A handful of half square triangle units give this easy baby quilt a lot of pop!
For a 36" square quilt, you'll need:
36 - print half square triangles (4 per block) (cut them from 2 1/2" strips with an Easy Angle ruler, or use your own favorite method)
36 - white half square triangles (4 per block)
180 - 2 1/2" print squares (20 per block)
18 - 2 1/2 x 4 1/2" white strips (2 per block)
18 - 2 1/2 x 8 1/2" white strips (2 per block)
Sew a white half square triangle to each print half square triangle. Press.
Sew the print squares into eighteen strips of four squares each and eighteen strips of six squares each.
Assemble half square triangles into nine pinwheels, one for each block.
Sew 2 1/2 x 4 1/2" strips to opposite edges of each pinwheel. Press, then sew 2 1/2 x 8 1/2" strips to the other edges. Press.
Sew four square long strips to opposite edges of the block. Press. Sew six square long strips to the other two edges. Press.
Make nine blocks and assemble into three rows of three. Quilt and bind. As always, if you make this quilt I'd love for you to send me a picture or link up to my weekly Let's Make Baby Quilts! linky party. There's a list of my free baby quilt tutorials over in the sidebar and you can find out when new ones are added by either following my blog or liking the Let's Make Baby Quilts Facebook page.
