Teaching myself to quilt

I learned the triangle and the hourglass. Then I learned the cathedral window. (that was hard)
Last night I taught myself the Pinwheel. Very easy.

Cut two equal squares, sew 1/4th inch seam all around. Mark across corners.

Cut on the lines.

Open the triangles up and place design as a  pinwheel.

Iron the squares open.

Sew together.

Iron them open, and sew together.

Almost finished. Just needs some trimming.

Made two different sizes. Had to prove to myself that I could do it.
I am so very proud of my work. Just need a couple hundred more to make a quilt.
Maybe I'll just make a coin purse. lol
