Spin Wheel Block Tutorial

If you are interested in making these blocks. I hope this tutorial will be useful.

You will need: 1-(3 1/2 x 4 inch) rectangle... 3-( 2 inch strips) 18 inches long,...6-(2 x 6 inch) rectangles.

1. Fold 3 1/2 x 4 rectangle in half lengthwise. Trim at a 60 degree angle from folded edge to raw edge on both sides.
2. Open rectangle and press.....It is now your hexagon for the center of your block.

3. Sew the 3-(2 inch wide strips) together........they need to be atleast 18 inches long.

Note: The bottom fabric is the background.....The middle fabric will be the star points.
The top fabric will be inner diamond.

4. Trim strip set at a 60 degree angle.

5. Cut 6-(2 inch segments) at a 60 degree angle.

6. Sew a...2 x 6 rectangle to each segment. For a total of 6 units.

7. Trim the right side of unit at 60 degree's, 1/4 inch outside point of center diamond.

8. Turn the block to trim the left side even with the diamond.

9. You now have 6 of these units.

10. Putting it all together

I made a few more of these Spin Wheel blocks. They really do go together fast!! I hope you enjoyed my first attempt at a tutorial.....LOL ;)~ It's Friday! Have a great weekend!

I started a quilt in 2008 using this block from a pattern publish in Fons and Porter Magazine. I had to stop quilting for awhile to take care of an elderly parent with dementia.
I just pulled this project out of the closet! I searched the internet for instructions on this block when I found your tutorial - it is wonderful! Thank you!
