It’s week 11 of the quilt block challenge with Riley Blake where each week we’ve played with a classic, simple quilt block. This week we’ve got a variation on a pinwheel quilt block tutorial. There are LOTS of pinwheel quilt block options. I really love the way the triangle pinwheel pops on this version.
This week’s block tutorial is by Amanda of Jedi Craft Girl. I love her blocks made using her upcoming Scaredy Cat fabric collection.
Typically each week I make a 6″ x 6″ (finished) and 12″ x 12″ (finished) version each block. Since this block has a set of four flying geese units, I used my four-at-once no-waste flying geese short cut for both blocks.
You can find my Flying Geese method here as well as a printable chart telling you what size pieces to cut for both blocks. (You’ll need four 1 ½″ x 3″ finished geese for the small block and four 3″ x 6″ finished geese for the large block.)
Next week is the last week of the block challenge. After that I’ll be putting mine into a quilt and sharing how I did it. (Which, at the moment I’m still not 100% sure what that ends up being. But I’m excited to find out! lol)
Here are the 11 blocks so far. If you are looking for the previous blocks for the quilt along you can find all of them linked below If you’re sharing on social media use the hashtag #RBDBlockChallenge.
I don’t have specific fabric requirements for this challenge, but it’s a good one for using up scraps or favorite Fat Quarters.
