Pattern Description:

Pinwheel Spinning Around
finished size 70" x 70"
Designed by Heather Jones

Pinwheel Spinning Around is my modern twist on the traditional pinwheel quilt pattern. The large scale of the pinwheels in this pattern is the perfect way to showcase some of your favorite fabrics. The combination of beautiful prints with lots of negative space creates an elegant, modern design that is suitable for both beginner and advanced quilters alike.

(fabrics are 42" wide)
White Fabric: 4 1/2 yards
1/3 yard each of 10 fabrics
-or, you can use fat quarters if you'd prefer
Binding fabric: 3/4 yard

In my version of Pinwheel Spinning Around I used fabric from the Crazy Love collection by Jennifer Paganelli for Free Spirit Fabric and Designer Soild from Free Spirit Fabric.
