Fundamentals Sew Along - week 35

Hi Everyone:

     Where has the summer gone?  Even though fall is my favorite time of the year, I am sad to see the end of summer. I am enjoying some time at the cottage sewing and as promised this weeks blog post.

My Favorite Sewing Spot

This weeks block is called Propeller.  It is an interesting take on the Pinwheel block.  The first step is to piece 4 half square triangle squares using fabric #1 and #3.  Don't forget to trim those little triangles off the corners of your squares.

Add A Triangle To Your Half Square Triangle Squares

Sew 2 triangles to your pieced squares to make a pieced triangle.

 Arrange segments like this (see diagram below).

Looks like a nice little piece of heaven! I hope you can rest and recuperate a little there, Jeannie!
The blocks are really quite something. Your instructions are very appreciated.
