    I have started making a "Trust Me Quilt" Does anyone know if it has to have uneven number of original blocks to start with to get the pinwheels to come out correctly? :lol:

    i've never heard of a "Trust Me" quilt, so you couldn't trust ME to answer correctly. :mrgreen:

    A Trust Me Quilt is one where you sew squares together and put a border on them and then cut them apart with a template to make a windmill pattern

    I've just looked at the link that Patrice posted regarding The "Trust Me Quilt". Over here on the Pond we call it "Square Dance".
    Take a look at my Avatar, I made this at a workshop. I would love to make it bigger but just haven't got around to it.

    I have made one. There is a book you can get called "Square Dance" by Martha Thompson.

    They are fun to do.

    Now I know it's other name 'Square Dance' I have made one too. I just didn't recognise the 'Trust Me' title. It's intrigueing, and not quite so easy to sew the squares once they have been cut, as they aren't then on the straight grain (not on a true bias either), and I thought it a touch wasteful in fabric too, but the finished effect is very nice.

    I was thinking why not make the template bigger? I guess I'll find out after the book arrives. :?
