It’s Great for Display Every Spring and Summer!
Colorful pinwheels twirl in the breeze in this charming little quilt. A swirling ribbon creates a lovely border, while buttons hide any mismatched points in the centers of the pinwheels.
The pinwheels are made from 2 1/2″ mini charms, although leftover 5″ charm squares and 2 1/2″ jelly roll strips can also be used. Or cut your own from fabrics in your stash.
The ribbon effect is created by using two greens, one slightly paler than the other. Depending on the fabric you choose, it may also work to use the back of the same fabric for the lighter pieces.
Once completed, the quilt designed by Taunja Kelvington from Carried Away Quilting is 26 1/2″ square. Learn more about this charming quilt here.
PLEASE NOTE: Quilting Digest has featured many patterns from vendors participating in the Craftsy Marketplace, most of which have been deleted by Craftsy. It's going to take awhile for us to hunt down new sources for those patterns. In the meantime there are many links to patterns on our site that no longer work. We apologize if this article contains one or more of those links and appreciate your patience while we straighten things out. Thank you!
