Prim PinwheelsHave you ever fallen in love with a block or a quilt that has a dozen seams and you break out in a rash just thinking about piecing it? Then, your blocks come out less than perfect and it's difficult to keep them flat and square? That's why I LOVE my layered patchwork technique. It simplifies traditional pieced blocks by eliminating some of the seams and pressing that can distort and cause lumps in your blocks. Our Prim Pinwheels quilt is the perfect example of that theory. Instead of pesky y-seams and lots of lumpy seam allowances in each block, I've layered triangles over precut Jelly RollTM strips for dimensional, primitive pinwheels that are so easy to make!
|Intricate looking pinwheels made easy with layered patchwork|
and Jelly Roll strips. A JR + 3 fabrics is all you need to create
a huggable lap quilt for someone on your list.
|Layer triangles over JR strips; stitch. Piece pairs together, then 4 of a kind.|
Layer quarter cut triangles to each side for easy diamonds/pinwheels
that lay flat and measure the correct size.
