I started with 2 - 4" squares
Placed right sides together
Drew a line from the upper left corner to the lower right corner
Then drew a line from the upper right corner to the lower left corner
Sorry that the thread doesn't show up better! I sewed a scant quarter seam on each side of my drawn line
Another shot of the same block trying to get a better picture of the sewn lines...
Next comes the fun part! Time to start cutting up the block!
First cut is right down the center of the block
Next cut is straight across the center of the block
Now cut on the drawn line
You now have 8 half square triangles!!!
Here they are all pressed open ready to be squared up
See how tiny they are? I'm not certain how much I really like working with these tiny little pieces!
I just had to show you all the trimmings I got off those 8 square!
My next step was to sew them together in groups of two. Make certain you nuzzle those seams together!
Notice anything wrong with this picture?
Had to get the seam ripper out for this one! Learn from my mistakes, make certain they are all sewn together the same way!
Here come the Pinwheels!
Sew together and remember to set your seams!
Square up for the last time!
A close up of the back. Does everyone know how to open the centers of your block?
Finished size 2 1/2"
There you have it! 8 Half Square Triangles at once!!
