Scavenger Hunt Sew Along - Clue Two

 * C l u e   T w o *
Who doesn’t love a pinwheel, they are so much fun,
luckily they’re simple and you won’t need a ton.

Ten little Building Blocks is all that you’ll need,
a few other prints and the center row takes the lead.
Before we get started on this weeks hint I just want to be sure
everyone is on the same page with their center block. Your
center block should measure 5-1/2" including seam allowances.
Please check out this post if you have any questions.

* H i n t *
Make ten small red and white pinwheels using cutting and
assembly instructions on page 50 of Returning to Temecula

Add corners to Pinwheel block
From dark brown print - Cut 20 squares, 2-3/4" x 2-3/4"
Cut in half diagonally once and add to each side of
pinwheel blocks. Square each unit to 3-1/2"
(See additional instructions for this technique on
 page 55 of Returning to Temecula)

Additional pieces - cut as follows:
Blue Print - 4 strips, 1-1/2" x 19-1/2"
Brown Print - 8 strips, 1-1/2" x 3-1/2"
Assemble Row One using diagram above.

Finished Row 5-1/2" x 43-1/2" including seam allowances

Nobody's Perfect!

Let me remind you that this quilt is probably one of my favorite
of all time, so in the end all this trouble will be worth it. 
The first Scavenger Hunt Sew Along post had a little math
 problem. I came home from the shop and tried to make it
work, but it is just not going to. So if you are one of those
 that got right on it I apologize. At least it is just one block. 
We should be good from here on out. I promise?
 The squares for the center block need to be cut 1-1/2"
instead of 1-3/8" as indicated in the book. That will
make the block 5-1/2" square, including seam allowance.

Scavenger Hunt Sew Along - Clue One

* C l u e   O n e *
Gather your supplies and lets get going,
it will be so much fun to do a little sewing.

Sixteen Squares is not quite enough,
but this center block is not all that tough!

* H i n t*
Make one block as diagrammed on page 8 of Returning to Temecula
To make the math work out correctly use 1-1/2" squares instead of 1-3/8"
Add additional squares to make a 25-patch as shown in photo above.

Finished Block - 5-1/2" square, including seam allowances

You will be constructing multiple blocks and will
be creating a one of a kind row quilt.

The quilt is very scrappy, I used both of my lines,
