30 Quilt Blocks in 30 Days - Block 10

Block number 10 means we are 1/3 of the way through the blocks.

It seems like they are flying by.



Here is block #10

Chunky Pinwheel

Size Unfinished: 10 1/2" x 10 1/2"
Finished Size: 10 x 10"


Cut  8 rectangles 3" x 5 1/2" - four red / four white



Stitch them together as laid out with 1/4" seams.
Stitch the rectangles right sides together,
pairing one white with one red. 
 Next stitch the units together to form the Chunky Pinwheel block.



Wouldn't a quilt of Chunky Pinwheels be fun?


I can see them all different colors with a white background too.

"Scrap busting" on schedule for today! This block is going to be put to use in a scrappy quilt...now the hard part...what to use for the background. :)

Looks like a cartwheel.

Is the quilt you illustrate four blocks across and five blocks down with a w inch border? I am working through these blocks as an exercise to improve my cutting skills and practise making 1/4” seams. I am making four 5 inch blocks of each example to then practise machine quilting. Thanks for these.
