Whirligig Quilt Block
Whirligig Quit Blocks come in two varieties. The most common pattern uses half-square triangles.
The second variation uses only one wonky rectangle pattern piece, and both pattern types can be assembled in a number of different designs.
This quilt block is very simple to make, so it's perfect for beginners. However, it looks like a much more intricate pattern and is a great favorite for casual, colorful quilts and wall hangings. Even though this quilt block has a long history, it has a very modern, trendy feel when made up in bold solids and strong patterned prints.
Use from two to nine different fabrics to create loads of designs. This is a great pattern to use up scraps or to make a dent in your stash. If you use one base color and create each pinwheel in a different color, you can create a multi-colored quilt in record time. This quilt is perfect for all ages and blends well with most decorating styles.
