Pinwheel Twist for Quilt Block Mania

Follow my blog with Bloglovin  this is a test to try to fix the issues I'm having with Bloglovin - but feel free to follow. Now onto a new quilt block.

This month we're getting creative with traditional blocks, as the Quilt Block Mania theme is Traditional with a Twist. I went simple, reworking a pinwheel block for an easy stunner I'm calling Pinwheel Twist.

I just love the striking placement of colors in this one! Here's the Design Seeds color palette we got to work with,

and I'll admit, my block was inspired by the picture. In it I see not-quite-open buds nestled amid a tender green blush of leaves, with a beautiful blue sky in the background. I think my block captures that perfectly!

Take a look at all the other designers who were inspired this month - there are some beautiful traditional blocks with a twist to be had!

My Pinwheel Twist block features easy piecing, perfect for a beginner quilter. For one block, fat quarters are all that's necessary.

Finishing at 12" x 12", Pinwheel Twist is available for free until October 4.
