    Question about pinwheels tutorial...

    I would love to see a tutorial that uses the pinwheel technique with charms that you taught us. It seems like there are a lot of quilts that ask for those triangles...and that one can use them creatively...and I would love to hear some of your ideas on that...

    I was thinking that I would use the technique for part of the quilt when I make the jitterbug pattern in Layer cakes, charm packs, and Jelly Rolls by the Linnets. Is that possible?
    Have a fabulous day!

    Kate - are you looking for a tutorial on the easy pinwheels. (HERE) or are you looking for some ideas on how to use them? (Check out my "Blame it on Jenny" Album. 4 blocks very different all made with the pinwheel blocks.)

      Actually, I was thinking more of the technque that Jenny showed - with the putting the two charms together and sewing all the way around, and then cutting them into 4 squares...Those examples are AWESOME! Thanks! That was exactly what I was looking for....although I would love to see a tutorial on how to use this technique to make one of those stars...

        That is the technique I used to make all of those samples. (Isn't that what I linked to? Jenny's tutorial here before she did the Sympoz ones.) I sewed two charms together around and cut into four. A couple of them I needed to also make some squares but mostly just several of the half triangle blocks.

            Thank you Nancy. Yes I am planning on it. But I was winging it and the blocks are around 16". I guess I won't need many. Maybe a big square couch blanket.

            Right now that project is on hold while I make my Wild Swap blocks. (Only 6 complete BUT half way done because all the component pieces are pieced.) I'm itching to make the middle-column second-down or the bottom-row second-in on my graph paper idea blocks.
