I'd like to sign up for this one. I'd like to do a basic pinwheel. I'll think about another set. :)

i ended up taking a photo of the picture in the book!!
because the block is a 10", i will add the border piece again to the other side to make it a 12.5"
sorry the picture is a bit blurry, the photo from the book doesn't enlarge well.

The blocks look beautiful.

As a reminder to everyone, if using jelly rolls or other precut fabrics, it is still necessary to prewash the fabric so that all of it is uniformly treated.

well, i've really enjoyed myself today sewing the 'four sisters' blocks, and i've almost finished them well ahead of schedule!!
i've decided to make a 3rd set!
this time i will make 'floral bouquet' another jelly roll block as i still have alot of the strip fabric left. i'm using 2 jelly rolls.
here is a photo of the block from the book; 'jelly roll quilts' by pam & nicky lintott.
love jacquie xxxxxxx
