Block Assembly
Now onto the Assembly of your Block
and Don't forget we have a Video Tutorial for you
to follow along with you can find the Video

*****Note****
We are using SCANT Quarter inch seam allowance throughout the pattern and pressing Seams Open.  Please Reduce your stitch length
2.0 or 1.8 depending on your machine.

First, we are going to create our Half Square Triangles (HST)
You will be creating 20 Purple & White HST.
Reduce your stitch length to 2.0 or lower to what
The machine will allow,
We do this as we are opening up our seams. This action of lowering
Our stitch length will stop the block from coming apart.
To Create your 20 HST units, you will,
take your white and Purple  triangles from cut A
with right sides together sew an
Scant ¼" inch seam allowance from one corner
diagonal to the opposite corner.
Now Press open.
Your HST should now look like the picture below
Repeat with the remainder of the triangles,
by chain piece these to save you some time
You will now have 20 units. You will
square these up to 2.5" square.

HST

Next, we are going to create our Pinwheels
as seen below in the diagram,
for full instructions on how to make these
please refer to our supplementary video HERE
These should measure 4.5" as well...if they don't then
trim them, by taking a little off each side. This will stop them from
looking a little off.

sew these units together to create your
Pinwheels as shown below




Remembering to use scant ¼” seam allowance and press your seams open

We have posted on YouTube.
