|Dutchman's Puzzle using two colours|
5a is the Dutchman's puzzle block which can be made in just two fabrics but to add interest and create a pinwheel within the design I have used three. I drew the block onto graph paper and then traced the four identical flying geese units onto Mothercare nappy liners. The units will finish at 6" square and the block at 12" square, (6.5" and 12.5" unfinished).
Paper foundations could also be used but will be torn out later whereas the nappy liners can stay in place.
If I wanted to have a brown pinwheel I would have arranged the units so that they rotated the other way . . .
