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…
We started with a stack of Riley Blake solid grey squares and a huge pile of orange, yellow and red scraps. You may be having a feeling of deja vu because a couple of months ago I made a version of these blocks for Do.Good.Stitches.
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…
So many fun fabrics were used… all warm and bright. This is such a fabulous quilt to make if you want to use those piles of scraps you have accumulated…
Our finished quilt measures 45 inches x 54 inches and will now head out to be quilted and bound before heading to our Charity for this quarter, Raphael House.
I am also pleased to say the cat has inspected the quilt top and deigned that it is acceptable..

It’s gorgeous! Love the colors!
I love wonky, think we should have way more wonkyness in quilt blocks 🙂
I agree complete… wonky rules!
…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.
Husbands definitely count in the animal inspector category…. well mine does anyway.
gorgeous! excellent way to use up scraps, which I’ve got plenty of!
It really is a scrap buster… and so easy to make.
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!
I love how these look and how the colors/values interact.

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.
