One of my favorite YouTube creators of all time is Laura of SewVeryEasy, she makes such clear instructions that everyone can follow, even beginners! I learned how to quilt mainly because of her and her helpful tips. She does yet another quilt project that is so beautiful and neat-looking, just as I prefer my quilt projects to be. You can learn how to make this quilt with the help of this tutorial and the free pattern that comes with it.
This quilt is larger than the usual pinwheel quilt blocks, and then pinwheels are made out of strips rather than squares or triangles. With that said, you can use jelly rolls for this project along with a background fabric of your choice. This project may also look familiar to other quilters because the center also forms what is known as a friendship star. Watch how to make this quilt block now.
Cut the fabrics to size, then piece together the print strip, background strip, and print squares into a strip unit, and press the seams as you go. Get 9 strip units, then arrange them into a row making sure to refer to the diagram, stitch them to each other, and press the seams in 1 direction.
Repeat the same steps for the remaining strip units and you’ll have a total of 16 Irish pinwheel blocks. Arrange 4 Irish pinwheel blocks to make a row as instructed in the diagram, then stitch them together, and press the seams in 1 direction.
Continue making more rows, then join the rows together turning every other row in the opposite direction to form the pinwheel look, and press the seams in 1 direction. Add the binding and backing, and finish the quilt!
