I am so excited to have a block called Pinwheel Punch in Volume 14 of the 100 Blocks magazine by Quiltmaker! This is my fifth block to appear in the 100 Blocks magazines. You can see my previous 100 Blocks: Sewing Triangles in Volume 10, Outlined Plus in Volume 11, Paper Star in Volume 12, and Cloud Burst in Volume 13.
Pinwheel Burst is a great beginner level paper-pieced block. The 12" (finished) block is pieced from four sections with few seams to match.
Here is what a lap sized quilt using this block might look like:
Here is the quilt rendered in some other colors...
Candy Corn Pinwheels!!!
Candy Cane Pinwheels :)
Getting a little crazy, I selectively erased some of the pinwheel parts for a more modern and abstract version... I think that this one might go on my to-do list...
I hope that you have enjoyed all of these renderings of Pinwheel Punch being used in different quilt tops to see how versatile the block is.
