Thank you Joan for posting the picture. Post Image finally decided to work for me today. Great block!!! Looking forward to seeing more.

WELCOME to ALL. ENJOY making this block. We have made many Half Square Triangles this year so you should have no troubles. It is easier and faster (at least for me) to make it in sections. More acurate although watch your seams as this also is a no forgiving block.
ENJOY!!!!

I saw this quilt on Pintrest. MSQC calls it the Disappearing Pinwheel but she makes hers with 10" blocks which will give you a smaller block. I made it using bigger blocks but in all honesty making the sections of the block I found much easier, more acturate and faster.

We have made these sections over and over in other blocks this year so I thought it would be a very easy for everyone to make.

I did add info in the thread. I hope it helps.

Happy Stitching!!!

Welcome to the FUN Cindy. Thus is an easy and fun block to make. Well be interesting if you can stop at two ... teehee
In answer to your question? We have a number of nurses in our QIAD Family. I don't know who is a hospice nurse though. Maybe someone here can answer that for you and let me know as well.

Feel free to lurk Izzy. I always say if I can't make a certain block it will never stop me from looking at it. :) :)

Haha! I said 2 because I don't have much fall fabric so I might have to go see what pretty fat qtrs I can find😊.
I just retired from nursing and would love to meet other nurses here @ QAID as well as all the quilters!

Caroline. You need to FB me so I can answer you quickly. We are in the road today but I will try to get with you over the phone tomorrow. Maybe we can figure this out. Other than that I would let QIAD you need to talk to there technically section. I don't know if Patrick is still working there. Don't have them take a message. They can find someone.

On a Row by Row Run today. Picked up a lovely background. Can't wait to share it.

JoAnns is having an awesome sale this weekend. Would be a great time to pick up some Kona White Solid Cotton FOR THE FUTURE 😁😁😁

Happy 😊 day !!!!
