Framed Tilt-a-Whirl block (Unfinished 16.5” block)Untitled.jpg

Cutting requirements:

Blue fabric:                 2- 14.5” x 2” strips

                        4- 4.5” x 8.5” rectangles

Pink fabric:                4- 2.5” squares

                        1- 4.5” square

                        2- 14.5” x 2” strips

White fabric:                4- 2.5” squares

Follow the following tutorial for the middle of the block.  http://www.diaryofaquilter.com/2013/05/virtual-quilting-bee-block-6.html

I have changed the sizes, so refer to the list above.  

Once you have completed the tilt-a-whirl block, add your longer strips.  You will be adding these strips using the same technique as you did for the tilt-a-whirl block.  These are sewn on with partial seams.  Look at the first tutorial in the list above to help with the outer strips.
