I am working on a block for Tiny Tuesday, but it isn't quite done yet. I have a template ready, but need in progress pictures and more detailed instructions. I'll be able to work on it in the morning when I can get back to my machine again. I actually went back to the new house this evening expecting to have some sewing time, but the smell of fresh polyurethane had me laying down the next coat and heading back to the old house again. The freshly finished floors are so shiny! I'll take pictures tomorrow. We are doing it in phases so that we can still get things done in other rooms while the fresh floors have a chance to cure fully.
While all of that is happening, I'll also go back and revisit directions for last week's block as sadly, I was informed it was a quarter inch too small. Also the number of background squares was off. I'll get those fixed so that everything turns out as it should. Thanks so much to everyone who is proofreading for me and letting me know when my math is off. It is a bit of a crazy time right now, but I see sewing in my future. Our two houses will be merged fully within the next couple of weeks and the old house will be someone else's new house before the end of the month.
Link to block directions so far.
Print out the template from the google document provided.
Cut out the template and gather 8 scraps of dark blue fabric.
Continue folding and trimming before each new wedge is added.
Prepare a smaller quarter circle from the template and applique it on top of the fan blades. You could also just trim this edge with a quarter in seam allowance just like the outside edge, I just thought the dimensional effect would be nicer if the center was visually on top.
In case you don't like applique, you can also use curved piecing to sew the three pieces together. I have been known to do curved piecing from time to time, but maybe not on this scale. The choice is yours!
This block will be set straight in the finished quilt.
