The Splendid Sampler™: Block 46


The 46th block of The Splendid Sampler is called “Twirl Time”, honouring the pinwheel depicted on it, by Sarah J. Maxwell (Designs by Sarah J). Although it might look like a tricky block, the truth is it was not… except for some little mistakes in the pinning process that required the presence of the seam-ripper.

For the flip-and-trim corners I left the underneath fabric as a guide, trimming only the excess of the added fabric. It helped to put the block together; however, it involves a thicker seam too.

And I decided to skip a little bit the instructions and not play scrappy, as it’s not really my style for this sampler.

The block’s pattern and link party are here.
