This paper foundation pieced "Pinwheel #9" block
was designed for this BOM Series by Susan Druding using EQ4. When this BOM
series is complete I plan to put the PRJ4 files online for downloading.
#1 These blocks are put on point. See #4 below for a straight horizontal set. An allover block pattern with a simple background. By using 2 shades of a color for the pinwheel arms and deeper colors for the outline area, you can create a 3-D effect.
#2 - Here the 1/4 block is used alone and on point instead of forming pinwheels.
#3 - This quilt is similar to #2 above, uses the 1/4 blocks, but rotates every other block row to point first up and then down.
#4. Here the blocks are no longer on point as in #1 above, points are outward bound. The striped background adds interest.
#5. Using the blocks extra-large can make bold pillow top or wall hanging. Again, stripes are used lined in both directions.
#6 Similar to the quilt above, #5, but with very different coloring.
#7 - A staggered block arrangement where each row drops down one block from the row above. This quilt would look nice hung horizontally on a wall, too.
