Carnival Pinwheel Quilt Pattern

carnival pinsheel quiltAnother scraptastic quilt pattern but with pinwheels this time. There’s a fair bit of cutting involved but seaming the octagons should be easy enough. The sequence starts with sewing the “B” pieces together, then the center piece “A”. If it’s too fussy to attach the hex sides then applique is your friend like stitching down the center circles in  the Dresden Plate pattern.

Then the “C” and “D” pieces are sewn together and seamed to the “B” unit. Then the short sides of  “E and “F” hook up and attached to “D”. Instructions are included in the pattern file to be downloaded below. You’ll end up with 12 inch square blocks, not wonky like the picture at left.
