Trim-Free, Template-free Whirligig Block Tutorial
This tutorial makes a block that is 5 inches finished size.You will need two contrasting fabrics. I used a black and white print and a solid white.1.
Cut 3 ½ inch strips from a fat quarter or scrap.2.
Cut the strip into 3 inch pieces. You will have a few 3 ½ by 3 rectangles now.3.
Rotate your rectangle so that the long side is horizontal and the short side is vertical.Then place your ruler at a precise angle by placing it 1 1/2 inches from the top right of the rectangle and 2 from the bottom left. See picture below.
