    Can you help me find this pattern?

    http://pinterest.com/pin/154107618471591248/

    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.

    looks to me like if your pinwheel is say a 5" finished block, then you would need a 2 piece strip block that finished at 5" next to it and also below the pinwheel, and a 5" block next to that strip block. This makes the section a 4 block section.
    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.

    So you think those large rectangles are not a continuous piece of fabric but actually 3 pieces?

    DebraK, wow, how did you do that? I am always impressed with internet sleuths skills.

    Looks like a variation of a 9 patch. The 4 corners are pinwheels, the middle is a solid block, the middle top, sides, and bottom are pieced strip blocks. As long as all 9 pieces are the same size it would turn out right. Pretty quilt.

    Have you looked through all the patterns at http://patternspot.com/ ? It looks like a place for different designers to sell patterns.

    At first thought, I was thinking it was a 9-patch with the pinwheels in the corners. You might be able to piece it like a 9patch, but the longer pieces might be easier done as a bar. But if you piece the longer pieces as a long bar, then the blocks are intertwined. In the photo, the bars don't appear to be pieced, they appear to be a single bar.

    I'm stumped, unless the longer bars are pieced.

    charsuewilson--I agree that the large rectangles definitely look like a continuous piece of fabric and not pieces (you can tell there is no break in the design in some blocks).

    This would be a perfect pattern for the Go die cut. All the shapes are available in a die.
    Got fabric?

    Divide the pinwheels into 1/4's and you can see a fence rail pattern with the darker print as the center rail and two lighter strips on either side. ALSO, the lighter strips have a half square triangle at each end, each done in a different color to make up the pinwheel. As you make the blocks, you need to make sure that the pinwheel part in the corner matches the adjacent block to make up the pinwheel, and that they are turned the right way. On one square, the rail is up and down, the next is sideways. At least that is the way I see it!

    I believe it is a quilt in a day signature pattern from Eleanor Burns, called Pinwheels & rectangles. The only difference is it doesn't include the borders. Use of variety of brights makes it look different!

    yngldy--I was picking out the details that you have noted. I think you have to keep the pinwheels un-pieced, put everything on a design wall and then start to very, very carefully contruct it as you noted.

    Thanks for bringing this pattern to my attention! I love it and ordered it a few minutes ago. Now the search for fabric that is as adorable as those in the quilt!

    This is how I see it. The rectangle has to be in three pieces for this to work. I broke the block up for you. Hope it helps.

    Rosyhf--thanks for the visual. I think that makes the most sense and would certainly be the easiest to piece, but I'm pretty sure this pattern uses the large rectangles as one piece (the fabric design does not look "broken" by seams in any of the large rectangles). I was so intriged by this I ended up purchasing the pattern. Just waiting to get the pdf so I can satisfy my curiosity.

    Thanks.

    Right. The pinwheels are formed from the half squares that are in the corners of the outer strips. When the "rails" are put together, the corners form the pinwheel.

    I agree that the quilt is a lovely one. It is also easy to draw up if you don't feel like buying it. I would have assumed that the pinwheels were 4" or 6", from there, it is just counting squares.

    After staring at the picture of this quilt for some time, I begin to wonder if it is a computer rendering - like from EQ7. Everything is perfectly flat. The binding has exactly the same parts showing all around. And you can't see anywhere that the binding could be joined (unless they were able to match the pattern exactly at the joining. Sooooooo. I think that it is made in 4" squares (4" pinwheels, 4" 2 piece blocks, and 4" solid blocks). Anyone else think so? Ann

    Guess so!! I didn't read all the posts. )

    I received the pattern and it is constructed keeping the large rectangle as one piece and essentially "sashing" it with half of the pinwheel blocks. There is absolutely no directions at all as to how to keep your pinwheels all the same fabric so I can only think that the entire quilt would have to be put on a design wall before any pieces are sewn together.

    Well at least you have satisfied your curiosity lol. If I were to make tho, I would do it the way I broke it up, much easier.

    Rosyhf, even though I ordered the pattern, I think I'll be following your suggestion.

    It's a rail fence pattern.
    The large rectangle is the center rail and is a solid single piece of fabric. The 2 outer rails are pieced--a smaller rectangle with a half square triangle square sewn to either end. The three rails would then be sewn together. The blocks would be set horizontal-vertical-horizontal etc. The outer blocks would require partial blocks to finish them, to make the pinwheels whole.
