Pinwheel Patterns

The Pinwheel pattern is a fun traditional quilt square to add to your projects. Below you will find one pattern with rotary cutting directions for a 6 inch Pinwheel. Another link has a template pattern. The template can be used instead of rotary cutting or to check the accuracy of your cutting.

Links to FREE videos explaining the skills needed to complete this block are also listed at the bottom of the page. Check out our Blocks That Teach series for more info about sewing Pinwheels.
