Exploring the Basics - The Double Pinwheel

ETB Double Pinwheel Badge

I've shared how much I love the Pinwheel block in earlier posts (you can find my post about Pinwheel blocks and steps to make your own here).  The Double Pinwheel block takes the joy and happiness of the pinwheel block up to the next level by doubling the pinwheel fun - hence the name!


How do you make a double pinwheel?  Visit my post on the partial half square triangle block to get step by step details on how to make a partial half square triangle.  Why visit that post?  Because making FOUR partial half square triangle blocks - and proper block placement - will yield a Double Pinwheel block!


I love bright colors and quilts filled with vivid fabrics.  The double pinwheel block offers a terrific opportunity to fill your blocks - and quilts - with tons of color!


I pulled all of these elements together - bright colors, multiple fabrics, double pinwheel block - in my Whirlygigs pattern!  Double pinwheel blocks, multiple bright fabrics, two different background fabrics, multiple block sizes - Whirlygigs has it all!
