Pinwheel Quilt-Part 1

I thought for fun, I would document the makings of a pinwheel quilt. I found some fun polka-dotted fabric and a classic quilt that I was inspired by.

I started with a good hot iron to iron my pre-washed fabric to make it easier to cut

I started with a polka dot print in 4 colors: red, navy, yellow and teal (1/2 meter of each) and 1.5 m of plain white

I cut 4 inch squares out of each. First, cut 4" strips, then cut the strips into squares.

I cut 40 squares from each color and 160 white squares.

The colors are cut and stacked (note to self: use pre-cuts next time)
