The First Day of Summer

What are we thinking of the first day of Summer? What any red blooded, American Quilt Shop is thinking about - winter! Moda's holiday lines are already here and we are showcasing their Jovial Quilt.
The finished quilt
What it looks like in real life.
First you cut on the fold, discard the other triangle

Put the folded triangle between 2 pieces of background fabric and sew
Open the block on the stitched line, trim the tree

Trimmed and pressed tree

Add stem
Make pinwheels - fold square in half and fold end points to middle
Sew folded triangles to corners
Finished pinwheels

 This is a fun quilt to do while beating the summer heat indoors!
