Initially, I had seen a picture of this pinwheel pattern. I had the idea it was made from a square placed over four blocks and recut. I got to work and figured it out using newspapers. I didn’t know that there was a book and template already!
I found this link to the pattern AFTER I made mine: Square Dance. The dimensions of the tool were similar to mine, but off some. Maybe theirs is better.
The PDF also linked to a published book. I have since purchased it. There are lots of variations beyond the simple version I made.
Square Dance by Martha Thompson
(The link is to a newer edition! Mine was the first issue. I wonder if there are more/newer designs in the newer one?!)
Check the process of making this quilt! It was sooooooo fun to assemble!
This is the pieced quilt top I started with. I used stash fabrics in red, red/white, red/black, and black/white squares. You must also have a border.
Next, I marked and cut my top. Part of the fun is that you end up with squares which you can use for the border, the back, or another project!
READY to quilt and finished!
I want to make another quilt!
