Baby Pinwheels Quilt

This quilt was made for DD’s piano teacher who is expecting her first baby shortly.

It was easy-peasy to make.  We used 2 x charm packs of It’s a Hoot by MoMo for Moda fabrics, plus the same number of squares of plain fabric – in this case Moda Bella in Snow.

The pinwheels were made using this tutorial from Missouri Quilt Co.

Join 2 charm squares right sides together (one plain and one print) using 1/4” seam around the four sides.  Cut diagonally through each side, which makes 4 blocks of joined half-square triangles.  Form into pinwheels and sew back together using 1/4” seam. Trim back slightly to 5.5”.

Using 2 packs of print charms plus 2 packs of plain (or yardage), you will make approx 84 blocks.  I joined them together in a 9 x 9 block configuration, using 81 blocks. I machine quilted in straight lines.  Once binding added, finished quilt size approx 46.5” square.
