheel. And
this is so easy to do. So let’s get to it. To make this quilt what you’re going to
need is one packet of 2 ½ inch strips. We’ve used Land of the Free by Northcott. And this
is just a really fun patriotic look. Really good. You’re also going to need a yard,
let me see, a yard and ¼ of whatever you want to use for your pinwheels of both colors.
So I have a yard and ¼ of the background right here. You can see that right here. And
then I have a yard and a ¼ of this blue right here. And that makes the whole quilt right
there. Fun, quick and easy. So the first block we need to make is the
fence rail block. And so what you’re going to do is you’re going to open up your strip
packet . And there are 40 strips in here. And you’re going to make ten sets of four
strips in each. So you’re just going to put your strips, you’re going to take them
out like this. Put four in a row, just like this. And I have two here that are already
sewn together. And you’re going to make a strip set that has four pieces in it. So
I’m going to go ahead and we’ll go over to the sewing machine and sew these two together
and then attach it to those and that will make our whole strip set. Alright so let’s press this open. There’s
a couple of things with a strip set that you want to watch out for. One is that there’s
no folds on the top. So you want to make sure that your strip set is really open. You have
no little folds or pleats in there because that will change the size of your block. Because
what we’re looking for now, what we’re going to do is we’re going to cut these
in squares and put them as blocks. Now if you want you can flip this over, make sure
all your seams are going the same direction or you know however you want them. But make
sure they’re nice and flat. And then we’re going to cut this into squares. So what I’ve
done here is I’ve folded this in half so I can get double cuts out of each strip set
like this. And I’m going to measure how tall they are. So let’s see here. This is
going to be an 8 ½ inch, it’s 8 ½ inches high. So we’re going to cut over 8 ½ inches.
So right here we’re just going to cut these at 8 ½. What I’m doing here right first
is clean up this first edge and cut off all my selvedges like that. Oop. Just like that.
And then we’re going to cut these into 8 ½. So I’m going to count, one, two, three,
four, five, six, seven, eight and a half. Make sure that I have my blocks. Just like
this. And again, one, two, three, four, five, six, seven, oop we don’t want that to move.
If it moves you need to reline it up. So we’ve got one, two, three, four, five, six, seven,
eight and a half. Be very careful. There we go. Make sure that’s nice and sliced. And
then I’m going to open this up and see if we have enough for one more block. And we
should. One, two, three, four, five, six, seven, eight, oh almost a half. That was almost
a little miracle right there. We almost got that perfect. We have to trim off just a little
bit. There we go. Ok so we got all these cut. It looks, you’re going to get five from
each strip set. And to make the quilt you need 48 blocks so you’ll have a couple of
extra blocks but that’s ok. So this is our one block. Now we need to make
some half square triangles for the corners. And I know that doesn’t sound like what
we’re going to do for the corners because basically we always kind of snowball the corner
to give it the look. And that’s exactly what we’re going to do with a half square
triangle which is a little bit of a trick. So that’s kind of fun. So what you’re
going to do is, you’re going to need to make some half square triangles. We’re going
to that with two ten inch squares. Remember you’re going to need a yard and a ¼ of
your contrasting colors to make those. You’re going to put them right sides together. And
we are going to draw a line, an X corner to corner on each side. And you can see that
I’ve got that here. You can line up your, your ruler corner to corner. You’re going
to go ahead and draw your line. I like to start from the middle and go to the edge on
each side. Then we’re going to sew quarter of an inch on either side of the line. So
you can see I’ve already done that on this side right here. A quarter of an inch along
this line. And we’re going to go over to the sewing machine and do this other line
as well. Let’s do that. So I line up the edge of my presser foot along
the line this way. There we go. And I’m just going to sew down the side of the line.
I let the line be my guide. And then we’re going to flip this around and sew down the
other side. Normally you make a pinwheel with quarter square triangles. And the way I set
this, it’s going to look like we went to all that work. But we’re just using half
square triangles. And you know turning them a little something so it’s a little bit
of a trick. So now we have our block sewn a quarter of an inch on either side of the
line. And what we’re going to do is I’m going to line up my block here on my mat.
And because they’re ten inch squares I want to cut it in half both directions. So I’m
going to use my, the edge of my fabric and my mat to help me line up because I know this
is, this is going to be five inches is half. And it should make, you should be able to
cut right through where your X goes in the middle, your criss cross. And so I’m going
to do it on both sides, horizontally and vertically. And then we’re also going to cut on the
lines in between our stitch line. So on our drawn lines we’re also going to cut. This
is going to give us eight half square triangles. You’re going to do this, you’re going
to make, well you’re going to make a bunch of these. Let me see I have it written down
over here how many you’re going to make. You’re going to make 13 of these sets. And
so we’re going to take these all over to the ironing board now and we’re going to
press them open. We’re pressing to the dark side which is our blue. Our seam will go to
the blue
just like this. Alright. So now we’re going to do something that
I don’t, I don’t ordinarily do. I don’t not do it but I don’t always do it. And
we’re going to square up our blocks. To do that I’m using the Block Lock ruler.
And I want my blocks to be at 4 ½. One of the cool things about the Block Lock is it
has this, like a little divot in here where it’s cut just a little, in a little deeper.
And what that does is it locks in on the seam so that it doesn’t, it won’t move you
know. It’s very very, it makes it very easy to square up a block. So it locks in on your
seam and then you can just cut it, trim it up on all four sides like this. And you can
turn it because it’s locked in there. And just make sure you stay lined up on your edges.
Just like that. And we’ve squared up that block. To square up a block means it’s the
same on all four sides. And so we need to do that to all of our blocks. So I”m just
going to go ahead and do that. And this one is almost perfect. Ok, so we’ve almost got
all these done. I want to show you a couple of more. The squaring up is really important.
Now on this ruler if you, because the, the, the divot will lock on either side you need
to make sure that it’s, see it’s hanging off here so you want to flip it around and
just lock it on that, edge of that seam. This will pull back. You want to make sure this
is lined up exactly here. You’re looking at a 4 ½ inch square so we’re lining up
our edges, or the, the block, the actual ruler is 4 ½ so it will be, that will make it super
easy. And then we just trim off your excess. It just really makes a clean block for squaring
up. And one more little piece over here. Now I get to show you this magic, how this
is going to work. So what we’re going to do is we’re going to take our half square
triangle and we are going to fold it in half this way. Do you see what I’m doing here?
So now we have the two colors here on either side. And we’re going to press those so
that those stay down. We’re giving ourselves a sew line because we’re going to use the
half square triangle to snowball our corners. So now we’re taking all of our half square
triangles and pressing them so that your two, you can see the two sides of your colors.
And it looks like a quarter square triangle. I was so hunting for an easy way to do these
quarter square triangles and when I hit on this I was like, yes, yes this is another
one of those cool things. So I’m pretty excited about it. Alright. So now what we’re going to do, and this
is important because your squares have to end up on the same two sides of your block
and they have to end up the opposite colors. So for instance, on this right here, we are
going to lay this block on here like this and we’re going to lay this block on here
like this. We are always going to something these two corners. If we sew one block this
way and one block where it’s on the other, the opposite corners, it’s not going to
work. We want, when these come together we want them to pinwheel. So they have to be,
they have to be opposites like this. And they have to be on the same two corners. So this
is important. Oop, I got this one, ironed this one a little bit off. Let me repress
that a sec because I don’t want to sew that off. There we go. So what I like to do is
I like to stack up my block or my fence rail blocks. I like to stack them up in a stack
like this. And then, and, and it doesn’t really matter what colors are at the top or
bottom. It matters that you put your squares on the same two sides and that they’re opposite.
So you have blue, white, blue, white, just like this. I hope that’s making sense to
you. So what we’re going to do on this I’m
going to open this up right here and I’m going to sew it on my bottom left corner.
Always. You know I mean you can choose the bottom right if you want, just make sure they’re
all on the same corner is what I’m trying to say. So then I’m going to sew on this
line right here. Then I’m going to come right back around half an inch over and sew
it again. And then we’re going to cut in between those two. And so let’s go to the
sewing machine and sew these corners on. We’re going to do a couple of them to make that,
that this makes sense to you. So right now I’m lined up my corner my half square triangle
on the corner. I’m sewing on the sew line on my press line right down like this. I’m
going to flip this around. And I’m not going to measure, I’m just going to come over
about a half an inch and sew another, another line of stitching. Now we’re also going
to do that to the top. And so again I’m going to lay my corner back to make sure I’ve
got my opposite corners like this. So I have blue, white, blue, white and you can see they’re
opposites. So I’m going to open this up. We’re going to sew on the sew line, just
like this. Line it up on the corner. Sew on the sew line. Straight across. Then we’re
going to flip this around and you’re sewing a half an inch seam. It’s going to, what
I kind of do is I move my presser foot so that it’s about a quarter of an inch away
from the seam. And that ends up being about a half an inch. And then we sew straight down.
And that gives you room to cut them apart because we don’t want to waste this little
edge. So now what we’re going to do, we have these
two pieces sewn like this, we are going to trim right in between these two right here.
We’re going to trim in between. We’re going to set this aside. And we’ll press
that open. Just like this. Let me see if I can get those open. So trim right in between
those two, just like that. Set that aside and we’re going to press this open. Just
like this. Alright so we’re going to want to do this to a few of our blocks. So let’s
go ahead and do that. I’m going to head over to the sewing machine and do a few more
so you can see how these come together. Ok so we have one more block to do here. And
we’re going to make sure that these are laying the exact same way as our other blocks.
They have to be exact on the right corners and going the same direction so that our pinwheels
will work. Otherwise we’ll have little diamonds which might be cute but not what we’re going
for on this project. So we’re going to line up our corner, sew on our press line, come
in a half an inch and sew again on both sides. Both opposite sides of our block. Here’s
this one. And line it up on the corner. And then we’re going to whiz it around like
this, sew a half an inch. And then we’ll cut those apart. And we’re to the fun part.
Well all of it’s fun. I do, I enjoy the creating process. I enjoy the, the oops process.
I enjoy the trying process. I love it all. I just, there isn’t much of this I don’t
love, I tell you what. And I think most of us are that way. Alright so now we have our
little stack of them. You’re going to do this to all your blocks and finish them up.
You’re going to need 48 blocks. And I’m going to press these back right here so they
lay nice and flat. And again I can’t stress enough that they need to be going the same
direction on the same corners. So here’s what I’m talking about with the same direction.
Each one of your blocks should look identical to this. So you should have white, blue, white,
blue always on the bottom right corner. So that’s how, that’s how they work because
otherwise when you go to put these together they won’t make a pinwheel. But ours are
going to make a pinwheel because we got them on the right. So. What we’re going to do is we’re going
to match our pinwheels up. To do that we have to turn, turn our blocks so that the pinwheels
line up. And we’re going to put the next block. And what that does when we do this
is that it makes this, it makes the pinwheel look. So we’re going to turn this. And all
of our blocks are now going to pinwheel together and they’re all, they’re going to line
up. This one is going to go over, down, over, up. Just like that. I mean it just becomes
this cool thing. And so what I did was I put my blocks together in these big blocks of
four. And then I set them in here. So like this is one big block here. So it’s one,
two, three, four big blocks across by one, two, three down. It makes a quilt that is
54 by 69. So it’s a kind of a fun size quilt, good size quilt. But now we have all these
pieces left over right here. So you’re going to get a whole stack of
these pieces left over. And they’re going to look like this when you open them up. So
let me iron open some of these that we cut off. And if you want, if you want your measurements
to be exact when you sew around the other side then you have to actually measure and
mark. I didn’t measure and mark and so mine are all going to be about the same size which
again means that we are going to need to square them up. So what I did, I used these in the
border around my quilt, look. See all this, that’s all those little tiny squares. Doesn’t
that look like so much work. And it’s all these little tiny squares. So what I did again
was I took my little square up block and this is obviously bigger than my block. And I laid
it with my blue side facing down and I came as far as I could. Flip my block around to
make sure that I’m actually doing this the best measurement I can. I think I went for
3 ½ inches on each block. So what I did was I trimmed them down to 3 ½ like this. And
then I’m going to flip my block around and measure 3 ½ from this side. Oops I have to
flip this one around too. If it ever looks a little wonky to you just turn it around.
3 ½ and got to make sure I’m doing this right. And so, so I squared all mine up. Just
like that to 3 ½. Then what I did, you’re going to have a whole stack of these, and
then you’re going to have way more of these than you actually need. But what I did when
I did my border was I took my little blocks. Let me see if I have some, that I’ve made
sure that all the blues were on the bottom, sewed together, sewed together. Just sewed
them together in a really long strip. Now when you square these they, they may be a
little wonky. Like you may not have the whole blue or you’ll only, you know I mean because
when you start cutting them up you’re going to end up with, you’re going to end up cutting
off some of that blue. And now all mine ended up, I mean this blue piece right here is what
I’m talking about. Not all of those ended up the same size. But you can’t even tell
it in the border. So I just went ahead and trimmed them up to 3 ½ using my center, my
center seam right there. It locked my, it locks the ruler right in place. And then because
even though like this one is a little smaller than this one but you’re not going to notice
when you start putting them together. So what I did was I sewed them together in long rows.
As soon as I got all of my blocks together I put one little 2 ½ inch border around the
outside just to frame it in. And then I put this cool, you know, pointy edge. And I got
that whole border out of my leftover blocks. So I just thought that was a really fun idea.
I don’t like the waste and because we were cutting so much off the blocks I decided to
use that in the border. And when I got it all on there I didn’t even want to add another
border. I just thought it looked perfect. And so I hope you like how that looks. It
was a really really fun block. So I hope you enjoyed this tutorial on the fence rail pinwheel
from the MSQC.

  1. I absolutely enjoyed this tutorial!  I LOVE Patriotic Quilts.  Must be the old Marine in me.  I love this easy, but difficult looking block.  And the use of the little left-over triangles…brilliant!  I have been chopping the snowball corners off and using them as starters and enders, but I like this so much more.  That's a trick I'll use from  now on.  I'll be sharing on Mule Town Quilts so my group is sure to see this great quilt.  We will be in fine form for Independence Day.   Thanks Jenny.

  2. LOVE this.  Being a newbie quilter, it looks alittle above my ability level at this point!  Jenny, your tutorials make it look like ANYONE can do it!!

  3. Thank you SO much Jenny! Exactly what I have been searching for. My American Aunt- in-law asked me for a quilt. This will suit her just right. You are awesome! Every week I am floored by the new ideas you come up with.

  4. I have watched all your videos and you have taught me everything I know about quilting. I have made made 8 king size quilts over the past 18 months and I can't stop. I admit I am a quiltaholic!! This is a great design and will be my next quilt. I cannot thank you enough for your enthusiasm and great tutorials. I am always waiting for your next tutorial to be uploaded. Suzanne from Brisbane, Australia.

  5. My only problem with all these amazing tutorials is that I never can decide which one to make next! 🙂  This is a great quilt, and I think the border using the leftover bits is fantastic.  I even have some patriotic material laying around…..

  6. love the pattern, already had a fun, bright strip set, then bought the fabric for the pin wheels today.  headed to a quilt retreat in August and this will be my project.

  7. I recently found your site and now I'm on project overload, which project to do first ?!!   This quilt is beautiful and is definitely on my to-do list.

  8. What an awesome variation on the serendipity design! I think this would make such a cute quilt for the "Quilts of Valor" project. Thank you so much for sharing your ideas with us, Jenny!

  9. I love this quilt an the video is great, but is there anywhere where we can all of the measurements without having to replay the video several times to find the measurements? I have Electric quilt and I tried to draw the basic quilt but the size doesn't come out to what she did and I'm wondering what I did wrong.

  10. Yes beautiful pattern I love it and all your
    Patterns n videos!!! 😍😍😍
    Bought lot of fabrics n supplies from you
    Wish to meet you!!!!!!
    Have a great day!!!!!
    God bless
    Love u my friend🌹

  11. I love, love, love all of Jenny's tutorials. But, I fell in love with this quilt immediately. I have my fabric and hope to finish the quilt before going on the cruise with Jenny next April.

  12. Happy Birthday Jenny!
    Thanks so much for your wonderful positive attitude and all of your wonderful quilt ideas. Have a great day!

  13. Thank you for another great tutorial and 2 more quilts to do. I have been holding onto fabric looking for the perfect idea/pattern and you have inspired me, again!

  14. What a beautiful quilt. I love all your tutorials and all the tips you give. I share the tips with my quilting group. hope that's o.k.

  15. Hi Jenny, I love your quilting and more than anything I love the iron you are using.  I live in India and would like to have one.  Is there any way I can order one for me
     suitable for Indian standards.

  16. I am presently making a quilt using this block.  I would love to purchase the block lock ruler, but am not able to find it on your site.  Is it available through Missouri Quilt Co ?  THanks a bunch

  17. Really enjoyed watching this, unfortunately it stopped at 13mins. Will try again later and then I will attempt to make this quilt.

  18. This was the first time I watched a tutorial all the way through.  Certainly won't be my last.  My question is how do I get the written instructions for the quilt?  Was able to write down the supplies but didn't see the instructions.  Thanks so much.

  19. I loved the video and I finished a queen size quilt  in four days and now it is off to be quilted. I wasn't sure how to add a photo of it so instead I sent it to your show and tell. Love all your video's and your instructions are great!

  20. I  watch all of your great videos and save them.  Now I will attempt to sort them into type of precut used so they're easier to locate.  This is an especially nice one.  I do all my own quilting so would love suggestions at the end of each video as to potential quilting methods to enhance the completed blocks.

  21. Me encanta su tutorial aunque no entiendo inglés le comprendo lástima que no ponga medidas x escrito, me encanta sus tutoriales.

  22. This is so beautiful!!!!!!!!!!  You are amazing!  Sitting here wondering how you come up with all the fabulous ideas for quilts, etc.!  Thank you so much for all the tutorials!

  23. OMG!! I wanted to see what the "dislike" thumb comments showed, but it added "Me" as a "dislike".  That is so incorrect.  I love it and I have actually started making it with Batik shades of the ocean colours with the pinwheels done in very pale green and cream solids.  I am enjoying this quilt. Thank you so much for this fantastic opportunity.

  24. Is there any way to get a written version of this pattern as I am deaf and I cannot hear the measurements you are apparently giving?  I love the look of this quilt but I really need it in a written version.  I am an avid quilter and it gives me something to put my hands and mind into while dealing with this new deafness that I am having to learn how to deal with.  I do not know how to sign yet so I am having a really tough time right now I am just trying to find a way to deal with my new challenge.

  25. I love this and I think even as a beginner I may be able to tackle!  Just love the boarder with the leftovers! Thanks Jenny!

  26. Thank you Ann this is a great video thank you ,I'm going to use this for my next quilt,I love watching your videos,

  27. I have watched several of your videos this morning (also subbed) and I love that you don't waste material. Well done!

  28. Love everything you do and have always thought you were the smartest woman on the planet because of the Easy way you did the pinwheels, sewing around the outside of the square. Why did you do the long way around this time? I realize you sell new products, and that little square up tool became the high light of this video, which not complaining, just thought you could still use it and make sales even with the Easy way of pinwheeling. So why do the lines and cut and lines and cuts, when you have turned a 'sewn around the perimeter pinwheel' into many different types of quilts?  Just curious? And again you are top of the quilting world in my eyes! Love your attitude, talent, and for sharing. Also beautiful quilt. Thanks

  29. Love the tutorial. I need to do this. I need that square up ruler with the ridge for center diagonal. I square alot. Where can I get it and what is the brand.

  30. Love it, my kind of quilt!  waste not want not.  Love watching your tutorials as well, you are so down to earth and clear and concise!

  31. you have always encouraged us with your wonderful team (family) and imagination. Thanks for it!

  32. Jenny, I just love all of your tutorials, so inspirational! And I'm learning how to actually use all of the beautiful pre-cuts I've purchased!! Today I bought your deal of the day; In Stitches. With it's red, white and blue colors I know that it will make a beautiful Quilts of Honor that I may donate for a war veteran. I recently purchased the August 2014 issue of Block at Meissner's in Sacramento. It has so many wonderful patterns, photos and ideas that I have ordered all other back copies of your Block magazine, and subscribed to future issues. Thank you for all of your clear and enthusiastic tutorials. Because of your efforts I feel that I am a much more confident, and productive quilter.

  33. Love this quilt. I was watching and trying to figure out how it was all going to come together before you got to the reveal spot in the video and then i got it. It is such a clever quilt. Thank you.

  34. why did this video just send a notification to my phone? I do not know the first thing about quilting and have zero desire to learn.

  35. Hi Jenny — Louise from Canada !!! Loved your show this AM — Your just the Best !!! I also was watching -How is it going to turn Out ???? -But you do make it easy !!! Thank You

  36. no 1 Lov all the videos & how she explains everythng so well. Im really loving this 1 so putting this 1 on my quilts to do list 🙂

  37. I love the way this is put together. I don't think I'll use strips with print. looks to busy. but I love it. I was sad to she Jenny put all those little squares to the side but then she did the border! BAM! over the top. 😆

  38. I love everything you do. I feel that I have learned so much from you Please keep up the good work thanks again

  39. I love it, too! I can hardly wait to make it but I might make it bigger. 🙂
    I really appreciate these tutorials and learning how to do things easier.

  40. Jenny is as nice and friendly in person as she appears online. I love how you find new ways to redo old patterns. The sewing of the leftover triangles not used, and reusing them in the edge is genius! I will use that idea again. I hope you can come back to the River Heiritage Quilt guild in Cape Girardeau again. You have been my favorite speaker, EVER. I have used several of your ideas making quilts, and work out well.

  41. I love this and it's so much easier than it looks but just a reminder when sewing long strips together so each trip in the opposite direction so you don't get a curve in your strip set

  42. Thank you, Jenny for another great tutorial! I don't know if I just have Christmas on the brain because I am watching this on Dec 19th but I was thinking this would make a wonderful pattern for a Christmas quilt using a Christmas theme strip pack/roll and red/white pinwheels (which would be a little like peppermint candies), anyway think it would work, will have to keep it in mind for next year.

  43. How cool is this?!!! I do have a question. When snowballing the corners, whatis the reason to sew a second row of stiching a half inch away? I get that its cut between the stitch lines. The fabric being cut away and used as the border is already sewn together so those pieces aren't going to fall apart. Why cant you just sew one line and cut a quarter inch away? Maybe I'm missing something. I love the patriotic fabric and the border is just fabulous! Thank you for sharing all you knowledge and techniques.

  44. I would love to purchase this square up ruler you used can you please let me the name and i believe the size was 2 1/2 (not sure) so i canpurchase it from your site Thanks Jenny!!

  45. Love this quit! -and to to continue utilizing the leftovers to make a border to reduce waste YEAH! If there were further left overs a throw pillow or table topper will be in the works, too. This is what i LOVE about precuts-less waste 🙂

  46. wow loved it. Jenny is the best for tutorials. Going to try this for my grandson who just joined the Coast Guards.

  47. Snazzy border! I have smaller half square triangles cut with another quilt I am making… I will make the border with them… Plus a pillow covering or two, maybe a wall hanging.

  48. I did finish this quilt a little over a year ago before the Caribbean cruise with Jenny and Lynn Hagemeier. I love it. I would like to do another one just like it, but I can't find that fabric. It is sold out "forever". I guess I could get similar yardage and cut my own Jelly Roll. I have two sons who served in the military. One did 24 years in the Navy and another about 10 years in the Army and National Guard. So I would really love to give each of them one. I love the quilt and I really enjoyed making the border. I have made several of Jenny's quilts, but this one was the most fun. They were all fun, but this one is my favorite.

  49. Jenny, when you are building the 4 piece block at minute 17:08 it looks like the four pieces are not going to finish evenly. Was there any trimming involved after the four pieces were put together to form the center pinwheel. I have my blocks ready to set and I want to make sure mine turns out as beautiful as yours did.

  50. Sooo so cute!! Love this!! One day can you do a video of some of the quilts that you make from all the pinwheels you make from all the left over edges you cut off? I have a few and can't figure out what to do with them.

  51. I fell in love with this quilt. I set out to find Canadian themed fabric and am currently working on it. Thanks ever so much for the tutorial!

  52. My sewing group is wanting to do this on an all day sew day.  My concern is that we don't have the internet where we sew.  Is there a way to download this video so we can share it that day?

  53. Thank you for sharing this beautiful quilt! I just learned how to make pinwheels and was thinking of something patriotic. This is great!! You helped to take me to a different level!!

  54. jenny … how come you don't do these hst's like the ones in the original pinwheel: sew around the square then cut the square diagonally in the middles? … i hope that makes sense …

  55. want to make this quilt but think I will not have the colors contrast so much, hard to see the fence rail. LOVE that pinwheel.
