Dd was working (she volunteers in a local charity shop) on Saturday afternoon, so I seized the chance to sew these pinwheel squares, which will eventually be the indigo panel. Had to put them away before sewing together though.
Mmm, pinwheels. Top tips (or, what I learned from my mistakes!)
- Press seams to one side when making the triangles
- Pin, unfold and and check the alignment of both pinned sections before sewing together, unless you want to wield the seam- ripper
- It is easiest to sew the pinwheels together if the pressed seams are in opposite directions.
I'm liking the finished pinwheel squares and best of all, I only had to buy one FQ of indigo fabric - the one with the little people on it. All the others came from stash, and include a pair of my old Monsoon shorts from the 1990s. Which is consistent with my decluttering policy for 2012.
