Mosaic Pinwheels Quilt Block

Janet Wickell - Designed in EQ6

The pinwheel spokes in the Mosaic Pinwheels quilt block vary in color value. I used red and gold at the center of the block -- two warm colors, and two dark (cool) colors for the rear spokes and the background.

The quilt block is assembled entirely with half-square triangle units. The instructions lead you through assembly using my favorite quick piecing technique. Alter cutting instructions to use a different method.

Choose one of two block sizes.
