MYSTERY SEASONAL SAMPLER SEPTEMBER 2014

Welcome back to the Mystery Seasonal Sampler.  Have you been keeping up with me each month?  If you're new here, I post a block(s) each month on the second Sunday of the month.  I started this Mystery Seasonal Sampler in January 2014.  The quilt will finish as a large queen size quilt.

September is always a reminder of school for me so of course, this month's block is a school house.



Here's what you'll need to cut.

Background fabric:
     1 each of the small triangle template labeled "background" and the reverse of it
     1 - 3 1/2" square
     2 - 3" x 4 1/4" rectangles
     1 - 2" x 2 1/2" rectangles
     2 - 1" x 5 1/2"  rectangles
     2 - 1 1/2" x 10 1/2" rectangles
Roof Fabric
     1 of template labeled schoolhouse (large triangle)
     1 - 3/12" square
     1 - 3" x 6" rectangle
Schoolhouse Fabric
     2 - 1" x 2" rectangles
     2 - 1 3/4" x 5 1/2" rectangles
     2 - 2 1/2" squares
     2 - 1 1/2" x 2 1/2" rectangles
     2 - 1 1/4" x 3 1/2" rectangles
     1 - 2 1/2" x 3 1/2" rectangle
Window and Door Fabric
     2 - 2 1/2" squares
     1 - 2" x 3 1/2" rectangle

Ground/Grass Fabric
     1 - 2 1/2" x 12 1/2" rectangle

Pinwheel background Fabric
     12 - 3" squares
Pinwheels Fabric
     4 - 3" squares of Blue print
     4 - 3" squares of Pink print
     4 - 3" squares of Green print



Assembly:

1.  Begin by making the cupola on the schoolhouse roof.  An easy way to cut the template with reverse is to place fabric right sides together and cut the template, both pieces at the same time.  Sew the background triangles to the cupola roof


2.  Make the 2 half square triangles.  Pair a background 3 1/2" square with a roof 3 1/2" square.  Draw a line diagonally across the background square, sew 1/4" away from the drawn line on each side.  Cut apart, press to the dark fabric and square to 3"





3.  Sew a half square triangle to each side of the 3"x5" roof rectangle.


4.  Sew a 1"x2" schoolhouse rectangle to each side of a 2" x 2 1/2" background rectangle.


5.  Sew the cupola unit made in step 1 to the unit made in step 4.



6.  Sew a 3" x 4 1/4" background rectangle to each side of the cupola unit made in step 5.


 7.  Sew this uint made in step 6 to the roof unit made in step 3.
 8.  Sew a 1 1/2" school house rectangle to each side of a 2 1/2" window square.  make 2 of these units.


9.  Sew a 1 1/4" x 3 1/2" school house rectangle to each side of a 2" x 3 1/2" door rectangle.



10.  Sew a 2 1/2" x 3 1/2" rectangle to the top of the door unit made in step 9.  



11.  Now assemble the school house together with the units made in step 8 and 10, adding a 1" x 3 1/2" background rectangle to each side of the unit.  



12.  Sew the school house unit to the roof/cupola unit.
 13.  Sew a 1 1/2" x 10 1/2" background rectangle to each side of the schoolhouse unit and a 2 1/2" x 12 1/2" ground/grass rectangle to the bottom of the schoolhouse.


Now you're ready to make the pinwheel blocks that will go on each side of the schoolhouse.   I forgot to take pictures as I was making the pinwheels but you've probably made pinwheel blocks before.  I'll walk you through it, just no pictures.  SORRY!

15.  Pair 4 - 3" blue squares with 4 - 3" background squares.  Draw a line diagonally across the background square, sew 1/4" away from the drawn line on each side.  Cut apart, press to the dark fabric and square to 2 1/2" (as pictured in step 2 above).  

16.  Lay out the half square triangles to form the pinwheel and sew together 2 to make a row.  Repeat for a total of 4 rows.


17.  Sew 2 rows together to make a pinwheel block.  Repeat for a total of 2 blue pinwheel blocks.



18.  Repeat the pinwheel block assembly for the other 2 colors (pink and green).

19.  Sew 3 pinwheel blocks together to make a unit.  Repeat for a total of 2 pinwheel units.  



20.  Sew a pinwheel unit to each side of the schoolhouse.  Ta Da!  You're done!



Here is the second color way.


I also made 16 more flying geese blocks for each color way.
