    Deb, thanks for figuring out the yardage. That seemed to be beyond me.

    Sharon, LindaK is having a difficult time opening up the link, and can't seem to get into it even by doing google search. Is there anything on your end that you could do to help?

    Snow - you can do any colors for the blades. Even scrappy if the scrappy is alike.

    And mariposa is having difficulty as well. hmmm. Don't understand why some can open the link and some can't. If all else fails, go to google.com, type in eleanor burns quilt in a day merry go round. It is the first (link) and then when that is opened up, it is the third pattern.

    All I can do is repost the link

    http://www.quiltinaday.com/freepatte...GoRound_12.pdf

    Usually if it won't open on a computer - it has to do with the individual settings on the computer- not the link itself , sorry I can't be of more help ....

    Island, they can be any color(s) you want. Just as long as all 12 are the same. I just broke down the colors to make it easier if one was doing two colors or wanted to do 3....have at it on this block. Anything goes!

    Deb posted these figures earlier:

    I figured out the yardage. All of these are based on 40 width of fabric. Background - 7.5 square - you will get 5 squares per row, need to cut three rows of 7.5 equals 22.5 inches: Plus 2-1/8 x 16 strips (two needed per block) - you will get two strips per row, need 24 strips, you will need to cut 12 rows of 2.5 (give yourself a little leeway) equals 30 inches. 30+22.5 = 52.5 ....1-1/2 yard should be good. For safety insurance you may want to get 1-2/3 yard for background. This blocks shows only two colors - so based on that - yellow - you will get 5 blocks per row, need three rows = 22.5 =2/3 yard needed, may want to get 1 yard for safety insurance. Blue - you will get 2 strips per row, need to cut six rows = 1 yard, but I would get 1-1/4 yard, again for safety insurance. Now, if you want to put in two colors (split the blue) 2/3 yard of two different colors, and if you wanted to split the yellow as well - 1/2 yard of two colors would be plenty.

    1-1/2 yd- background
    For a 2 color pinwheel:
    Color 1- 1yard
    Color2- 1-1/4yard
    OR
    For a 4 color pinwheel:
    2/3 of TWO colors and 1/2 of TWO colors

    Hope I read that right.

    And Island was having a concern about how hard it looked at first. Now she is turning them out right and left...That is why she is the leader of this swap!

    Sharon b and everyone else. It is really very easy if you follow the steps with the pictures. I love making them now. I was the same with the dresden plates and I made three sets on them. If I have enough background fabric I will do another one. The tri color one is for the swap. I have one with blueberries that I have to match to another fabric. But I
    could always use three colors again. If you make a sample block you will be amazed on how easy it goes together. Now get busy and just have fun!!!!

    Looking in on this one. I like Eleanor Burns quilt patterns, they do go fast once you follow the steps. I just finished my the top from the spring dresdan plate swap. Now to get quilted. If I get my UFOs for April done, will do this swap. but until then will pop in and say hi and watch you all show your beautiful work.

    Thanks for re-posting. I feel silly now. I just clicked the link and typed. Sorry. This block reminds me of a "stack and wack(slash?)" So colors is a free for all as long as they match. Quilt store and pre-washing the fabric again like the churn dash?

    Yes prewash... My least favorite step! And actually for clarification, Deb did say we need 1-1/2yds background fabric, but MAY want 1-2/3 for safety insurance. I wanted to edit it above but there was no edit key so I think I didn't try soon enough.

    The first measurements I gave are for pretty accurate with a smidgen extra. I know we all make goofy cuts, so I usually get the higher amount. I would rather have a little more left over than be too short. 1-1/2 is enough for background but I like 1-2/3 as it allows for a little error now and then.
