Make More Blocks for a Larger Project!

Four complex-looking pinwheel blocks come together for an eye-catching wall or table quilt. The blocks are much easier to make than they look. Folded fabric creates the intricate and appealing design.

Each block starts with 5″ charm squares. Cut your own or work with pre-cut packs for interesting results.

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!

PLEASE NOTE: Quilting Digest does not sell or otherwise provide patterns directly. We showcase patterns and projects from various vendors, bloggers and other sources.
