I know I am repeating myself, but I am amazed at the creativity of some quilters! Some have added their owns special touch in the inner border or changed blocks around or even added elements to the blocks. The difference in fabrics in this design also changes the whole look of the quilt. I don't know if that is because it is a mystery or if the quilters would have picked the same fabrics if it was not a mystery. I'd love to hear from you whether you would like to do another medallion style quilt and whether you would want it as a mystery or know ahead of time what the finished product would look like.

This block is another with the dreaded Flying Geese units but I'm assuming that you are now experts at them! 

I used my Cutting Corners template set for this block to cut out my half-square and quarter-square triangles. If you are using this set, you will cut 2-1/2" strips for both.

For the quarter square triangles in the pinwheel I cut them according to the instructions but I trimmed the corners with my triangle template.

After piecing the two quarter-square triangles, they should be the same size at the half-square triangle they are being sewed to. Adjust if necessary.

When sewing the four pinwheels, check to make sure that the darker fabric is facing in the right direction before sewing the four together and spin the center seam to reduce bulk. If you don't know how to do that, check on one of my previous blogs where I posted a video on how to do that.

Sew the 9 sections together as in previous posts.
