    The fabrics in this quilt are happy colors. I really like it. I don't know the pattern but any pattern with these colors will be good.

    Clear as mud right?? Maybe someone with a visual can help you. I can't draw it on my computer but I can see it in my minds eye.
    That's only the outer border, which is partial blocks. Main blocks look to be 4"x8" rectangle bordered on two sides with 2"HST, 4" strip of white, 2"HST, making an 8x8 block. Blocks twist and turn across quilt.

    I don't think this would be difficult to piece. Looks like 5" charm squares sewed into the pinwheels and then cutting 2 charms into 2.5 x 5 inches and then a piece that fits in, maybe 9 inches ? Hope you find the pattern.

    How about breaking it up as 3 vertical rows? Then you could keep the center one continuous piece. I think either way it would work and look good. Will look forward to seeing your finished quilt.

    Actually that makes more sense. Pretty pattern!

    It is precisely as catmcclure has deducted. So each block has one blade of a pinwheel at the top left, top right, bottom left and bottom right. If you want your large rectangle fabrics to be well distributed in your quilt and if you want the blades of each pinwheel to match (as in the pattern photo) you must set it all out on a design wall and are then dealing with a really fussy assembly process to make sure you sew each piece in the proper place (and the blades going the proper directions) to acheive this.

    I really like this pattern and in the colors shown it looks so bright and summery.

    Thanks DebraK for finding the pattern source!

    I would love to know how to 'Google' the image. If you would share that I would really appreciate it.

    Thanks, Brenda

    I stumbled across this quilt image (the multi colored pinwheel) and can't find the pattern. I have followed the links and they don't lead to the quilt pattern. It looks like maybe it was for sale at one time but maybe not anymore. Does this look familiar to anyone?

    I am intrigued by how this would be pieced.
    I actually made this quilt for my DGD. I saw a photo and drafted it myself to my size needs. It is an Eleanor Burns pattern, if I am correct...at least the one I used to draft mine was. Look at her books. If I am able to find the original photo tomorrow, I will let you know more. Good Luck. It is an easy quilt and turns out beautifully.

    To break the pattern down in this matter, takes a lot of guessing out of the pattern. I like the quilt and will have to put it on my to do list.

    No need to lay out the entire quilt. Did you notice that all the block half square triangles were made exactly the same with the corners being green, gold, pink, green in the same position in each block so when you turn the blocks the colors will match up. Easy peasy!

    The color layout did vary row by row but all blocks in each row were the same.

    I wish I could draw these patterns for posters, too. I hate this computer.

    This is the basic block. Just have to keep track of which pinwheels are on which corners.

    Thanks - that makes sense now -

    looks like the hardest part would be to keep the pinwheels in order!

    Does anyone have any idea who the fabric is by? It is so colorful and just perfect for this quilt.

    The fabric is "Fun Flowers" by Holly Holderman for Lakehouse Dry Goods.
