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.

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.
