    There are 50 pages total in each notebook, 10 of which are double-sided graph paper, because Ilike to draw quilt designs out on graph paper.

    I put bright red polka-dots on the back cover because that just seemed like the perfect finishingtouch.

    Here are the templates for the double pinwheel. When you print it out, make sure your printer is set at100%.

    Use the templates to cut out the double pinwheels. Start with six white {or your choice of light solid} squares cut at 1". Cut them in half on the diagonal and then use the template on the right tocut away the portion that will be the dark double pinwheel. If you need clarification, check out P.'sillustrated instructions . You'll be following the same steps, only on a smaller scale. The templateeliminates the need for measuring the angle at which you cut away the excess fabric. Use a "seam throughout.

    To make the pinwheels, use the smaller template on the right to cut out 12 pieces from your black fabric {or your choice of light solid} . Make sure that you cut them all the same way, with the templateright-side up. Use the line on the pattern as the grain line and cut your pieces on the grain.

    Assemble the double pinwheel following P.'s illustrated instructions . Make sure you read the partabout how to line up the smaller black piece on the white piece {hers are red and blue} , otherwiseyou'll end up cutting off all your points.

    To get started piecing your strings, you'll need a foundation. P. used phone book pages and thentore them away when she was finished. I used foundation sheets , with the intention of leaving them infor extra stability because of the small scale we're working with here. It did help with that, but eventhough the sheets are thin, they do add a bit of bulk and when you're working with small pieces, thatmakes things a little tough. So, it's your call if you want more stability with the foundation sheet or lessbulk with old phone book pages {or newsprint} that you will remove later. Whatever your choice,you'll need one 3" x 8" rectangle and six 2" squares.

    Mark each foundation piece with a line on the 45 and begin piecing your string blocks, usi ng the 1"strings on the 3" x 8" rectangle and the " strings on the 2" squares. If you need instructions on

    piecing your strings, refer to P.'s illustrated tutorial .

    When you've finished piecing your string blocks, trim around the edges of all of the pieces andsquare up the squares to 1" before cutting them in half on the diagonal. When you're finished, youwill have 12 string triangles and 12 black and white triangles. Piece them together and then squarethem up to 1".

    Assemble the pinwheels, again referring to P.'s awesome illustrated instructions . You will have threepinwheels when you finish, which should be squared up 2".

    paper on both sides of the page and avoid printing in the area were the binder goes through theholes. Insert the graph paper image file into the document, setting the size at 7.26" x 4.77". Usethe Position selector on the Picture Tools tab, to center the image on the printable area of the paper.I suggest printing a test page before you print on the Art Journal pages to make sure everything linesup right, based on how your printer feeds the paper through.

    To reassemble the journal, place the pages onto the binder, right side up. Thread the journal cover through the binder, right side up. Put the back cover on top of the, with the inside back cover facing

    up. Push the binder back together and then turn the back cover around to the back. Voila. Your Double Pinwheel String Quilt Journal is finished. Now have lots of fun filling it up with beautiful quiltideas!
