At the risk of boring you with more pie and tart blocks, here's method #4 courtesy of a suggestion from Penny (no blog). A friend I was talking to about it told me she has made this block by this method too. I wanted to see if I could get it out of the strip provided in the BOM. Yes I could!
For the large pies I started with 4" squares and for the small, 3" squares.
The HST were then trimmed down to 3 1/2'' and 2 1/2" respectively and sewn into a pinwheel block.
you can see what I did with the circle at right. I think that this is a great method for some but it takes a little longer because of the trimming for me so I might stick to my method#2. The circles finish at 5 6/8" and 3 6/8" I know it's a funny measurement!
