A great way to use a Layer Cake of precut 10″ fabric squares. Or cut 25″ x 10″ squares from your stash. Either way you use multi-fabric pinwheels to create this beautiful design. The pinwheels are easily stitched and then the blades curved and embellished. The curve is just sew simple. The waste from this fantastic technique is used to make a border. Making this block produce both the pinwheel and small triangles ready for use in your border – two for one! How simple is that?
