I got some more striped fabric from a friend in my small quilt group. And I had some from the charity group stash as well. So, I made two more striped quilts and added pinwheels in 2 sizes. I like the modern look of these tops, and hope they find a nice home.
STRIPES AND PINWHEELS
55” x 66”
Striped material – need 72 each 6” squares cut on the bias – I started with 3 yards and cut all on the true bias
White – need 16 each 6-1/2” squares and 32 each 3-3/4 squares – 1 yard
Accent color – need 16 each 6-1/2 squares and 32 each 3-3/4” squares – used scraps to total 1 yard
Make half square triangles out of the white and accent color.
Trim the 6-1/2” ones to 6” square
Trim the 3-3/4” ones to 3-1/4” square
8 of the large pinwheels (11-1/2” x 11-1/2”)
16 of the small pinwheels (6” x 6”)
Sew the columns together, then sew the rows together, pressing as you go. You may have to sew in sections rather than in rows.
Hint: if you have more or less of the striped material, you can alter the number of the smaller pinwheels to make up the difference.
