Pinwheel Flurry To Showcase Beautiful Yester-year Fabrics
Pinwheel Flurry is an applique and machine piecing pinwheel delight! A softer version of the Black-eyed Susan pattern. Pinwheels in 1930’s reproduction prints will get a second glance for sure. A lot of mixing and matching for an unco-ordinated yet balanced effect cause you to linger over the design of this quilt.
The quilt is so lively and bright. To top the pinwheel, an unexpected Black eyed Susan pinned right in the middle of the pinwheel pulls the disconnected fabrics together.
The pattern is quite versatile. Reduce the amount of blades for a totally different effect. Such as this one where only four blades were used, the black-eyed Susan omitted. The fabric chosen is in soft pastels, perfect for a baby quilt. Suddenly the pinwheels are adapted to a baby quilt.
Center a black C circle on the block unit. Using a 3-mm-wide, 3-mm-long blanket stitch and black thread, machine-appliqué the black C circle to the block unit to make a Black-Eyed Susan. Make just one block. Perfect table topper.
Use any amount of blades to adapt the pattern.
