    Need help finding pattern or cutting instructions

    Can anyone point me toward a pattern for this type of quilt? Any help would be greatly appreciated!

    It looks like it is paper pieced. There are lots of pinwheel blocks on quilterscache.com. It's not the same as the one you pictured but here's one example....

    I found the one like yours. Although the pattern here is not paper pieced I would make it PP. It would be easier (to me) than cutting out all those pieces and trying to get them just right.

    Eleanor Burns of Quilt In A Day was doing one on her show today. actually it was a very small block done as a "quilt" on a large red barn block. she later showed quilts with just this block.

    I remember being told years ago ... "make friends before you need them."

    Maybe one of your friends has a version of EQ and could do it up for you. You wouldn't need to PP as it is an easy regular piecing pattern.

    Have fun quilting! If it isn't fun, you will miss a lot.

    just so you can see, this is the small block she made to be put on the barn. scroll down to the second video and click to run it.

    Mary Fons and Mary Ann Fons just did this pattern last Saturday on my local PBS station. If you can access such on your computer, you'll find a good tutorial. I didn't keep the show, so I can't tell you the title.

    A fairly simple pattern that doesn't require paper piecing. Useful is that's your favorite, but not necessary by any means.

    the link you have is NOT the same pinwheel, a pretty pinwheel but more complex.

    Continuing. Break the block down into small squares. For instance the lower left simple block is a black and light green triangle in upper left corner with a pink and black triangle in the lower right corner.

    The black/green can be cut from a larger HST (easiest way)
    The lower right triangle is a right angle triangle in pink with a black strip to finish it out to the same size triangle as the black/green triangle. Mary and Mary Ann added a rectangular strip to the side of the pink triangle-------------then trimmed out the triangle, rather that trying to cut a quadrilateral just the exact size.

    Like eating an elephant--------------one bite at a time.

    Looks like the same design as Kaleidscope Pinwheel in the original Stack-n-Whack pattern from Bethany Renolds. However it is not a kaleidscope arrangement. So guess one would call it the basic pinwheel design.

    I know it as kaleidescope, also stack and whack and saw blade. All of those names also refer to other patterns, unfortunately.

    You cut squares into 8 pieces, as I have shown in grey and white. You can do this with stacked squares. If you do, I strongly suggest you run basting stitches or pin well before you cut. The darker grey pieces I've shown are background. for a true kaleidescope, you need to be very careful in lining up your layers.

    Missouri Star Quilt Company has a tutorial on it, I think it's called stack and wack.

    Eleanor Burns offers a 12-inch block as a free pattern download called Merry-Go-Round. Scroll down on the right at this site:

    Half of the squares are just HSTs....
