    I have started making a "Trust Me Quilt" Does anyone know if it has to have uneven number of original blocks to start with to get the pinwheels to come out correctly? :lol:

    i've never heard of a "Trust Me" quilt, so you couldn't trust ME to answer correctly. :mrgreen:

    A Trust Me Quilt is one where you sew squares together and put a border on them and then cut them apart with a template to make a windmill pattern

    I've just looked at the link that Patrice posted regarding The "Trust Me Quilt". Over here on the Pond we call it "Square Dance".
    Take a look at my Avatar, I made this at a workshop. I would love to make it bigger but just haven't got around to it.

    I have made one. There is a book you can get called "Square Dance" by Martha Thompson.

    They are fun to do.

    Now I know it's other name 'Square Dance' I have made one too. I just didn't recognise the 'Trust Me' title. It's intrigueing, and not quite so easy to sew the squares once they have been cut, as they aren't then on the straight grain (not on a true bias either), and I thought it a touch wasteful in fabric too, but the finished effect is very nice.

    I was thinking why not make the template bigger? I guess I'll find out after the book arrives. :?

    I too went and checked on the internet. I had seen these before, but never made one. Good luck with it and have fun!

    I'm just going on what our senior center quilt instructor is telling us.....evidently there is a pattern.....Woodland Quilts in Whitewater, WI did a class on this quilt. I'm going to try and get a copy of it and I'll post it.

    please do share information about where members can get their own copies of the pattern, but remember that you can't post copies of the pattern itself. :wink:

    I found the book on Amazon. I haven't found the single pattern anywhere. I found where many shops have held classes on this quilt and the pattern was provided in the class. Apparently it was okay to print the single pattern for classes.

    is this a simple quilt made of specifically colored squares, then cut with it's template, then simply twisted? is this what i'm seeing? any waste? is there a way to lay out the original squares so that you end up with pinwheels that do a color thing? also, you have to start with a considerably larger quilt than you want to end up with. i love the possibilities.

    Thanks for all your help. Nice to know the "other" name for this quilt is Square Dance and the name of the author! I am making mine larger than the pictures shown on Web Shots. I am using a 9" square and then a 7-1/2" template. On the pictures shown it does say it HAS to be an uneven number of original squares...Thanks again :mrgreen:

    You can make it with any number of colors or just two which turns out beautifully too! Make sure your original squares are not the same material as your borders or the pinwheel will get lost....

    Here's a place that has a few patterns that seem to do the same thing. Not for sure though, just looking as I'm interested in this pattern too.

    After more searching (page 21 of google) I found one for free
    http://www.silverlanequilting.com/pd...areDancePP.pdf

    if you read down at the bottom of the PDF it says the book is out of print..but you can go to Martingale Pub. and buy the whole book (e book form) for $10.99

    That's a great find! I like the e book concept. Much cheaper than buying the bound version.
