First pin wheel quilt ever, cut each square diagonally to make a triangle then sewed a colour piece to a white piece. To make a square. At this point had to recut the piece back into a good square. (Since have learnt to sew across the square, using a colour and white piece, right sides facing, once sewn then cut either side of the stitching this keeps the material in shape.)
Once you have 4 squares you can then stitch them together. I was a couple of squares short so had to buy some more material. 3 fat quarters of the red, yellow and green. The remainder made the birder. I gave 2 borders as my daughter wanted the quilt bigger, think it works well.
The backing is black and white letters and the binding I wanted red polka dot. As I couldn't find any the right width I bought the material and cut 2 1/2" lengths of the width of the material. Love this quilt. For rudest daughter.
The main picture is without the backing.
