About the Double Pinwheel Quilt Block

Finished Block Size: 12" x 12" square

Each Double Pinwheel quilt block has sixteen units, eight (quick pieced) half-square triangle units and eight squares.

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