A Quilt Along, My Life

1-A-Day, 3″ Blocks — Pinwheel Oops!

  Pinwheel Oops! Block

I hope you had another nice weekend at home.

When the weather is cold it’s a lot easier to stay put, right?

It also means I wear my winter coat,

my heated vest (turned on),

a hat & gloves on my 2.4 mile walk each day.

We started walking every day a couple of weeks ago.

I look forward to it each evening.

Are you getting out?

You should!

Today we’ll make this cutie.

Are you familiar with those bread starter things?

Because of my oops! last week on the pinwheel block

you may have a Pinwheel Oops! block starter…

Not much work for my scrap basket!



  • 2 black rec’s. 1″ x 2  1/2″
  • 2 black rec’s. 1″ x 3  1/2″
  • use the too small pinwheel block(s) from last week trimmed to 2 1/2″
  • OR
  • 2 sq’s. each cut 1  7/8″ to make 4 half-square triangles 1  1/2″ unfinished


If making the hst’s you’ll need to trim the “ears”.

Assemble the 2  1/2″ pinwheel block.

Remove the couple of stitches in the seam allowance

& the seam will press very flat.

Sew the 2 black 1″ x 2  1/2″ rectangles to sides of pinwheel block.

Press seams toward rectangles.

Sew 1″ x 3  1/2″ rectangles to top & bottom.

Press seams toward rectangles.

I only made 1 block before I noticed my mistake

(sorry I still wrote a mistake into the instructions!)

& today I’m too lazy to make any more!

But it’s still 1-A-Day so I’m OK.
