1 Sherbet Pips Layer Cake |

1 1/4 Bella Solids White (9900-98) |

1/3 Yard Binding Fabric Sherbet Pips Gray Dot (18505-19) |

3 Yards Backing Fabric Sherbet Pips Girl on Swing (18500-11) |

Begin by choosing 12 of your favorite prints from the layer cake. These will be used for the snowball blocks. I chose the dog, scooter, & tree prints. From the remaining layer cake squares, choose 5 squares to be used for the pinwheels–I went with the solid/dot fabrics you see below.

Trim each of the Snowball squares to 9.5″ square. From the layers you have chosen for the Pinwheel blocks, cut a total of 7 strips 2.5″ x 10″ (1 strip from each square plus an extra strip from two of the prints). Subcut the strips int 2.5″ squares.

**From the remaining 25 layer cake squares cut:**

(48) strips 2″ x 10″ (these will be used for the pieced square border around the pinwheel blocks)–cut 2 strips from each layer cake square

(14) strips 2.5″ x 10″–subcut into 2.5″ squares (these will be used for the hst blocks on the corners of the Pinwheel blocks)–choose these strips at random from remaining layer cake squares, don’t cut more than one strip per fabric

(10) strips 2″x 10″–subcut into 2″ squares (these will be used for the outermost triangle on the Snowball blocks)–choose these strips at random from remaining layer cake squares, don’t cut more than one strip per fabric

**From the White Solid Fabric cut:**

(4) strips 3.5″ x WOF–subcut into (48) 3.5″ squares

(3) strips 2″ x WOF–subcut into (26) 2″ x 3.5″ rectangles

(6) strips 2″ x WOF–subcut into (26) 2″ x 6.5″ rectangles

(2) strips 2.5″ x WOF–subcut into (26) 2.5″ squares

On the back of each **white **3.5″ square, each **white** 2.5″ square, each **Sherbet Pips** 2″ square, and 1/2 of the **Sherbet Pips** 2.5″ squares draw a diagonal line from corner to corner.

*Please note that I do not have the white 2.5″ squares pictured above–make sure to include them just as the instructions read.*

**Assembling the Snowball Blocks**

Begin by sewing one 3.5″ white square to each corner of a 9.5″ layer cake square. Sew directly on the diagonal line–pay attention to the orientation of the diagonal.

Trim each corner 1/4″ from sewn line on each corner.

Press open.

Now you will repeat the same process using the Sherbet Pips 2″ squares. Place a 2″ square right sides together on each corner of the snowball block. You will sew a diagonal line directly on your drawn line–pay attention to the orientation of the diagonal.

Trim corners 1/4″ from sewn line & press open.

Continue until you have completed all 12 Snowball Blocks.

**Assembling the Pinwheel Blocks**

Sew together to complete the pinwheel unit.

Sew all of the pinwheel blocks in this manner.

Now we will begin sewing together the 2″ x 10″ strips in sets of four. Press open to one side.

Continue until you have sewn together all of the strips.

Subcut into 2″ strips.

Now we will sew one of the half square triangle units onto each end of 26 of the strip sets.** Please note: It is very important that the diagonals are oriented exactly as shown for each strip. **Press seams toward the center.

Continue until you have sewn triangle units onto each end of 26 of the strips.

Now we can assemble these blocks.

Begin by sewing one of the 4 square strips to the top and bottom of the pinwheel unit. Press away from the center.

You are ready to assemble the quilt as shown.
