Fat quarter friendly, provides a beautifully coordinated array of fabrics, cut into charm squares. This happy quilt is totally scrappy so no fuss, simply cut and sew.
If you love charm square quilts, this Pinwheels and Patch quilt has a little twist. Choose fabrics that lend themselves to a patchwork feel, bright summery prints with colorful blossoms and birds, butterflies and bluebells! Or mix up a favorite which can easily be cut from scraps large enough to render 5″ squares, and yardage. Those sweet little heart prints are perfect for the pinwheels.
Use the sneaky addition of a half square triangle for one in every fourth square. Squares of fabric display a mix of meadow flowers and spring blossoms, a splash of bright colors in red, blue and yellow to make the feature pop. Fabrics for the hst’s should be repeat colors, and as the block is constructed the prettiest pinwheel emerges!
12 x 20″ blocks with a colorful pinwheel in the middle, make a striking 54″ x 72″ throw. The quilt is perfect for Spring and Summer, however the versatile design can be used for any season, including a fun Holiday quilt!
