Pattern Description:

I absolutely adore the simplicity and clean, crisp lines of this modern throw quilt. It offers such a fun way to showcase your favorite assortment of prints, without using up a ton of yardage from each (each pinwheel requires just 1 fat quarter or 1/8 yd off the bolt, and you'll still have leftovers to play with). Whether you're brand new to foundation paper piecing, or a seasoned expert, you're sure to have fun putting your spin on this design in your favorite fabrics, to create a totally unique, fresh modern quilt. I pride myself in offering patterns with clear, concise instructions and diagrams, as well as helpful tutorial and resource links to help boost your paper piecing confidence. This pattern also includes full-size printable templates.
