Wonky Pinwheel blocks PMQG style

This week we had another Portland Modern Quilt Guild Charity Sew day…and this time I had everyone making wonky pinwheels…loud, wonky, scrappy, fun pinwheels…

Pinwheel blocks Both these blocks used the fabulous tutorial from Greenleaf Goods but for the Charity Sew Day I went with 5 inch base block rather than 4 inch.  After a day of sewing, our small but productive team had 30 pinwheel blocks, each measuring 9 1/2 inches, done and dusted.

I then took them all home and sewed them together to make this…

I am also pleased to say the cat has inspected the quilt top and deigned that it is acceptable..

  1. …slate platters with slices of tangerine on them. It’s a joyful quilt, great work! I’m beginning to think that almost every quilter has an Animal Inspector in residence except me. I have the Husband.

  2. Absolutely beautiful! I’ve been looking for inspiration online for a week now and THIS is what does it for me. Great scrap-stash buster too, so that’s another plus!

  4. I love this quilt and with such a simple block the possibilities are endless. Thank you so much for sharing it! I will have to make some of these tonight.
