mini pinwheel quilt block 7

"Pinwheel" Block 
Sample Quilt Top Layouts
November - BOM #7
page 2 of 2

This "Pinwheel" block is listed in Barbara Brackman's Encyclopedia of Pieced Quilt Patterns as block #1121.

#6 Reversed direction and color of the pinwheels in this 
smaller quilt gives more surface action than if the pinwheels 
were all facing the same way.

#7 These striped pinwheels have added thin sashing to outline each block.

#8 A single square of the pinwheel block is emphasized 
with a bright color at each point to give a different look. 
Construction methods show how to make this variation "B".

#9 Similar layout to quilt #8 above, but with pinwheels
 in solid bright colors on a patterned background.

#10 Another bold look, but with more of the 
squares in a different fabric to seem to float 
on the surface. This one would be 
best assembled in small, square units.
