A very useful unit
The pinwheel is a very useful little unit which can be used in all sorts of quilts and in all different sizes, which are easy to calculate since you use 4 of them.
You do need to pay attention to the way the wheels spin – they should all spin in the same direction, but you could decide that it is a design feature if they don’t.
More on the half square triangle
In this block we again work on the half square triangle unit but smaller. We continue to use the method of sew first and then trim back to allow us to have accurate piecing on the sewing machine.
Use Scraps another time
Pinwheels are a brilliant way of using up small scraps of fabric, which in turn would make a lovely scrap quilt.
Jelly Roll Quilt (or 2 ½” strip) option
You could create this unit from 2 ½” strips of fabric in conjunction with the Thangles product.
