Easy Pinwheel mini quilt tutorial

Hello fellow Art Gallery Fabric lovers! I’m Amy Smart from Diary of a Quilter and today I am sharing a quick little table topper project using one of my new, favorite collections, Color Me Retro by Jeni Baker. I have been collecting vintage pyrex and other dishes for a while now so when I heard Jeni was designing a vintage-dishware-inspired fabric collection, I knew I would love it! And I was right.

Playing with this fabric made me so in the mood for spring! I’m glad I have some cheerful color on my table to keep my hopes up.

Here are the fabric requirements for this 24″ x 24″ square table topper. (The same yardage will work for a 12″ x 48″ table runner.)

  •  10 Fat Quarters from Color Me Retro collection (I used all 10 because I wanted to feature the entire collection, but you really only need 4 fat quarters worth of yardage for this project.)
  • 5/8 yard solid turquoise. (The coordinating Pure Element is Fresh Water)
This project consists of one simple 6″ pinwheel-type block. Each block requires 2 strips 2″ x 14.5″. I used the same solid as one of the strips in each block, but you could use a variety of fabrics if you like.
Sew strips together and press toward the print fabric. Carefully sub-cut into 4 units 3 1/2″ square. 
 Rotate the units as pictured.
Sew units into two rows as pictured, pressing seams toward the print. Then sew two rows together to create a 6 1/2″ (unfinished) block.
After center seam is sewn, “pop” the seam in the center of the block (un-pick a couple of the stitches). 
Press each seam (from assembling the 4 units) toward the print strip in a counter-clockwise direction. This will help seams match up when you go to sew your block together.
Create 15 more blocks. 


I sewed my blocks 4 across by 4 down to create a 24″ x 24″ square. You could also sew them 8 across by 2 down to create a 12″ x 48″ table runner.

I then used my remaining fat quarter prints to piece together a quilt back 27″ x 27″. (You could also use 3/4 yard of fabric for this backing.) I like that I can have a reversible option for my table.

From there layer the top, batting and quilt back and quilt as desired. I used my walking foot to sew quilting lines 3/4″ apart. When quilting is finished, trim excess batting and backing fabric so that edges are clean and square.

For the binding, cut 3 strips 2 1/2″ wide from your remaining solid and sew them together end to end. Here is a binding tutorial if you need one.

And that’s it! This is a quick pinwheel-type block if you want to make lots of blocks and create a bigger version of this look too.

And if you would like to win a fat quarter bundle of Color Me Retro from Art Gallery Fabrics, leave a comment on this post. Giveaway will be open until Friday, February 22, midnight MST. GIVEAWAY CLOSED.

    Doodoodoo….I feel like I am in the twighlight zone! I had to look twice! I am working on a quilt with this pattern different color way though and was just thinking how pretty it would be in brighter modern colrs/patterns! I am working on the one now for my mil for mothers day gift, so I would love to do one for myself!

    Love Color Me Retro! Would love to make a table runner with it. I think I could easily adjust the order of the squares. Thanks

    I love looking at pinwheels although I haven&#39;t had the occasion to make one yet. This pattern looks even more easy than the traditional one and so fresh and modern! Thank you, I will definitely have to try it!<br /><br />I&#39;m not sure the giveaway is open to non-US residents but fabric would make the perfect 18th birthday present so I&#39;ll try πŸ˜€
