How to Make Double Pinwheel Quilt Blocks
Double Pinwheel Quilt Block Pattern

Sew Double Pinwheel quilt blocks.

Janet Wickell

 

The Double Pinwheel quilt block pattern is sewn with sixteen units -- eight (quick pieced) half-square triangle units and eight plain squares of fabric.

Use the colors shown in my illustrations as a guide to help you assemble the Double Pinwheel block, but choose any colors you wish for your own blocks. I made my center pinwheel a combination of dark blue and bright yellow, and the pinwheel extensions are lighter versions of both colors.

Finished Block Size: 12" x 12" square
