Have Fun Creating Your Own Version With This Interesting Quilt Block!

This beautiful “1930s Reproduction Pinwheel Quilt” was made by Jen Ivey of QuiltsClothsCovers (here’s her Etsy shop). It’s charming, homey and tugs at the nostalgia heartstrings, reminding us of quilts made by our moms and grandmothers.

While we don’t have a complete pattern, instructions for making the block are available (many thanks to Mary Hagberg for hunting this down!).

1930s Reproduction Pinwheel Quilt

The block, called “Double Star”, is fairly easy to make, although you will want some piecing experience under your belt. Cutting instructions are provided for 4 block sizes.

Make however many blocks you need for the quilt size you want, add sashing strips and cornerstones, and a piano key border. We do not have exact instructions but you can see how it is put together from the picture.

The blocks aren’t difficult but they are a bit fussy. The tutorial found here will help.

Update: Jen has generously informed us that the pattern she used for her gorgeous quilt is called “Pinwheel Star.” You can get it 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!

PLEASE NOTE: Quilting Digest does not sell or otherwise provide patterns directly. We showcase patterns and projects from various vendors, bloggers and other sources. Please make a note of where you access a pattern (the link in the yellow box toward the end of each Quilting Digest article). That way you can contact Support for that source if you have downloading problems or other issues. Thank you!
